Looking for advice about finding a mid-point location to stay in route from Fussen, Germany to Hallstatt, Austria, I would like to break up the drive and stay in a scenic location. I'm also having difficulty finding a place to stay within Hallstatt. I found an air bnb location about 45 minutes north on Lake Traunsee. Some posts say that Hallstatt can be done in a day while others suggest longer times. If possible, I'd like to stay overnight, hotel recommendations?
Also, when I check google.maps, it gives me a different estimated driving time between the points. I don't know if 3.5 hours is a realistic estimate? When I drove in Germany previously, occasionally it longer than the estimated time. Since I will be on unfamiliar roads, I don't want to be driving for extended periods of time.
Many thanks for advice in advance.
