I will be spending 3 nights (2.5 days) in Salzburg in May. One of the days will be spent going up to explore Hitler's Eagle's Nest out of Salzburg. I would like to go visit the town of Hallstatt for a day trip from Salzburg on a Sunday.
Is Hallstatt worth going to for a day trip these days? I have read it is getting pretty touristy, but I can handle crowds as long as you aren't stuck waiting in line everywhere you go for hours.
If still worth a visit, what is the most effective way to get there from Salzburg? Train, bus, guided day tour, rental car for the day?
Any feedback on this would be much appreciated, thanks!
