Salzburg in September need itinerary help

We will be traveling soon to Salzburg in September for 3.5 days. We would like to ride the Untersberg cable car to the top of the mountain, see the Golling Waterfall, The Eagles Nest, Lake Konigssee, Lake Hintersee, Ramsau Church, and Werfen Castle. We are not renting a vehicle during our stay and have 1.5 days to accomplish this mission, we are hoping for some suggestions?

The thing looks to me barely possible if you have a car, but no way to do it in a day and half with public transportation.

Each of the items need some hours, if not half of a day, to visit. Even when having car it is impossible to do this in 1.5 days.

Thats what I thought, any suggestions to which outings should be dropped from the itinerary?

The Eagles Nest, Lake Konigssee, Lake Hintersee, Ramsau Church

Königsee and Eagle's Nest will take up a full day. Hintersee is very nice, particularly when paired with a hike from St. Sebastian Church (the church at Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden) through the Zauberwald to reach it, but Königssee is definitely more impressive.

That leaves the Untersberg cable car, Golling Waterfall, and Werfen Castle for a half day.

With transportation time, I think all of those can fill half a day. Untersberg and Golling Waterfall are in the same direction but unfortunately do not have a public transportation connection without going back to Salzburg
