My husband and I are flying into Munich from Toronto on Sept. 12 and depart from Vienna on Oct 2 which gives us three weeks to explore. We will be travelling by train to get to major centres and using public transportation while we are there. We like to explore cities, towns and villages but prefer to stay longer at each destination and do days out rather than moving too frequently. We have the Rick Steves’ Guide book – Vienna, Salzburg and Tirol and usually follow his recommendations to the T!
I’d be interested to hear opinions on our proposed itinerary. Also, should we stay in Hallstatt overnight then continue on to Vienna or do it as a day trip from Salzburg? Any suggestions are welcome.
Munich: 5 nights with day trips to Neuschwanstein/Hobenschwangau Castles and Herrenchiemsee Palace
Innsbruck/Hall: 2 nights
Salzburg: 7 nights with day trips to Salzkammergut lake area, Berchtesgaden/Konigssee, and possibly Hallstatt
Vienna: 6 nights with an outing to Melk/Danube Valley
