Town to visit in-between Vienna and Innsbruck by train (besides Salzburg or Hallstatt)

I will be traveling from Vienna to Innsbruck via train and want to spend two days in a town that would serve as a good spot to explore. I have seen lots of comments on Hallstatt and of course the amazing Hallstatt which look amazing but want to consider other options. The pinch is we will not have a car and will be traveling by train and/or bus. Any towns in the salkammergut region that come to mind or perhaps a different region? I enjoy hiking, scenery, biking, swimming and pretty much anything.
I have nothing against Salzburg and Hallstatt, just curious what else people have explored.

Did you drive a car to Bad Ischl or were you using public transportation? :)

The other main area covered in Rick's books and TV shows is the charming portion of the Danube Valley around Melk.
