I'm planning to visit Austria for the 1st time and would like to spend 4/5 nights in Salzburg and then another couple of nights in a quite countryside village. I'm looking for a hotel which is centrally located to the main attractions so that I can spend less time on travelling. Any suggestions on which area (or any specific Hotel) to stay during my stay in Salzburg?
Also, which area (countryside) should I select to spend couple of days away from the city ? I love mountains filled with open grasslands ( which is impossible to find in the place I stay :) ) . Please let me know your suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
