Salzburg to Hallstatt - back through Bad Ischl

My husband and I will be in Salzburg for 3 days and are wondering if we should take a road trip [we'll have a rental car] from Salzburg to Hallstatt and then back to Salzburg through Bad Ischl? Both look like lovely places to see. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

It's a very nice drive along Lake Wolfgang down to Bad Ischl then onto Hallstatt.

I am biased towards Bad Ischl of course.

If you can on the way back stop in Bad Ischl and take a look at the park and theatre house and other lovely buildings.

And I have to 100% recomend a visit to Zauners on the esplande for Kaiserschmarrn or a cake.

If you get to Hallstatt and the weather is poor carry onto Obertraun and the cable car station. Go up one cable car and visit the ice cave. (Wear good footwear and take a fleece)

Actually, we're thinking of driving from Salzburg to Hallstatt first, then driving through Bad Ischl and Sankt Wolfgang on the way back to Salzburg. Thanks so much for your reply!

Either way is fine, although I usually recommend the Salzburg - Hallstatt - Bad Ischl, etc. route. Bad Ischl has some great cafes, just right for the afternoon Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and pastry) stiop.

It seems like our decision is now made! This sounds like a more interesting road trip from Salzburg than going to Berchtesgaden. From what I've read, unless you spend a pretty penny on a long guided tour, you don't end up seeing much but the view from the top. This road trip will show us more of upper Austria. Thanks for all of your help.
