First visit to Austria 5 nights October 2014

How shall we spend our 5 nights in Austria?

Planning to fly to Vienna and departing from Salzburg on 6th day.

Family of 4 - all adults

Thinking of hiring a car to travel round Austria from Vienna - Graz - Lienz - Innsbruck - Salzburg.

Shall we stay 2 nights in Vienna, 1 nights in Innsbruck and 2 nights in Salzburg ????

Need your advice. Please !!!!!

As I am living in Linz, which is quite inbetween Vienna and Salzburg, I would recommend you to NOT take the Highway from Krems to Linz. There take the "Donau ufer bundesstraße" which has a great scenery and is actually very famous (Google: Wachau)

Driving easy, this will take you about 2.5 to 3 hours

Maybe you can stay in Linz for the afternoon and night, visit this uprising city (Google: ARS Electronica, Lentos, Landstraße Linz, Hauptplatz, Altstadt,...) and continue to Salzburg the day after on the highway (1.5 hours)
