Best way to get from Salzburg to Hallstatt, then to Vienna

At the end of April, we will be arriving in Salzburg from Germany (by car). What would be the easiest way to get to Hallstatt, stay for a day or two, then go on to Vienna. We will not have a car so will need train (?) transport from Salzburg on. Is this even feasible?

If we stay in Salzburg, what would be a reasonably priced pension, b&b, hotel near a railway station and within the older portion of the city? Sorry if I'm asking for the world!

Salzburg to Hallstatt:

Option 1: regional bus #150 to Bad Ischl, then by two other buses to Hallstatt

Option 2: regional bus #150 to Bad Ischl, then by local train to Hallstatt, final part by ferry

Option 3: express or local train to Attnang-Puchheim, then by local train to Hallstatt, final part by ferry

Check connections here: www.oebb.at/en

In order to see connections involving the abovementioned bus service #150 use, in case the system does not display them, "Strobl" as intermediate stop.

Hallstatt to Vienna:

Local train to Attnang-Puchheim, then express train to Vienna. www.oebb.at/en

Please also use the searc h function of the forum as advice on this has been given numerous times! Thanks.

Asked so many times I created a short guide.

Railway station in Salzburg is not in the old town. It's not a nice area.

I would try and stay in the old town if you can.

Examples of Old town Hotels.

Or try east of the river. Not old town but closer to railway station and bus stops at the Mirabellplatz.

You can get the #150 from the Mirabellplatz.

Example in that area.
