How many days sound fair in Salzburg

I plan to spend 5 days in Austria, my major city is Vienna. I am thing to do a day trip to Salzburg from Vienna. But after researching a little bit, there are actually lots of things to do, I wonder if a day will be enough or if I should do more days. I hate keep moving the luggage around for just 1 or 2 days trip though. And I definitely don't want to spend my 5 days in Vienna, I am afraid running out the things to do. What's your recommendation?

Staying for a night is definitely a good idea, the concerts are great in Salzburg, and the view of castle and old town lit up is great too. So you could on leave the next morning.

Otherwise do a day trip to Salzburg and a day trip to the Wachau valley from Vienna.

One cannot run out of things to do in Vienna after 5 days and even if you would one can visit Klosterneuburg, Wachau, Rust am Neusiedlersee, Schloss Laxenburg, etc....

It is a 2.5 hours train ride to Salzburg with trains all the time. In a day you can see the main sights like old town, castle, Schloss Mirabell, etc.

I guess you have to make a call.

Vienna for 5 days is not enough time. There is so much to do in and around Vienna.

If you do decide to go to Salzburg do as a day trip.

Can't say about Vienna, but so much to do and see in Salzburg itself

we were there for 5 days a few weeks back and found them to be less. So many day excursions too from there..
