Austria for 2 weeks in early sept.


I have booked a Trip to Austria for 2 weeks. Will be staying in Alpbach for 4 nights, st. wolfgang see for 5 nights and Vienna for 4 nights. I will have a car taken on hire for Alpbach to vienna . Will drop car on Reaching Vienna. I need some information regarding what to do as in sightseeing and country side visits. Can I cover innsbruck and Salzburg from Alpbach in day trips? Do I need to modify my bookings ? Me and my wife would be Travelling. What all should I not miss in this trip.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi there,

Sounds like a good plan. Salzburg is easier to do as daytrip from St. Wolfgang than from Alpbach. I'm afraid the rest of the question is too wide to answer, as both around east Tirol (Alpbach) and Salzburgerland and the rest of the Wolfgang area it's easy to fill weeks with excursions. A good tourist guide book should do magic to help you. Two tips from us:

1] Liechtensteinklamm in St Johan south of Salzburg, impressive gorge.

2] Daytrip to Bratislava from Vienna with part train and part a Danube express boat (Twin city liner)

All the best,

So you have a car for all your travelling and trips?

Alpbach to Innsbruck only 57km and an hour in the car. So yes good day trip.

I would do Salzburg as a day trip from St Wolfgang. From Alpbach = 130km from St Wolfgang = 47km. Plus you seem to have longer in St Wolfgang.

Around St Wolfgang with a car.

There is enough to do to fill a month. So you will need to so some research and decide what you want to do. What do you like? Scenery, history, architecture. Do you intend to do any hiking?

As a starting point look at







And for an idea of what the scenery looks like in the Salzkammergut.
