I will be in the Salzkammengut area for 2-3 days this fall. Thoughts about Bad Ischl vs Hallstat vs St Gillgen as a base to see the area? Also open to other suggestions? Thank you.

1. Re: Salzkammergut

any of these three would be good. but I would tend to base myself somewhere in the middle. so if that is the area you want, then bad ischl would be ideal. however if you want a lakeside location (both hallstatt and st gilgen are lakeside) then st gilgen would be a good base. 40 mins from Salzburg, 20 mins from bad ischl and 45 mins from hallstatt.

are you driving or using public transport? what do you want to see and do?

another place you could consider, is gosau, a more rural location and reasonably close to hallstatt.
