Driving through Austria

We are planning to drive through AuStria next week, from Hungary. Any advice on cool places to visit would be appreciated. We are fairly flexible with time constraints, and interested in historical sites, spectacular landscapes and alternative communities. From Austria we will continue into Italy.

it all depends on the weather pattern at the time. could be hot, could be cool. lake areas tend to be a bit more refreshing, so salzkammergut could be good, if it is hot. alternatively, go up high in the tyrol area.

just remember, when going into austria, you need to purchase a vignette (8.4€ for 10 days), as you cross the border. you can purchase at petrol stations on the border. only needed if you use the autobahns.

Drive through Wachau and Salzkammergut. You can go from Salzburg via Grossglockner High Alpine Road down into Italy.

Salzburger67,

Sounds like a good plan.

Please give me names of some towns along the way for the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. I don't see it on the map.

many thanks
