well, ones a palace with gardens and trick fountains. the other is an old town on a river confluence, where you can walk along the promenade, sit and enjoy coffee by the river, visit franz josefs villa where declaration of ww1 was signed. pass through the salzkammergut area and admire scenery.

so it is entirely up to you, but i know which i would go for.

A palace with trick fountains nak? I think you've got the wrong palace!

Schönbrunn is Austria's most visited attraction and a World Cultural Heritage Site. But it is in a major city so as nak says Bad Ischl is very different. Surely which you see will depend on where you are coming from or going to?

oops. sorry, i was thinking of hellbrunn. confused because they are in two different cities, and i assumed that the op was referring to the salzburg area. so scrub the trick fountains. that reduces it to a palace and gardens. so that makes it an even bigger difference.

but from his posts, i see that op is trying to do vienna and salzburg on a 4 day trip, so it seems like a whistle stop trip. we should really be told of the true itinerary and likes/dislikes.

A bit more research may be called for. The Schonbrunn in Vienna needs the best part of a day to see the palace and gardens.It is stunning. Bad Ischl does not have a castle or palace just a very nice large villa which was the summer residence of the Kaiser and the Empress Elizabeth (Sissi).It is a lovely town in a beautiful setting. In four days you really are trying to cram in too much and unless you have a particular interest in the history of either place they might be best left off your list. What is 'important' to see is whatever excites and interests you.

You will not see Bad Ischl inside. It's a town.

July the 28th is the 100th anniversary of the declaration signed at the Imperial Villa in Bad Ischl.

Which led to the outbreak of World War One.

From Bad Ischl longer way to Salzburg. Go south heading for Hallstatt and then head for Gosau (Then onto Salzburg).

Have a look on Google maps it will make sense. If you get 30 minutes stop at Gosausee. (See my Avatar)

Or just follow the 158 down Lake Wolfgang.
