Our family of 4 (kids are 22 and 18) will be traveling to Salzburg for 2 nights after a 3 night stay in Munich. We will likely catch the 3:42 train on a Saturday in early July. Will there still be anything to see when we get to Salzburg in the late afternoon / early evening? I assume we’ll check into our hotel (the Salzburg Sheraton), walk around and see as much of the town as we can, and have dinner (recommendations for a Saturday night?).
Also, we are torn what to do the following day (Sunday). We would like to tour around Salzburg and see the places where Mozart lived, Mirabell Gardens, and other Salzburg sights, but we are also interested in either a day trip to Herrenchiemsee or Berchtesgaden / Eagle’s Nest. We do not plan to see castles while in Munich so Herrenchiemsee might be good. However, I understand Berchtesgaden is beautiful too.
We cannot leave Munich earlier on Saturday to see Herrenchiemsee on the way to Salzburg because my husband has to work from Munich that day until 3 p.m.
We leave Salzburg Monday morning for Switzerland via train.
Thanks for your help!
