We will be there with Kids ( age 9 and 12 ) around 18th to 21st may. Please advise ideal ways to spend these 3 days. Also should Innsbruck done as a day trip from Salzburg or we should stay there ?

I wouldn't bother with Innsbruck at all, frankly. If you have three days there - and May is a lovely time to be in Salzburg - I'd use the time to see a bit of the Salzburg lake area and enjoy the city. The Salzkammergut lake area can be reached in about 45 minutes by bus from Salzburg.

The salt mines are nice there and very interactive. I went there when my daughter was 9 and we had a great time.

Go to Gosau and Hallstat. Lovely lakes and at Gosau you can walk round it in an hour, stop for meal at bar, go up to mountain hut too. Hallstat has a salt mine, with chutes!

At St Wolfgang take cog railway up to peak for great fun, 29 euro each.

So much to do! Rafting too

Depends what you are interested in and what the weather is like.

Salzburg is very close to the German border

Herrenchiemsee on lake Chiemsee at Prien am Chiemsee is only 1hr away by train.


You can visit the palace or just enjoy the lake.

Depending how many of you there are there is a group ticket called the Bayern Ticket. Costs only €29 and gives you unlimited use of ALL Regional public transport in Bavaria. This includes the Regional Trains from Salzburg to Munich (which stop at Prien). The Salzburg-Munich trains run every hour throughout the day until early evening. Only the fast IC, ICE, EC and RAILJET are excluded. Valid from 9am weekdays (midnight weekends) until 3am the following morning. For full T&Cs bahn.de/i/…laender-ticket.shtml and click on Bayern.

There is a Deutsche Bahn "DB" ticket machine at Salzburg station
