Hallstatt or not?

We will be in Salzburg the first of May and we be staying for 2 nights.. We arrive by train from Innsbruck probably mid to late morning. We definitely will be taking the SOM tour. Hallstatt looks beautiful but wondering if we should spend the second day with a trip to Hallstatt or should we just stay in Salzburg? Other than just seeing the city and the SOM tour we don't have a lot of definite plans for Salzburg. Would you recommend taking the time from Salzburg to see Hallstatt or just stay put? We could easily spend the morning in Salzburg before we take the train back to Munich after our second night.

It would be feasible! If you like a day out in the countryside, then I would go for it! I frankly would seriously consider it!

Agree

Just check the weather forecast.

100% yes if it's going to be a sunny dry day.

Very scenic bus to Bad Ischl then very scenic train to Hallstatt and very scenic ferry across lake,

Did I forget to say very scenic. :-)

My priorities would be Hallstatt vs. SOM

You can do Hallstatt and SOM in one tour through Bobs Tours (tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g190441-d1…)

Alternately, make your own way there on the next day. Salzburg is great and shouldn't be rushed, but Hallstatt just has to be one of the most beautiful spots on the planet.

Thank you to everyone! I think we will definitely work Hallstatt in to our plans.
