Hi, need some advices
With 3 (28-31 Dec) nights in Salzburg, I intend to do 3 things:
- go to somewhere with nice magnificent view of Austria and probably the borders
- village by the lakes
- rustic towns with Christmas charm
We should reach Salzburg in noon, and thinking of doing:
Day 1: a afternoon city walk to explore the area including supermarket if any > get Salzburg card in the evening and visit museums.
Day 2: to visit Untersberg early in the morning, get off in the noon > visit a rustic village/town.
Day 3: to visit a lake village > evening walk in salzburg city
a) I read that Untersberg is top 2 place to visit and the ride up to train ride to Schafbergbahn is great but expensive. Does Salzburg card covers Schafbergbahn train ticket? Which would you recommend?
b) Between Salzburg Lake District and Salzkammergut, which is more accessible without a car? Is exploration via walking or public bus possible? Can we do without signing up a package?
c) I read that Salzburg city is best explored by foot. Is 1 afternoon + 2 evening too much to complete a salzburg city walk?
d) Which rustic village would you recommend?
e) Thinking of stretching the penny and get the salzburg card on Day 1 Evening so that i could visit museum or galleries at night + whole of day 2 trip + day 3 trip till late afternoon. Do you think it's possible since it's a 48 hrs block.
f) are museums opened at night?
