Hello,

Day two and three look OK but I think you'd struggle to see the old town and go to Hellbrunn in one afternoon. The fortress is a must-see and you can easily spend an hour up there. I'm guessing you'll be going by bus to Hellbrunn (a taxi would be quicker, about ten minutes) which will take about twenty minutes each way and if you wanted to do a trick fountain tour and see the stone theatre at Hellbrunn that would take a couple of hours.

Would you be going to the salt mines on public transport or an organised tour? If you were struggling for time I'd miss out the mines. There's so much to see above ground, especially if the weather is good.

day 2 looks a little hectic. a bike tour that would include mondsee and st gilgen....and then a trip to hallein?

but as hallein and untersberg are close together, you would be better combining those on day 3, but that would also be pushing things if you only have half a day.

The bike tour doesn't include Mondsee! You'd have to be an athlete to bike there and back!!

Hallein and the Untersberg could only be visited together easily if you had a car.

Thanks LizR and nakagoli for you feedback.

I was thinking the bike tour may be able to bring me to some of the places that I intend to go on the 1st half day, hence did not allocate too much time there -> Not a good idea?

Salt mine will be an experience for me and partner and we will be going on public transport. I read that the train/bus to Hallein will take around an hour -> Is this accurate?

As for accomodation, i'm deciding between ACHAT Plaza Zum Hirschen or Hotel am Mirabellplatz for their locations - Near to central. Any comment on the choice?

Train/Bus 45 minutes as per timetable

ACHAT Plaza Zum Hirschen is closer to the railway station than the old town.

Hotel am Mirabellplatz is closer to the old town.

If I had to chose between the two I would go for Hotel am Mirabellplatz.

Have you also looked at.
