Title: Salzburg Austria
Post by: sammy n on August 10, 2014, 02:45:50 PM
I searched for a thread on Salzburg but couldn't find one. Hope there isn't one already....

Anyway I'm going tomorrow to Salzburg for 2 days and was looking for any tips or ideas on what's a "must" to do there?
TIA

Oh wow going tomorrow with no plans!

If you are going to the city Salzburg there are the salt mountain and some water park as far as I remember (I was there at least 12 years ago as a kid)

Also you could go to Munich in germany it is very close by.

If you are going to Salzburg the State  (Bundesland) so depense were you are going....


(It is like NY (just a bit smaller ;) ) the city is in the state)

here is a quick TR, hope this can give you ideas:
We went for 3 days with a 2 year old

Day One
- We flew into Munich airport and rented a car (tip: if you need a car seat, make sure you book as part of the reservation. They told us we could just pick one up when we get there but they didn't end up having one and we wasted half a day driving around Munich getting one)
-Important to note: In Austria you need some type of toll sticker. You can buy these at the gas stations near the border. Also, officially you need an international driver's license to drive there (can be acquired at your local AAA office).
- On the way to our hotel near Salzburg, we went to Lake Konigsee. It's a gorgeous lake in Germany near the border of Austria. There are many things to do around there but we took a boat ride on the lake and it was great. There are different places to get off and places to walk around, etc.
-We stayed in the  Schloss Fuschl Resort and Spa (http://www.starwoodhotels.com/preferredguest/property/overview/index.html?propertyID=3566) using spg points. It is about 25 min drive from town of Salzburg. It is a gorgeous hotel with amazing views, right on a lake and in the mountains. When we went it was cat 6, now it is a 7. There is Sheraton that is a lower category right next to it. We booked with plat account and were upgraded to junior suite.


Day Two
- First stop,  Hellbrun Palace and Trick Fountains (http://www.salzburg.info/en/sights/fortress_palaces/hellbrunn_palace_trick_fountains). We did the tour of the trick fountains. It's very interesting. You probably will get a bit wet, although there are ways to dodge the water if you need to. We enjoyed this a lot. I think you can take a boat or bike from the town of Salzburg to get here as a way to add to the trip.
-Second stop,  Untersberg Cable Car (http://www.salzburg.info/en/sights/excursions/cable_car_untersberg). Amazing, amazing views. There is a small trek at the top to get to the peak. It's not a difficult walk but you have to hold on to your kids. Paragliders take off from here, so you can either go or watch them.
-Third stop, the town of Salzburg. Quaint town to walk around. There are interesting shops and it is the birthplace of Mozart, so you can go to his house and there are museums and opera houses, etc. We just walked around and ate supper next to the river. It was nice and relaxing.

Day Three
-We enjoyed the hotel's many ammenities - beautiful pool and spa and they have boats that you can rent and go out on the lake. The weather was excellent and we really enjoyed this.
-Drove back to Munich, ate supper at Einstein. Sort of Israeli style, food pretty good. It's in the building with the Jewish center and security is tight.
-Stayed in Munich airport hotel and flew back the next morning.

The trip was a year ago, so this is just what I remember off-hand. If you have any other questions, please ask. Also, Lonely Planet's Austria book was amazing - there is a lot to do in the area if you are willing to drive a bit. There are ice caves (not doable with little kids), lookouts, Swarovski headquarters, etc. Always remember  - GIYF  :D

Hotel Goldner-Hirsch, another hotel from SPG Luxury collection. This one is right in the town itself and supposedly many celebrities stay here. We went to have a look around and it seems more old-style - we were glad we spent our points on the one a little further out.

Pedestrian bridge over the river. If you look closely, you can see little locks on the bridge. Similar to Ponte dell'Accademia in Venice, people attach padlocks to show that their love is forever.

Happy to help navigate the German websites. OEBB (Austrian trains) will be the best way to get around to diff cities. Attraction passes will depend on what exactly you want to see and where you want to go.

I will actually be staying in that new hotel in Kaprun (Victoria) and then will drive over to Switzerland. I want to stop on the way in Innsbruck since it looks like a nice place http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g190445-Activities-Innsbruck_Tirol_Austrian_Alps.html

Hi Ari, looks like i am following your itinerary, Also flying to MUC then driving to Austria.
Here are some questions.
1) Which car rental did you use?
2) How do i get an international license? I have to actually go down to AAA office?
3) Can you advise about any other citys around like Kaprun or Innsbruck?
Thanks in advance!!

ETA i just called Sixt (where i booked my car) they said a US license is enough. do you by any chance only have an Israeli license?

1)rented from Budget/Avis in MUC
2)we were in Israel at the time and sent someone to the AAA office for us to get the international license. I think someone has to actually go down there to get it, but it doesnt have to be you as long as you send the proper paperwork.
3)besides for Munich and Salzburg, the only other place we went to was Lake Konigsee (near the border of Germany and Austria - on the way from Munich to Salzburg).

Let me know if you have any other questions - it was one of our most enjoyable trips!!

Yes, I had a US license at the time. Maybe the laws changed? I don't think anyone will actually stop you and ask for it - if the car rental place said you don't need it, maybe you don't (although DROPR, as you can see what happened with me with the carseat). Did you ask them if that applies in Austria as well (because you will be taking the car to a different country)?

There were many things to do around Konigsee - you can google it. We came late in the day because of our carseat fiasco and we were traveling with a toddler so that limited us. We didn't go to Zell Am See so I can't compare to Konigsee, but it looks nice too.

Where are you planning to stay?

What does interest you? maybe we could help you accordingly
I am going to relax and sit on my balcony seeing hashems wonders. Though, this is not what I want to do all day.

If going to Salzburg, I would recommend Sheraton hoif bei Salzburg. Cheap SPG, very nice property, beautiful surroundings and very peaceful. 20 min drive to Salzburg. Good for a night or 2.

Sigmund-Thun-Gorge www.klammkaprun.at Is a nice and quick attraction, you walk (up) on steps for 15-20 minutes through a canyon. The entire way is really nice and relaxing.

Alpine Coaster Maisifiltzer www.maiskogel.at is one of the longest mountain coasters in Austria

The following pictures are from Kitzsteinhorn – the highest mountain of Salzburg
Kitzsteinhorn www.kitzsteinhorn.at is really amazing; it takes 3 cable cars to reach the top. Make sure to be there before 10:00 am, as the line to the last (highest) cable car gets really crowded after 10:00 am. Some people who arrived at 10:30 had to wait more than two hours (!)
There are activities to do by every station like by all major mountains. I prefer to go straight to the top first and then do the activities on the way down.
On top you’ve got a outdoor Gipfelwelt (balcony) with beautiful panoramic scenes, it is freezing up there. From here you can also take a mountain train to a designated area for snow tubing.

In the summer? not really. Rather go to southern Switzerland ie. Saas Fee or Montana. The main reason people go to Austria vs. Switzerland is because economically Austria is much cheaper  in every aspect from gasoline to hotels and everything in between.

However, after visiting both i can confirm that you get what you pay for. Switzerland has much better attractions and is more tourist friendly.

For personal reasons i will not write up a full detailed TR. But i can help you with your questions.

I assume that in the city it was about 65F and on top of Kitzsteinhorn it was about 35F

"A U.S. driver's license alone is not sufficient to drive in Austria. The U.S. driver's license must be accompanied by an international driver's permit (obtainable in the U.S. from AAA) or by an official translation of the U.S. driver's license, which can be obtained at one of the Austrian automobile clubs (ÖAMTC or ARBÖ). This arrangement is only acceptable for the first six months of driving in Austria, after which all drivers must obtain an Austrian license."

Finally cleared it out.

* An international driver's license is required if your national driver's license is not in Roman script. An IDL is also mandatory, by law,

for non-European Union renters except for customers from the following countries: Argentina, Australia,Bolivia, Brazil, Canada,

Colombia, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa & USA. If stopped by the police while driving without an IDL you might incur a

fine & the vehicle may be confiscated for 3 months.In this case, Hertz reserves the right to charge you the non-waivable excess

amount.

There are ice caves (not doable with little kids), lookouts, Swarovski headquarters, etc. Always remember  - GIYF  :D

The only down side is the weather, all over the alps you have to be lucky, but the Salzberg region tends to get allot of rain and it could rain the whole day or even multiple days,and could also be very hot as oposed to Engadin area etc.

Reiterkogelbahn cable car and walk down.
Zell am see - bike around (1 hour) and boat ride.
Kitzsteinhorn - Sleding in the summer!
Schmitten - Go up Schmittenhohebahn walk around and come down with Sonnenalbahn (they both come down to the same point so don't worry about leaving your car) crazy views from zell am see. ( this is a 5 star)
Biking/Segway Rent from hotel.
Behind the hotel very nice park - zipline and small cars for little children (4-6) to drive. (this was a hit for my son).
Golden gate - rope park/big jumping slides/zip line/nice views.
Sigmund-Thun Klamm/Liechtensteinklamm - they are both same idea, you walk along beautiful waterfalls.
Familienberg Maiskogel - alpine slide plus other stuff for kids.
Go kart - (Karting Track Saalbach)
Shopping in Zell am see.
Kristallwelten Swarovski - Indoors good for rainy

Rates from this year are attached.
You can use citi 4th night free with this hotel, because the hotel themselves run the kosher program, unlike other companies.
The hotel is very nice, mainly European hardly any Israelis.

I went twice and landed in Munich, I am a Presidental circle member with Hertz (from united club card).
I booked a mid-size, and once they gave me Volvo XC90 other time Jaguar F-space, I love the German car rentals.

When I landed I received a text of the car spot location, I went up and the keys were waiting in the car, didn't have to wait for anything. I love this service.
