Vienna and Salzburg--How Many Days for Each

by craigcurtis »

Well, for Christmas, my in-laws are giving us air tickets to anywhere in the world and my wife has always wanted to go to Austria. Frankly, I don't know much about it, but I want to book the tickets before they change their mind (long story.....). So I'm wondering how many days we should alot to each? We can likely take 8 days total. And should we also try and duck into Germany? Any help appreciated.

8 days total means 6 days actually available on the ground.  I would split it 3 and 3 between Vienna and Salzburg, with a day trip to a sight of interest to you from Salzburg.  Perhaps Herrenchiemsee in Bavaria, just west of Salzburg.  But there are a lot of other options as well, both for which cities/villages to stay in and for day trips.  When do you think you would travel--time of the year matters in terms of what is best to see, what is open, etc.

I know that I'm chiming in late, but I absolutely fell in love with Vienna. I would do four days there and 2 in Salzburg. I just think it has much more to offer in terms of sights and concerts. A truly extraordinary destination.
