Everywhere you look you're made believe that the walk up the cave is too hard. We did the walk in 45 min and on the way we found an elder man with his dog and a family with 3 children, two of them clearly under...More

If you havent been to Austria, or Salzburg, this is definitely recommended, though it will take almost an entire day from Salzburg. For us, the journey was as exciting as the destination. Sure, the photos on their website have been light enhanced, which is necessary,...More

Most likely not. Even in a car you'd have a tough time seeing all three in one day. Pick one and focus on that. IMHO given your limited time, I'd try to see Hohenwerfen castle.
