Vienna to Innsbruck via Berchtesgaden
This four- or five-day trip allows you to see three of the best cities in Austria, whilst also passing through some incredible rural landscapes along the way. After you’ve seen what the capital has to offer (see our guide for inspiration), you can take the route through Berchtesgaden towards Salzburg. Although this drive is fairly lengthy (around three hours), it allows you to experience the beautiful Lake Königsee on the border with Germany, as well as stunning mountainous trails. Then, head to Salzburg, which can easily be explored in a day or two. Next, it’s on to Innsbruck via the Autobahn A-12, passing through the Ziller Valley on the way.
