Everything was wonderful, especially the nature, the mountains, we got a little lost in the forest of the hotels, which always had lively corners for children...everything was wonderful and it's fun to remember it, especially when missiles are thrown at your head

Hallstatt salt mines were the highlight of the trip, we really like the guided tour guide. Also the agent at Megadrive told us to give salzburg a day to explore, we weren't planning to, but following his recommendation we found that Salzburg was a beautiful city!

Car not needed if only staying in Salzburg itself as public transport is great and included with the salzburg visitor card. If travelling further afield then definitely recommend.
