My family of 4 will spend Christmas in Salzburg, but the question is where about? Trip take only 4 days.
We will be landing on the 23rd afternoon, so the plan is to visit one ofe the Christmas Markets, do shopping for couple of days and go up to the mountains after...where there is bigger possibility of snow :)
We dream about the village, or place in alps, not too far from Salzburg ( maybe 30 minutes , where we could stay in a cozy rented apartment, rooms...with some shop not too far.
We wont be skiing but sledge ride, walking and outdoor fun would be great to experience over our time in Austria.
Can you recommended charming places in the mountains you can easy reach by train or bus or w could rent the car also ( easy roads would have to be recommended too :D ) we could stay for at least 3 nights and then on the last one we could explore Salzburg town in some bit...
