Hi all
I am planing a mini retreat (for about three days in the Zaltzburg/Insbruk area (Austria).
My plan is to fly into Munich (Germany), rent a car and crossing into Austria.

I would like to hear from you guys, does it make sense the way I wanna get there?
any recomendations for a geat B&B (Zimmer) that is a bit out in the country?
any ideas about places that are a "must see"? I like nature walk but like also a good classical concerts......

Thanks for your time.

Even though there are probably more flights into Munich (and maybe cheaper ones - I don't know where you're flying in from), why not fly directly to Salzburg?

has a list with all the destinations that can be reached by direct flight to/from Salzburg as well as a list of the airlines.

Your plan is good, but I would take the train from Munich to Austria. It will be faster to get out of Munich this way (Munich is a big city). Plus if you rent the car in Salzburg it will come with a sticker that says that all Austrian tolls are already paid for. If you rent the car in Munich you need to buy this toll sticker at a gas station in Munich for the car.

If you like to spend a day hiking or so, check out Rauris. In Rauris I can recommend Pension Anneliese.

Rauris is one of the small villages located inside the National Park Hohe Tauern.

In 2004 my family flew into Munich and days later took the train to Salzburg. Only about an hour trip. We rented a car & stayed outside Salzburg in Anif, noted for it's small privately-owned castle located on an island. Our hotel was Hotel Gartenauer (google it). My father actually befriended the inn keepers during WWII and we returned & lodged there. Very pleasant; breakfast included & wonderful. A small swimming pool with large backyard garden area for relaxing. The town is lovely & quiet and consists mostly of inns & restaurants. We walked to & enjoyed one restaurant in an old farmstead with barns & courtyards. The food was great. Salzburg was about a 15 minute drive away. This was during Salzburg's annual Musical Festival. Some members of our group attended concerts in the city.
