As a local, I would find the Prague-Salzburg route generally unproblematic, even during winter; many people from Prague use it to get to the Alps for skiing (in which case, the tricky part starts after Salzburg). There are no tall mountains on the way (700 m ASL at most), so you should be fine assuming your car has winter tyres (zimní pneumatiky in Czech; I ...

Enter "Prague" and "Salzburg" into the Rome2Rio website and you'll see lots of alternatives for getting from one of these cities to the other. While having a car can make country touring easier because you can stop when and where you want, having a car within a European city is a challenge, and usually best avoided. These are old places, with narrow ...

Many people drive this route, it is all main roads and there are several routes you can take. Many of the roads will be motorways but not all. And main roads in mountains will not be straight. If your driver has experience with driving in the weather you happen to get, in the kind of landscape you will be in and your car or van is fitted out for the weather,...

A few thoughts in addition to the excellent answers you already have. One thing no-one has mentioned so far: the driver should be happy with driving a manual transmission car. If you travel on first Christmas day (25th) and maybe still on 2nd Christmas day, chances are that roads and trains will be almost empty compared to traveling before or after ...

Accord to the Salzburger Verkehrsverbund, a single ticket from Salzburg to Bad Ischl costs 10.10 EUR: You can indeed buy the ticket from the driver. The Austrian Federal Railways quote a fare of 4.10 EUR for a single 2nd class ticket from Bad Ischl to Hallstatt:

How about Coworking Salzburg? They rent coworking space for as little as 25EUR (as of writing), including a desk, power outlets and Wi-Fi. The location is not exactly central, but to be fair coworking spaces rarely are.

Sometimes while travelling, tourists need to 'stock up' on a variety of items. Other times one family member may be attending a business meeting and the other family members need to kill a few hours until the family is reunited again. If a place is new and there are language barriers, it is natural for people in some cultures to contemplate what they would ...

I drove this several times and to be honest, I don't understand your question "is it safe...?". Please remember one thing - going by car over mounains in winter is never safe, you never know what can happen, on the other side, there is a very good road in the mountains between Prague and Salzburg. Summary: if you are an experienced driver, don't think about ...

If not, what are some good alternatives to travel to Salzburg apart from flying. Assuming you are flexible, I would recommend going from Prague via Vienna to Salzburg on the train, with an overnight stop in Vienna. This way, you can see another major city. Looking on https://tickets.oebb.at/ it takes 4 hours from Prague to Vienna with Railjet and you can ...

I have used the cable car, so I can only comment on the last part of your trip. For the average tourist, not used to hiking in the mountains, the tour is quite strenuous. It's a 20min walk (90m elevation gain) from parking to the cable car, another 15min (70m) walk from the cable car to the entrance of the cave, and about 700 stairs (134m) to climb inside ...

Since Königssee and Salzburg are much closer to each other than to Munich, it should definitely save your some time and money, roughly 2 hours and 50 EUR. You'll have to decide whether that's worth the hassle of switching acommodations twice, dealing with luggage, etc. You'll probably have more choice regarding acommodation in Salzburg.

About cafes and such: A generally valid answer if a cafe has outlets near the tables won´t be possible, but nobody will have a problem if you just ask. More than "yes, there and there" or "no" won´t happen. This site lists some cafes, restaurants etc. with free WIFI: Afro Cafe, Bürgerspitalplatz 5 Altstadt Hotel Garni Trumer Stube, Bergstraße 6 ...

As an alternative, google for "Prague Salzburg Limo". €379 gets six people and luggage in large car from Prague to Salzburg, and you can add stops on the way at sightseeing places.

Depending on your mobility (physical, amount and weight of luggage) it may be that the faster way is to use the stairs (Some platforms have escalators). Salzburg Hauptbahnhof is not that big and every platform is accessed from the underground "hub". Waiting for the lift may cost you more time and they are not that big, so it is entirely possible that the ...

The temperature in Untersberg in August averages about 18.3°C, with a range of 24.2°C at the warmest to 13.5°C at the coldest. As the trip nears, you may want to look at the forecasts on the mountain for a better idea of what to anticipate.

Unfortunately I have no information on the particular area. But for train travel in general you may find this page really helpful: http://seat61.com/ It gives detailes info on your railpass question: http://seat61.com/Railpass-and-Eurail-pass-guide.htm You maybe have to find out yourself what the right choice is.
