I wanted to visit some less less explored places in Austria and so my itinerary in Austria was - 

Zell am see, Grossglockner, Hallstatt,  and St Wolfgangsee .
Grossglockner was a day trip from Zell am see which i have covered separately on this forum .
So our much awaited  road trip from Netherlands to Austria was a lovely 9 hour drive,  and obviously the best bit was the last 2 hours closer to Zell am see as the views got only better and exciting.
Zell am see is a lovely small quaint town which is famous for its Lake Zeller, and we spent a lovely time by the lake ..we stayed at an unforgettable apartment called Residence Bellevue, which was right opposite the Lake.
The following morning we did our Grossglockner trip which was the most loved part of out trip.
Day 3 we left for the lovely region of Salzkammergut , where we spent a good 4 hours walking through the little village of Hall 
statt which was quite busy with lot of Asian tourists. we shopped some lovely mementos from here, and i was too excited to Rent A Drindl ( austrian traditional attire) and clicked loads of pics in that attire. 
we ate some yummy pastas, as my husband enjoyed his beer sitting by the Lake which itself is a UNESCO world heritage site. 
we stayed overnight at St Wolfgangsee which is 30 mins drive from Hallstatt.
Again a lovely town with a lot of peace and beauty. 
we booked a great guesthouse as we were 5 members and this guesthouse had lovely views and was a lovely cozy house.
