My Itinerary - can I squeeze in St Gilgen?

Dear Fellow Advisors

I will touch down on Dec 8 at 1.05pm, check in a hotel near Mirabell Garden.

My first day itinerary:

Trinity Church (quick photo shoot)

Mirabell Garden (photo shoot before it gets dark)

Geitredegasse (close at 5pm? 6pm?)

Mozart Square for the 6pm Glockenspiel Bell Chime

Residenzplatz

Mirabell Garden for the Christmas Market.

Second day:

Sound of Music & Hallstatt Day Tour which finishes around d 5pm-6pm.

Third day:

Mozart’s Birthplace

Alter Markt Square

Goldgasse

Salzburger Dom

Hohennsalzburg Fortress

Stift Nonnberg

Last day:

Flight departs 11.05am

After reading so many reviews on St Gilgen (since it's Christmas time), does anyone think it’s possible for me to squeeze a few hours to make a trip there? I seriously doubt it, just need some advice from those who are more familiar.

Many thanks in advance.

2. Re: My Itinerary - can I squeeze in St Gilgen?

this should be on the AUSTRIA forum.

however, i will try to help. first of all, the christmas market is at residenz aquare, and not the mirabell gardens.

the som tour does actually visit st gilgen but i do not know if it gives you time there. they usually stop at the entrance of the town where you can look over the wolfgangsee as per the opening scenes in the film. the christmas market there is open thursday to sunday, and i think that going by your arrival date, you wont see it.

what you could possibly do is to go there on your first day, as the places that you want to visit on that day could be included on your 3 rd day outing, the altstadt is very compact and you would have little problem doing these on that day
