Default Road Trip to Salzburg (Austria) from Munich (Germany)

Hi All,

This is my first post after becoming team BHP member. I have been browsing this website since last year and much of the information was very useful.

This time I wanted to make my first contribution to Team BHP Travelogues forum and hope this information is useful for readers of this forum.

My living stay is part time in India and part time in Germany near Frankfurt.

This time we travelled to Salzburg- Austria which is at border between Germany and Austria. Our itinerary details below

Day1-16-Jan-2013: Drive OPEL Insignia from Frankfurt to Munich. 3.5 Hours- 400 KM
Day2- 17-Jan-2013: day trip to Salzburg from Munich with Guided tour by Train-11 Hours
Day3- 18-Jan-2013: Drive home OPEL Insignia from Munich to Frankfurt.3.5 Hours- 400 KM

Salzburg: literally- "Salt Fortress" is the fourth-largest city in Austria and the capital of the federal state of Salzburg. This place is popular for Music lovers

Salzburg was the birthplace of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In the mid 20th century, the city was the setting for parts of the musical and film The Sound of Music.

You could read more in below link.

Since I work for Opel I could get a car for test drive for few days. This time I had Opel Insignia to drive and I wanted to give some details of car and pictures of car and follows below.

I drove many times from Frankfurt to Munich by car. But this time I have taken some pictures to contribute to the forum to have a feel how a German highway (Autobahn- Which has no speed limits) looks like and nice views along highways.

Driving above 200 Kmph is always fun on German Highways (Called Autobahn and some stretches are without speed limit)
Autobahn`s in Germany are restricted for Trucks on Sunday`s so I could drive at 180 kmph on average.
