If you are interested in hiking, sight-seeing and enjoying the lakes, the best time is during summer season - June, July, August. If you are into skiing, you should opt for a winter visit in December or January.

All these cities are well connected by train network in Austria. You can take a flight to Salzburg and from Salzburg, you can reach Innsbruck and Zell Am See by train very conveniently.

Altitude and Acclimatization:
The altitude of these cities ranges between 400-600m and generally, most people do not require time to acclimatize at this height. Do note, if you venture into the mountains that encircle some of these cities, the altitudes will be considerably higher.

Accommodation and Booking:
It is advisable to book your hotels in advance, especially during holiday seasons. Choose accommodations according to your itinerary to avoid long travel.
