/ Austrian Alps day trips?
You might be pushed to do many in a day. They may lack the altitude of the Western peaks but the initial grind up from the valley is generally just as demanding in terms of time. Generally ascents from the huts to the summits are shorter though meaning you are frequently back to the hut by mid day.
Kaisergebirge maybe. Peaks like Ellmaeur Halt and others could be done from the valley, staying in Soll etc. Only if you had to, mind, as Austrian huts are generally superb.
Try the Hochkonig area, less than one hours drive from Salzburg, stay in 'Dienten am Hochkonig' or Hinterthal.
