Is the best way to get between Linz and Cesky Krumlov, Cz. to take one of the shuttle buses? How reliable are they and what is the best line? I see from the internet there is at least one daily service between the two cities. Is Linz the closest major town in Austria to take a one to two day diversion to this medieval town? After Cesky Krumlov we will make our way to Vienna. Thanks for your help!
We are coming to Salzburg and will continue on to Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, back up through Bosnia & Herzegovina, Hungary and finishing up in Vienna.
Does anyone know if there is a problem with driving a car in through any of these borders?
We've heard a lot of conflicting reports due to higher theft dangers, etc.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

I've researched Hallstatt a bit, and I know I want to spend a day and night there. Has anybody stayed at a reasonably priced and friendly Gasthof there that isn't far from the lake or center of town? Also, if I'm only spending 24 hours there, what would you recommend doing?
How do I find restaurants or Heurige that feature authentic Austrian folk music and dancing--or even Zither music? If possible, I am particularly interested in places that aren't too "touristy"--possibly on the outskirts of the city in Heurige?
Is there a quaint Austrian village/town in Kärnten where people are friendly and there is a modest hotel? I'm looking to spend a day and night in such a village, but I will not have a car, so it must be reached by bus or train. I'd just like to take a walk or hike in the hills/mountains surrounding it and experience the quiet life, cuisine, wine, and gemütlichkeit of such a place. I will be spending a few days in Seeboden and Millstatt, but they are quite "touristy."
Best area of Vienna to spend 3 nights in.
Am looking for a central area of Vienna with ease of public transportation and within walking distance to restaurants, history and sights.
Coming beginning of July for 3 nights.
Thanks in advance,

We are planning our summer holiday, but as none of us have been to Austria earlier, we need some expert advice.
We are travelling with two 4-year olds, and are looking for a quiet place with good options for easy hiking and maybe a nearby place for swimming? Would like some shops and places to eat nearby,but we will rent a car, so we can do with a little distance. Would prefer self catering accommodation, but other affordable alternatives could be interesting.
Anyone who could point us in the right direction?
We are an old age couple and wish to visit Austria this April. We plan to reach Zurich and then travel to Austria by train. We intend to spend 5 to 6 days in Austria. Our main limitation is that we can not walk more than one Km or 2 two at best. Our main interests are
Alpine peaks with lot of snow,
Beautiful lakes and water falls
Gardens with lot of colourful flowers
Palaces if we have to walk short distances
Cathedrals with architectural marvels
We do not like museums and any thing related with History.
Our tentative itinerary is one day at Innsbruck, one day at Salzburg and three days at Vienna.
We invite experts to suggest a suitable plan for our travel and visits
Also suggest a budget accommodation near to train stations for places of suggested stay.
