      Public transport for children under 16

      Vienna Jul 21, 2015 at 11:46 PM

      As far as I remember it used to be free for schoolchildren during their holidays, and August was holiday time. Now I read through http://www.wienerlinien.at/ But the only mentioning I found, that if I purcase Easy City Pass I can be accompanied by a child under 16 free.
      I'm planning to buy 24-hour ticket. Can my child under 16 go free?

    • What is "best" way to get from Bad Ischl to Prague?

      Bad Ischl Jul 7, 2015 at 11:37 AM

      We will be renting a car in Vienna and spend 4 days day hiking in the Bad Ischl area. Our next destination will be Prague. We have a few questions about how best to proceed...
      1) We would prefer driving, but we have heard that the drop off fee to go from Vienna to Prague is very expensive. Are there any car rental companies who don't charge for this?
      2) Another alternative would be to drive to last train stop within Austria on the train line to Prague. I was looking at train schedules and I can't see another stop before leaving Austria - am I missing something?
      3) Or is just more cost effective and efficient to drive back to Vienna and take the train from there?

      Group of 12 visiting Salzburg

      Salzburg Jul 6, 2015 at 7:46 AM

      Hi All,

      We are a group of 12 traveling to Salzburg in mid September. We have only 3 days in Salzburg. We plan to spend the 1st day exploring Salzburg. Day 2 :we plan to do the ice caves and the Hitlers nest. I wanted to know if there are any good tours which could combine both or any tour company that can customise a tour for us. Also wanted to know if we could just take cars and drive up and do both. Day 3 we plan to do the sound of music tour.

      Any suggestions how to go about this or any more ideas are welcome.

      Till Then

      Happy Travelling

      I am in Zell am See for the weekend 1st July - 3rd of July. While I am there, I would like to practice my swimming in the lake using my wet suit in preparation for the Ironman 70.3 at the end of August. Is there a particular area marked out for open water swimming and are there any restrictions that I need to be aware of, for example time when the lake can be used for this activity ? Also, Is there a charge to use the lake as there is in the UK ? Thank you.

    • Looking for a good local restaurant...and maybe a nice bar afterwards

      Salzburg Jun 23, 2015 at 12:24 PM

      Feels like I should open another thread for this topic.
      Can anyone recommend a restaurant where we (group of 8) can get more or less authentic austrian food (or: local food)? I'd prefer a place where local people choose to go, as well, if that's possible. Doesn't have to be fancy, at all...

      Again I've heard to stay away from old town and rather look for a place on the other side of the Salzach. Seems like a lot of people think of Old Town as a tourist 'trap' and its wise to cross the river and search there....and if there are any nice bars in the same area which can accomodate 8 people, that would be great, too (but it's not a must).

      Thanks a lot in advance and thanks for the help in my other thread, as well. :)

      Based on all the wonderful advice already received, I have finalised my flights. I arrive on the 20th Sep into Munich and will head straight to Salzburg. I fly out of Vienna on 5th October.

      I want to do around 3 days each in Salzburg and Vienna and would love your advice on the remaining 8 days. I am considering basing myself in Zell am See / Kaprun / Saalfelden and do day trips out of there.

      Any suggestions? What about transport links.

      10 Days in Austria

      Austria Jun 12, 2015 at 1:06 AM

      Hello VTers,
      Many thanks for all the wonderful advice already posted on the Austria pages. There seems to be so much to see and do that I am having trouble firming up my itinerary.

      We are travelling 23rd September to 3rd October. We are a couple with a year old baby so not looking for a frenzied trip. We would like to do it at a reasonable pace.

      I have tentatively considered 3 days in Vienna, 1 day in Melk, 3 in Salzburg and 2 in Halstatt and maybe Zell am See.

      Please let me know if this is realistic and also if there is anything that I can add or delete.

      We are looking to either rent a car or take a train. What would you recommend for 10 days.

      Many thanks.
