    • Bike Rental

      Vienna Yesterday

      Hi,
      We are vacationing in Austria. We are in the burg of Donaufeld and would like to rent a bike. I know there are the "City Bikes" in downtown Vienna, but we would like to find one closer to where we are staying...Donaufeld. Does anyone know of a bike store or place where we could rent one bike for several days? Our preference is a hybrid bike. We would like to ride on the trails along the Danube...beautiful!!

      Timetable for Vienna museums

      Vienna Apr 5, 2014 at 1:57 AM

      I get my information from different websites, and I'm going to buy the entrance tickets online. I understand that the upper and lower Belvedere are separate, that I can see the lower on one day, coming early to see the Prunkstall that's open only in the morning. And the upper Belvedere on Thursday to see also at noon the painting restoration. The restoration is open on Tuesday too, but I have a concert in the early evening.

      We'll be staying at the Beethoven hotel, I guess we'll use the metro stations at the Karlsplaz. To which stations should we travel for each Belvedere? or use a tram? or walk to the Lower, it looks close on the map.

      Einfach-Raus tix

      Salzburg Mar 21, 2014 at 7:55 PM

      I just stumbled across this offer (it looks like the German Lander ticket). It seems expensive, but might suit us for some of our short, local trips out from Salzburg. I am assuming it is only for the state it is bought in, like Lander. It may not make economic sense, but I will compare it to buying individual tix for trains.

      Seating at the Vienna Volksoper.

      Vienna Feb 10, 2014 at 1:32 AM

      I'm trying to book tickets for the Volksoper, for the Bartrered Bride. This opera should have a large dance group, who use the whole depth of the stage. So it's important for me to get seats with unobstructed view, and high enough above the stage that we don't see only the front edge of the stage.

      I tried to reserve tickets on the balcony, but I couldn't complete the order, maybe they don't sell this, and maybe the balcony is very far from the stage anyway, and not above the parterre.

      How is the view from the parterre?

      Any use of renewing my German Passport?

      Vienna Feb 8, 2014 at 2:23 AM

      I have a German passport, which was valid till 1996, before Euro. My husband doesn't, so when we go through passport control at airports we always go together at the non-euro control.

      I haven't renewed it, because I don't need it. (I got it first for a trip to Iran in April 1979, our luck that it was for a few days after the Houmeini revolution).

      Are there any discounts in Vienna that would make it worth while to renew? We'll pay mainly for museum entrances, opera. Staying ten days.

      Reserving seats at the Volksoper

      Vienna Feb 7, 2014 at 9:05 AM

      I want to order tickets for "The Bartered Bride" at the Volksoper. On the website I got - Vienna Classic online ticket office - I can select the category, but I don't see that I can select the Balkon. There's a seating map, with prices, but the only option is to choose the price category.

      I want to sit high enough to see the whole depth of the stage for the dances, but not in the gallery which is too high for multifocal glasses.

      Is there another website where I can select a seat, as in the Budapest Opera website, or at least the section?

      Tickets for Boys concert on Easter

      Vienna Feb 4, 2014 at 10:19 AM

      I'm planning our Easter days. I see that there's the Mozart Kroenungsmesse with the Vienna boys choir in the Hofburgkapelle.
      events.wien.info/de/rk/die-w....

      We come to Vienna almost a week earlier. If I order tickets from home, there's a 25% surcharge, no matter how they call it. I's important for us to see the choir, more than to have a complete view of the altar. On the website they don't show where they stand, and I don't want to repeat my disappointment with the Mozart Requiem in Prague, where it could have been a recording, as we saw nobody making the music.

      Do they sell marked seats or just the section?

      RTB Bus 351

      I'm looking for more information on RTB Bus 351 from Dornbirn to Heerbrugg, Switzerland. It is apparently run by a Swiss company and falls under the Swiss Ostwind transit authority, and not the VVV. If I am reading the website (in German) correctly, VVV day tickets are not accepted. Is this correct? Is the Euregio Tageskarte accepted? Is the Swiss GA / Swiss Pass valid? (the website seems to indicate so, but the route is not listed on the Swiss Travel System's synoptic map)

      Any insights appreciated. Thanks!

      I can't find it any more... it was late and dark and I had had some Punsch... We came from the Christmas market at Maria-Theresien-Platz, then walked through Museumsquartier and kept left. Somewhere in the side streets between Mariahilfer Straße and Wienzeile (I think) we found this remarkable place. It was a pub which also was a bookshop (hence entirely non smoking, very pleasant), and if I remember correctly the name was Alex-something. It was located on a street corner, with the entrance right at the corner of the building. Does anyone know it and can tell me the exact name and address?

      We'll take the train from Vienna to Budapest, in April. We already have the date, how long ahead should I book? I prefer to do it online at home before we get to Vienna.

      I see this www.raileurope website. What's this "Flexible second class, Non exchangeable, non refundable" ? Maybe I don't know whats Flexible, but I know what's Non.

      For taking a train to Melk, do we just get to the Westbahnhof and buy the tickets, or should this be done in advance? We don't have anything else to do at the train station area (we'll pass there on the way to Schoenbrunn).

      Museum tickets, credit card use

      On our April visit I'll want to visit several museums - we have nine full days. Is there a concentrated web page listing opening days, or do I have to look separately for information about each museum? I'll try to buy with senior citizens discount, though it may not be possible for us anyway.

      Can I buy tickets ahead at the tourist information? I don't want to stand in line a lot at every museum, or maybe it's not a crowded season? If there's a free entry day, I don't want to be there. I had enough of that at the Hermitage.

      Using credit cards, is it done for buying entrance tickets? Restaurants?
