      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.

      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.

    • travel between Durnstein and Krems

      We would like to stop off at Durnstein on our day trip through the Wachau valley. We intend to buy a combi ticket from Vienna and get off the boat at Durnstein instead Krems. We should arrive in Durnstein at about 15.10.

      1) how long is the walk into town from where we will dock and what would be the best use of our time there as we will only have about an hour or so.
      2) from Durnstein we will have to get to Krems for our journey back to Vienna, should we take a bus or is there a train to take us to Krems, we plan to catch the 18.02 train back to Vienna and would like a little time also in Krems if possible.

      many thanks

      Learning Dürnstein being a beautiful town, I'm planning a day-trip there from Vienna and wondering if anyone wouldn't mind sharing your precious experiences and insight to help me make some wonderful memories about this trip!

      (1) Is it feasible to make a day-trip from Vienna to Dürnstein or would it be too much a rush?

      (2) Does anyone know if it's possible to take the train there then cruise back OR the other way around?

      (3) I read about the railroad route from Vienna to Krems but there are multiple stops for Krems, which one(s) should I take?

      (4) If anyone would like to recommend me other route(s) to explore the Wachau valley, I'd be just as grateful as well!

      Many many thanks to all! ^_^

      Hi guys,

      i plan taking my mother and partner to melk (from vienna) for a one-day holiday and have looked at your comments for options.

      do u think the 50 Eur ticket is worth it, since we'd like to both see the abbey and do the boat trip? I haven't found any details of the ticket yet.

      What is your opinion? DO u know of any restrictions if the ticket is used, such as timing? Should we just pay as we go or would it turn out more expensive?

      Thanks so much!!

      Melk to Vienna via the Danube

      Melk May 15, 2010 at 7:59 AM

      Twenty-five years ago, when I lived in Vienna, I would take visitors to Melk on the train from the Westbahnhof, tour the Melk Abbey, then return to Vienna on a boat that arrived back in Vienna around 7:30 PM (at Schwedenplatz? memory fails me!).

      I am about to return to Vienna after 25 years, and looking at the boat schedules, I do not see any of them traveling from Melk to Vienna. Instead all their routes terminate in Krems, and from there one must take a train back to Vienna.

      Does anyone know of a ship line that carries passengers from Melk all the way back to Vienna?

      Melk May 2, 2010 at 8:22 PM

      Looking for a b & b in Melk or Krems close to the river, quiet and preferably under 100 Euros per night.

      I would also appreciate a recommendation in Krems and your opinion as to which is a better place to use as a base to explore the area by car. For example we have stayed in Halstatt before and it is a bit too small for us as we prefer Bad Ischl over Hallstatt as a place to use as a base.

      I would also appreciate any recommendations of town in the area to see.

I would like to know when the ski season starts there in Semmering, and whether it will be too crowded in early December? Also, are there many hostels or alternative sorts of accomodation (cheaper accomodation) apart from Grandhotel Panhans, if so how far are they from the ski mountain? Does anyone know where (a website) I can check up for prices of ski hire and ski passes there?
      Since I am travelling solo, I'd like to know as much information as possible for peace of mind.
