      Private guide, Vienna to Salzburg and back

      Vienna Jul 9, 2014 at 3:04 PM

      My wife and I are looking for a driver/guide to take us from Vienna to Salzburg. Any recommendations? Thanks.


      Salzburg Jun 28, 2014 at 7:08 AM

      I have 3-4 days to spend in Salzburg.

      1. Any suggestions on reasonably priced hotels near the main train station? I want to be close to transportation (train/busses)
      2. I was planning on doing the Hohenwefen fortress, mirabell gardens, mozart house, schools leopldskron. can i get to all of these with public transportation or should i buy a pass on those hop on hop off tourist busses? I want to be as economical as possible. Also, with these attractions in mind, is it worth for me to buy that pass everyone says allows free access to some of the attractions?
      3. I want to visit the Werfen ice caves. How far is this? Should I take a day tour or should I go by public transportation on my own?
      4. Hallstatt- by bus or train? or should I take a tour there?
      5. Having all these things in mind, should I go back to Salzburg or should I stay in Werfen/Hallstatt? I am leaving to Budapest after Salzburg. Hotels seem to be very expensive in Salzburg.

      I don't want to do the typical tourist tours. I want to take a run early in the morning around town, hike, bike around the city, take a dip on a lake if possible, have a picnic somewhere around nature. Any suggestions?!

    • Lokation für JGA in Innsbruck gesucht

      Innsbruck Jul 2, 2014 at 8:13 AM

      Hallo Community, ich schreibe jetzt einfach mal auf deutsch, da ich davon ausgehe, dass nur Einheimische Innsbrucker mir bei dieser Sache helfen können.
      Wir wollen einen etwas ausgefallenen Junggesellenabschied in Innsbruck organisieren und benötigen dafür eine Unterkunft für 7 Personen für ein Wochenende im August (22.-24.08.) in der Nähe eines ruhigen Waldes oder kleinen Berges. Wir wollen in der kleinen Runde ein paar lustige Ritterspiele für den Jungesellen machen und hätten daher gerne unsere Ruhe. Das soll bis in den Nachmittag hinein gehen und anschließend wollen wir in die Innenstadt und eine Bar Hopping Tour machen. Also kein ganz klassischer JGA...
      Wäre also eine Unterkunft (am liebsten ein Appartment, oder ein Hotel mit Mehrbettzimmern) in Fußnähe eines Waldes und in Taxi nähe (10-15 min Autofahrt) von der Innenstadt.
      Hat jemand einen Tipp für mich?
      Danke euch,

      Austria Jun 27, 2014 at 12:28 AM


      We are reaching Salzburg on 4th of July and leaving for Budapest on 7th of July. During the stay we also intend to visit Gmunden for a day (To see the Thomas Bernard residence/museum). We are on a rather tight budget so would prefer to travel by buses.
      1) Are there buses from Salzburg - Gmunden - Salzburg? How much does it cost?
      2)How much would it cost to hire a taxi to Gmunden and back from Salzburg?
      3) Is it better that we visit Gmunden on our way to Budapest?

    • Visiting Seefeld in october

      Seefeld in Tirol Jul 15, 2014 at 5:41 AM

      Hi! Im a 16 year old guy visiting Seefeld next october with my family and i've got a couple of questions.

      First of all, hows the weather there in october? What kind of clothing should i bring with me?
      I'm also interested in meeting new people during the trip, especially my age. What's the best place to hang out/socialise with other travellers and even locals my age? Or are there even many tourists there in october?

      We will also have one daytrip somewhere during our stay, so what are some cool places to go max. 3 hours drive from Seefeld?
      Last but not least: Since i'm 16, which is the legal drinking age there, hows the nightlife there? Can i be able to go to a bar or a nightclub there legally? And do you recommend any nightclubs/bars there? I know i'm young but luckily my parents are chill about the subject and don't have any problems with me possibly going out a couple of times during our trip.

      Sorry bout the long list of questions, but all answers are seriously appreciated!

      Cycling in Vienna

      Vienna Jul 10, 2014 at 2:11 AM

      We will be in Vienna for four days mid August. On an Austrian website I found some themed cycling routes that sound interesting. Unfortunately none of them state the length of the routes and the degree of difficulty. I have raised the question through the contact form on the website, but no reply so far. Maybe some of the VT'ers know about these themed routes?
      Here's the website.

      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.

      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! ^_^

      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?

      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?

      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.
