My son and I will be traveling to Austria to train in table tennis in Schwechat. We do not want to stay in Schwechat but are drawn to Baden Bei Wien. I would like to stay in an apartment or live with a family near the center of town. We would like to be able to take a train everyday to Schwechat and Vienna on our free days. Can anyone offer me any suggestions or know someone that we can stay with?
Hi, 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! ^_^
can I buy there camera and Mp3player with a reliable and standard quality and cheaper price? Does it need a Schengen visa or just Austrian visa is enough ?
Dear Sir/Madam, I should like very much to visit Mary Vetsera's tomb. I am flying from Oporto (Portugal) to Österreich on purpose to see it. This will be in the middle of October. However, I'm afraid to get to the cemetery and find it closed. Therefore, I should like to know if the cemetery closes at any day of the week and which are the visiting hours. Thank you very much in advance. Greatest regards from Gerito
How to go there from vienna to perchtoldsdorf by train?
I want to travel Melk by train from Vienna and then leave for Salzburg, could you tell me is there any luggage storage in the Melk train station?
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!!
Hello, I was at ruin Aggstein in 1987 an saw evidence of a fire and an old stove. When I went back in 2006, they were gone. Does anyone know when the changes to the lower parts of Aggstein happened. My grandmother hid her dolls in the stove, and my greatgrandmother died in the fire. Judy (email@example.com)

Is there a way to get up the hill to the abby besides walking? We are arriving by river boat. We thought we could save a little money by doing the optional trip on our own.
any idea on the cost of a train from vienna to Melk. travelling September 2010.
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?
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. Thanks Orrin

My family and I were Hungarian refugees in Austria in 1956-1957. About the first 3 months we lived in a beautiful small hotel a villa that served as a sanitarium part of the year in Baden bei Wien. I was only 10 years old at the time. However, I still remember the beautiful setting. To get there our auto had to drive a serpentine road. We were treated royally during our entire stay. I remember the wrought iron fence by the entrence. I am trying to plan a return visit possibly this summer. Would anyone have the name of the place with possible photographs? Much thanks in advance PhilB2003
Hi, I'm from Australia, and I will be travelling to Vienna solo for one week in early Dec (2-8 Dec). I am considering whether to go ski in Semmering since it is one of the few ski resorts close to Vienna. 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. Appreciate your response. Wendy G

I am putting together an itinerary for travel in Austria for May 2007. I need help in arranging boat travel between Melk, Durnstein and Vienna on May 19th, 20th and 21st. The group arives in Melk around noon on the 19th. We are hoping that's enough time to tour the Abbey and then catch a boat/ferry to Durnstein on the 20th...returning to Vienna on the 21st. Is there a web site for water transport between these destinations? (I did find a cruise for Sunday the 21st to Vienna, but no timetables.) Is there a timetable out there somewhere, and an ability to book with someone for these three destinations in advance? Thanks.
I just visited Melk Abbey and was completely overwhelmed by the beauty of the 2 spiral staircases there. Does anyone know the web-links to a detail history of these two staircases. I just could not find anything after exhaustive search via Google. Charles

We will be visiting in Amstetten for 3 days in late March, staying at the Hotel Exel and spending time with our son, who lives there and teaches at the Bundesgymnasium in Amstetten and at the Melk Abbey school. We plan to visit the Abbey and take some side trips, possibly to Salszburg or Linz. Does anyone have any other suggestions for things to do or see there during that time of the year?
I would like to have a day trip to Melk from Vienna. May I know how to go there and how far away from Vienna? Or any other suburban which is attractive to go like Hallstatt in Salzburg?? Kindly advise. Thanks.
