      Linz to Cesky Krumlov

      Linz Dec 29, 2014 at 8:05 PM

      Is the best way to get between Linz and Cesky Krumlov, Cz. to take one of the shuttle buses? How reliable are they and what is the best line? I see from the internet there is at least one daily service between the two cities. Is Linz the closest major town in Austria to take a one to two day diversion to this medieval town? After Cesky Krumlov we will make our way to Vienna. Thanks for your help!

      We are coming to Salzburg and will continue on to Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, back up through Bosnia & Herzegovina, Hungary and finishing up in Vienna.
      Does anyone know if there is a problem with driving a car in through any of these borders?
      We've heard a lot of conflicting reports due to higher theft dangers, etc.

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance,

      Recommendation for a Gasthof or Inn and "must-do" activities?

      Hallstatt Jan 2, 2015 at 6:14 PM

      I've researched Hallstatt a bit, and I know I want to spend a day and night there. Has anybody stayed at a reasonably priced and friendly Gasthof there that isn't far from the lake or center of town? Also, if I'm only spending 24 hours there, what would you recommend doing?

      Finding authentic Austrian folk music and dancing--or even Zither music?

      How do I find restaurants or Heurige that feature authentic Austrian folk music and dancing--or even Zither music? If possible, I am particularly interested in places that aren't too "touristy"--possibly on the outskirts of the city in Heurige?

      Quaint village off the beaten path

      Klagenfurt Jan 1, 2015 at 4:33 PM

      Is there a quaint Austrian village/town in Kärnten where people are friendly and there is a modest hotel? I'm looking to spend a day and night in such a village, but I will not have a car, so it must be reached by bus or train. I'd just like to take a walk or hike in the hills/mountains surrounding it and experience the quiet life, cuisine, wine, and gemütlichkeit of such a place. I will be spending a few days in Seeboden and Millstatt, but they are quite "touristy."

    • Salzburg area in summer with small children

      Austria Dec 29, 2014 at 1:57 AM

      We are planning our summer holiday, but as none of us have been to Austria earlier, we need some expert advice.

      We are travelling with two 4-year olds, and are looking for a quiet place with good options for easy hiking and maybe a nearby place for swimming? Would like some shops and places to eat nearby,but we will rent a car, so we can do with a little distance. Would prefer self catering accommodation, but other affordable alternatives could be interesting.

      Anyone who could point us in the right direction?

      Austria Jan 14, 2015 at 11:39 PM

      We are an old age couple and wish to visit Austria this April. We plan to reach Zurich and then travel to Austria by train. We intend to spend 5 to 6 days in Austria. Our main limitation is that we can not walk more than one Km or 2 two at best. Our main interests are
      Alpine peaks with lot of snow,
      Beautiful lakes and water falls
      Gardens with lot of colourful flowers
      Palaces if we have to walk short distances
      Cathedrals with architectural marvels

      We do not like museums and any thing related with History.

      Our tentative itinerary is one day at Innsbruck, one day at Salzburg and three days at Vienna.

      We invite experts to suggest a suitable plan for our travel and visits
      Also suggest a budget accommodation near to train stations for places of suggested stay.

      Vienna to Melk and back to Vienna

      by Niagaragirl Online Now Sep 20, 2013 at 6:35 AM

      Hi, my husband and I have 4 days in Vienna visit there the second week in October and want to do a day trip to Melk. We are thinking of taking the train from Vienna to Melk; and return to Vienna by boat on the Danube. aren't interested in bike riding, and want to make the best of our time and energy.

      If we do it this way, should be purchase tickets in advance, or buy train and boat tickets when we get there? Also, is this trip worth the day? We appreciate input from experienced travelers in this area.

      Thank you.

    • Combined 50 EUR ticket

      by tatt Online Now Apr 9, 2011 at 5:53 AM

      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

      by rivilian Online Now 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

      by oinchats Online Now 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.

    • Travel between Melk, Durnstein, and Vienna

      by bsholl Online Now Jan 28, 2007 at 10:58 AM

      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.
