Can any one tell me (in New Zealand) where from I can order-on-line / pay on line, and have them sent to Florida, USA for my mother - inexpensively?
Is it possible to visit both Burg Hohenwerfen + Eisriesewelt (Ice Cave) in one day by public transport? Are these places worth to go?
We are planning a trip to Salzburg in December arriving for Christmas market. Are the shops and markets opened on Sunday 23-Dec..
Arriving from Dusseldorf to Satzburg and need easiest/cheapest way to the City Centre. Any suggestions?
We will be visiting Salzburg at the end of September for 3 nights and we're interested in visiting Eisriesenwelt Ice Cave.
1. Should I join a tour group or is self guided efficient enough to visit Eisriesenwelt?
2. How are the prices between tour group and self guided transportation wise?
We are a group of 2. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I live in Brazil and just got a job offer to move to Salzburg. Now, I'm just searching for a place to live and calculating how much would cost to live there. So, any local one could provide me this kind of information?
For how much can I rent a little apartment for 2 people and how much should I spend with everything else per month?
Thank ou so much.
Hi ! Read about this amusement park. We are travelling to salzburg for 4 days with my girls aged 9 and 5. Would like to know more about this park. Is it worth a visit with my girls. Also will it be a full day trip or a half day trip from Salzburg.
Any advice would be welcome. thanks in advance
When I was in Salzburg in June, I took a picture of three bronze or copper rectangles which appear to be on a balcony. I don't know if they are doors or windows but they have hinges and very unique handles. One appears to be trumpets, the other handle has bells at the top, and the third is a musical staff with a G-clef and notes. At the top, each one has a square carving. On one it appears to be a man sleeping, on the middle one there is a couple with their arms around each other's waists, and I can't make out what is on the third one. Do you know what they are and where they are ?
This is my first visit to Austria and Switzerland. I am hoping to get to see as much of both countries as I can within a very limited time. Much appreciate anyone advise please whether I should be taking an overnight train to Zurich or travel via Innsburck take a day walk around Innsburck before taking afternoon/evening train to Zurich? How safe is the overnight train and train station at night in Salzburg? We (two ladies) plan to go for Mozart concert and go straight to train station afterwards that will leave about 3 hrs window time waiting at train station before the overnight train departs.
Thanks before hand.
I have been in salzburg for a couple of weeks now its time to head sadly to Zurich to fly home.
What is the cheapest or best way to get there? Im looking at buses but left the train ride a bit late and they want to charge me way too many euros!
any have a good GPS address for close parking to the funicular.
I just found some limited information online about Winterfest. We will be in Munich in December and are planning a day trip to Salzburg. One of our travelers is an experienced juggler and might enjoy something like this. Is it an "open" sort of things, where you can wander the tents, or do you only purchase tickets for a specific show and there's only one thing going on at a time? From the English portion of their website it was somewhat difficult to be sure. Any guidance would be appreciated it. Opinions on whether it's worth it for the money are much appreciated as well.
It appears that many people suggest "doing your own thing" and skip the pre-packaged tours on the buses. What about the Hop On, Hop Off bus that visits each SOM site? You can get off and send as much (or as little) time as you wish at each site. The only place not covered is apparently the cathedral in Mondsee.
We will visiting Salzburg in Mid March. WE are planning a day trip to the Wolfgangeese area. I saw that the bus takes only 10 minutes to reach St.Wolfgang from Strobl, but the bus is available only once an hour. Are taxis or any other mode of transport(i saw that ferries don't start running until late March) available as I don't want to waste 1 hour waiting for the bus in case i miss the earlier bus by just a few minutes...please help!!
We will be in Salzburg in March 2013 (my hubby,myself and my 10 year old daughter). I am planning a day trip to St.Gilgen and Halstatt. I read about various discount day tickets and found it very confusing. This is what I understood. Please correct me and advice.
The ERT(Einfach Raus Ticket) is valid only on trains and the there is a day bus regional pass only for buses but we need combination of both the above travel. Please advice the best route/transportation/day ticket for my trip. Thanks in advance.
In march, where can I go ballroom dancing? Is there a website to see the venues and availability dates? Are reservations necessary? can you recommend a hostel or B&B? Moderate
My 10 year old daughter, my husband and myself are planning a trip to Austria in March. From Salzburg, we are planning a day trip to Bad Recichenhall(salt mine and inhalitorium) and then lake Königssee and back to Salzburg. Is this doable in a day? And is bayern ticket the best option? please suggest...
Hello. I have just seen a programm on TV about Wolfgang Lake and Sharfberg Mountain.
At the top of the Mountain there was a Hotel, but nobody gave the name of it; and I would very much like to stay there.
Does anyone know the name or anything about it. Thank you.
I am excited to visit the Christmas market in Hohensalzburg and everything the beautiful city has to offer a first-timer like me in salzburg and Austria for that matter. I will be staying in a hotel in Elisabethstrabe and wonder what public transport will take me to the area where the funicular station is located.
Thank you for any helpful information or suggestion.
Merry Christmas to everyone!!
My trip to Munich and Salzburg is coming together very well, except I am still very confused about transportion. My itinerary is:
Arrive in Munich on Friday morning (this week). Immediately travel to Salzburg and return to Munich on Sunday. Stay in Munich for three days, traveling around the town.
What sort of train ticket would best suit our needs (2 adults and 1 19 year old student)?
Thank you so much! I am not used to train travel!
I was planning a trip to Salzburg for 2 days in mid December. Looking at some reviews, I see this may not be a good time to travel. I want to do the Sound of Music tour and see the old town. The rest of my time will be in Munich. Will I be disappointed so much that I should go at a different time?
Hi, I am trying to find out more about potentially visiting Salzburg last week of Dec. I would fly in to Vienna.
1. From Vienna to Salzburg, would it be best to take a train? Will winter affect train schedules generally?
2. Can someone suggest a proposed itenary? Would like to spend more days in Salzburg and probably a full day trip in Vienna?
3. What to expect on a New Year eve and where is best to be?
4. How cold is it and what generally to pack?
Many thanks! =)
I'll be in Salzburg and leaving for Hallstatt on Oct 21.
I did my homework that I will have to take Bus No.150 to Bad Ischl Bahnhof, then take local train to Hallstatt Bahnhof, and ferry. But it seems that there's some changes and the train won't run as normal on that period. After searching from OBB wesite, I have to take only bus from Salzburg to Hallstatt. '
Here're 2 options which I found in the website:
1. Bad Ischl Gotzstrasse(bus 542) 8:17 hrs.
Hallstatt Gosaumuhle Hallstatt Lahn
Traveltime is 40 mins.
Hi there! Please recommend a helpful website where i could book and buy(e-ticket) a train ticket to Berlin. Im at a dilemma which transportation to take....train or plane(airberlin). I would like to secure a ticket as early as possible since i will be traveling during the christmas season.
I will be in Salzburg for full days . do you recommend a trip of Bavarian Mountain tour? it is a full day tour.
Hello again. In a couple of days I will be in Salzburg. Can someone suggest a restaurant with traditional food...off the beaten path? Also...the best (subjective) pastry shop.
Is it more polite to say "guten tag" or "Grüss Gott" in Salzburg, Austria?
