      Vienna 3 hours ago

      I am booking a stay in Vienna in the first week of March 2015, and notice most of the hotels are fully booked or have higher prices during 4 to 7 March. What will be happening in Vienna during this period (4-7 March 2015) ?
      Thanks

    • Goiserstrasse, Salzburg - Car hire and Sking

      I'm travelling to Vienna/ Salzburg from 29 Dec -3 Jan with a group of friends, ending our trip in Salzburg. We are staying in the area of Goiserstrasse, Salzburg for a few days, would we need to hire a car for the time we are there? or is everything local - supermarket/ski resorts/bars?

      We plan to go skiing which resorts would be best recommend for beginners?

    • New Year's Eve in Vienna

      Vienna Nov 26, 2014 at 7:44 PM

      We are a group of three students / recent graduates in our early twenties, traveling through Europe over the coming months. We will be in Vienna for three nights over the New Year period (30th dec - 2nd jan), more by chance than design - although it does look like a fun place for it! We're all on a bit of a budget, so the many galas/concerts aren't really on the cards. The New Year's Eve Trail looks good, and it seems like the streets will be flooded with people and there will be fireworks etc.

      My question is: where are the good places to drink and bring in the new year in the evening for a young group such as ours? And particularly after midnight - will we be fine just going to different bars/clubs or do we need to be looking into buying tickets for specific nye events?

      Thank you for your replies.

    • Vienna to Salzburg Trains

      Vienna Dec 13, 2014 at 8:01 AM

      Hi, we are looking for a day trip from Vienna to Salzburg and was wondering which train to take. I have checked on the internet and found that OBB (http://www.oebb.at/) for a one way ticket to Salzburg is around 118 euro. Also there is one more train service called westbahn (https://westbahn.at/) but the fair is almost half the price.

      Does anyone know what is the difference between the two train services ?

      5 days in Vienna, 1 day in Salzburg

      Vienna Nov 26, 2014 at 12:21 PM

      Hi everybody!...
      For my Vienna&Salzburg trip (5 days in Vienna, 1 day in Salzburg) I would like to have some suggestions:
      1) For the accommodation, which part would be better?
      2) For the transportation which would be the most economical&beneficial way between daily/hourly cards, e.t.c.?
      From airport to the Centrum which way I should choose?..bus or metro?...
      3) For the museums; top 3 or 4?
      4) For the palaces I have a concern: Spring or summer time would be nice...but in winter time!? Does it still worth to visit!?..Unless you could not be able to sit at the gardens... only the interior side!?...
      5) Nontouristic, nice and good (and with reasonable prices) restaurant suggestions, with delicious food advises?
      6) Enjoyable, nice streets, and other worth to see places?
      and any other "must to do" or "do it you'd love it" suggestions would be appreciated.:)

      Thank you very much...best wishes!...

    • Semmering ski trip

      by WendyG Online Now Jul 27, 2007 at 4:07 AM

      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

    • Day Trip to Semmering?

      by sharonjiles Online Now Nov 28, 2004 at 2:11 PM

      My son and daughter-in-law will be in Vienna Dec. 21-30. They want to take a day trip to a beautiful mountainous/ski resort area that is not too far from Vienna. From what I can find out, it seems that Semmering/Hirschenkogel would be a good place for them to spend a day. Questions: Will the train ride from Vienna to Semmering have beautiful scenery? Is the train station right in the middle of the town? Are there taxis in town? There will be lots of snow there, won't there?How far is the cable car to Hirschenkogel from the train station? Can you ride the cable car up and back down just to look around, or is it just for people who are actually skiing? Is there a restaurant on top? Tell me about the main town of Semmering---is it small enough to walk around to shops and restaurants without freezing to death? How long a walk is it to the Grand Hotel Pannhaus from the train station? I have also read about a ski area called Stulech that I thought was at Semmering---if not, where is it?? Any information you could give me about a nice day trip to Semmering would be a wonderful help----I will pass it along to my son---I'm his "travel researcher." Looking forward to hearing from someone. Thanks so much, Sharon Jiles
