    • Music in September?

      by ChitownBarb Online Now Aug 14, 2015 at 2:50 PM

      When researching our trip to Vienna, we see that neither the Boy's Choir or the Opera are performing when we are there. Does anyone have any suggestions for other music venues that might have performances September 7 through September 11? Or if you can suggest what website to visit to see what's available on those specific dates.

      Also, does one need to carry some kind of temporary health insurance in Austria, or is emergency health care available free to travelers?

      Public transport for children under 16

      by manuna Online Now Jul 21, 2015 at 11:46 PM

      As far as I remember it used to be free for schoolchildren during their holidays, and August was holiday time. Now I read through But the only mentioning I found, that if I purcase Easy City Pass I can be accompanied by a child under 16 free.
      I'm planning to buy 24-hour ticket. Can my child under 16 go free?

      We will be staying at the Austria Classic hotel. I was thinking of taking transit to Belvedere for a short visit to see the palace exterior. Then I would like to take transit from there to Schonbrunn.
      From studying transit maps I think I can take U1 to Belvedere , Quartier Belvedere. Would I then take U1 back to Karlsplatz to transfer to U4 to Schonbrunn?

      Transportation from Salzburg to Vienna Int'l airport

      by KaterinaJordan Online Now May 11, 2015 at 8:10 AM

      Hi all,

      We intend to travel by train from Salzburg to Vienna int'l airport on 11th Oct.2015 to catch our flight on 11:30AM. I believe trains departing aroung 6AM are ok. I checked the official site of Austrian trains but I see many connections (1-3)which are confusing me. An alternative is to travel either by plane (75 Euro) or to depart from Munich airport (and not from Vienna).

    • Boys' Choir

      by CathyB48 Online Now Feb 17, 2015 at 4:32 PM

      My friend and I from the US will be in Vienna for just a few days in early May. We would like to hear the Boys' Choir and notice they will be singing Mass on the Sunday we are there. We see two different sites with information about tickets. One says we cannot buy ahead with a credit card, the other offers tickets but at one price only and pick up must be on week days when we arrive Saturday or deliver to hotel and we are not staying at a hotel. We also understand you can go the morning of for standing room. Should we just do that, and is it easy to get a space? Or have others had experience purchasing tickets online with success, and if so, what site? Any advice will be appreciated. CathyB48
