We will be renting a car in Vienna and spend 4 days day hiking in the Bad Ischl area. Our next destination will be Prague. We have a few questions about how best to proceed...
1) We would prefer driving, but we have heard that the drop off fee to go from Vienna to Prague is very expensive. Are there any car rental companies who don't charge for this?
2) Another alternative would be to drive to last train stop within Austria on the train line to Prague. I was looking at train schedules and I can't see another stop before leaving Austria - am I missing something?
3) Or is just more cost effective and efficient to drive back to Vienna and take the train from there?
We are trying to get from Budapest to Bad Ischl on 29 august and I have tried to Hungarian / Austrian train websites and while it shows a connection, It looks like I cannot book the budapest/Linz part online.
Anyone have ideas on how is easiest to get there?
what operettas are being performed in August through September 2013?
I would appreciate a recommendation for under 100 Euros in quiet area preferably near the river.
