    • Booking tickets on

      Austria Feb 4, 2017 at 2:07 AM

      Hi! I'm going to start off by saying that I'll really really miss this website, it's immensely helpful, and the members are lovely, and I can't imagine planning a trip without it, so I have to ask a question here before it closes! So my question is, I can't figure out how to book a round trip , on the Austrian train website OBB. I can book only each leg of my journey separately. Is there any way to book a round trip? Help would be achieved, thanks!

      Dürnstein Aug 24, 2016 at 3:09 PM

      Our schedule does not allow us to cruise the Danube all the way from Melk to Krems.
      If we only have the time to cruise half the distance, which segment is the most picturesque?

    • travel between Durnstein and Krems

      Dürnstein Mar 17, 2014 at 6:50 AM

      We would like to stop off at Durnstein on our day trip through the Wachau valley. We intend to buy a combi ticket from Vienna and get off the boat at Durnstein instead Krems. We should arrive in Durnstein at about 15.10.

      1) how long is the walk into town from where we will dock and what would be the best use of our time there as we will only have about an hour or so.
      2) from Durnstein we will have to get to Krems for our journey back to Vienna, should we take a bus or is there a train to take us to Krems, we plan to catch the 18.02 train back to Vienna and would like a little time also in Krems if possible.

      many thanks

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.

    • would really appreciate for any suggestion about a day-trip to Dürnstein!

      Dürnstein Aug 15, 2012 at 12:48 PM


      Learning Dürnstein being a beautiful town, I'm planning a day-trip there from Vienna and wondering if anyone wouldn't mind sharing your precious experiences and insight to help me make some wonderful memories about this trip!

      (1) Is it feasible to make a day-trip from Vienna to Dürnstein or would it be too much a rush?

      (2) Does anyone know if it's possible to take the train there then cruise back OR the other way around?

      (3) I read about the railroad route from Vienna to Krems but there are multiple stops for Krems, which one(s) should I take?

      (4) If anyone would like to recommend me other route(s) to explore the Wachau valley, I'd be just as grateful as well!

      Many many thanks to all! ^_^

    • Combined 50 EUR ticket

      Melk 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!!
