    • 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!

    • What is "best" way to get from Bad Ischl to Prague?

      Bad Ischl Jul 7, 2015 at 11:37 AM

      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?

      Recommendation for a Gasthof or Inn and "must-do" activities?

      Hallstatt Jan 2, 2015 at 6:14 PM

      I've researched Hallstatt a bit, and I know I want to spend a day and night there. Has anybody stayed at a reasonably priced and friendly Gasthof there that isn't far from the lake or center of town? Also, if I'm only spending 24 hours there, what would you recommend doing?

      Linz to Cesky Krumlov

      Linz Dec 29, 2014 at 8:05 PM

      Is the best way to get between Linz and Cesky Krumlov, Cz. to take one of the shuttle buses? How reliable are they and what is the best line? I see from the internet there is at least one daily service between the two cities. Is Linz the closest major town in Austria to take a one to two day diversion to this medieval town? After Cesky Krumlov we will make our way to Vienna. Thanks for your help!
