    • 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!

    • Best place to swim and why?

      Sankt Gilgen Apr 27, 2016 at 5:14 PM

      1. Where is the (walkable from village) best swimming in /nr St Gilgen for an afternoon - comfortable, shallow and safe with amenities and more natural spots?
      2. Your favourite lakeside restaurants, and ones with amazing lakeside views further up in the town?
      3. Other unusual tips for a Summer 10-day visit (no car)?

      Thanks fellow St Gilgen fans!

      Group of 12 visiting Salzburg

      Salzburg Jul 6, 2015 at 7:46 AM

      Hi All,

      We are a group of 12 traveling to Salzburg in mid September. We have only 3 days in Salzburg. We plan to spend the 1st day exploring Salzburg. Day 2 :we plan to do the ice caves and the Hitlers nest. I wanted to know if there are any good tours which could combine both or any tour company that can customise a tour for us. Also wanted to know if we could just take cars and drive up and do both. Day 3 we plan to do the sound of music tour.

      Any suggestions how to go about this or any more ideas are welcome.

      Till Then

      Happy Travelling

    • Swimming in the lake

      Zell am See Jun 24, 2015 at 2:30 AM

      I am in Zell am See for the weekend 1st July - 3rd of July. While I am there, I would like to practice my swimming in the lake using my wet suit in preparation for the Ironman 70.3 at the end of August. Is there a particular area marked out for open water swimming and are there any restrictions that I need to be aware of, for example time when the lake can be used for this activity ? Also, Is there a charge to use the lake as there is in the UK ? Thank you.

    • Looking for a good local restaurant...and maybe a nice bar afterwards

      Salzburg Jun 23, 2015 at 12:24 PM

      Feels like I should open another thread for this topic.
      Can anyone recommend a restaurant where we (group of 8) can get more or less authentic austrian food (or: local food)? I'd prefer a place where local people choose to go, as well, if that's possible. Doesn't have to be fancy, at all...

      Again I've heard to stay away from old town and rather look for a place on the other side of the Salzach. Seems like a lot of people think of Old Town as a tourist 'trap' and its wise to cross the river and search there....and if there are any nice bars in the same area which can accomodate 8 people, that would be great, too (but it's not a must).

      Thanks a lot in advance and thanks for the help in my other thread, as well. :)

      We are traveling to Salzburg from CK and have been trying to figure out pricing and schedules. From what I can find, it seems the private or semi private "Bean Shuttle" is our quickest and most economical option.   

      Has anyone used their services? The pre-booked price is 30 Euros per seat or 800 CZK. Their times seem ideal for us as well. If anyone could offer advice or suggestions please? Thank you in advance, Homer (and Ed)
