    • 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!


    • Day trip suggestions from Innsbruck

      Innsbruck Dec 31, 2016 at 11:32 PM

      I am crossing Austria and will be in Vienna and Salzburg before Innsbruck. Just trying to figure out how many days are recommended. I think 2 will be enough for the city. What day trips are suggested (including southern Germany)? Using public transportation.
      Thank you

    • Appropriate clothing

      Mayrhofen May 1, 2016 at 11:39 PM

      We are travelling to Europe for the first time ever in July ( and we are in our late 50's). Really need to know what to bring clothing wise while staying in Mayrhofen at that time. We will go up the mountains to see and hopefully touch the snow as that is an experience we have never had. I know it is summer time there but summer to us at home is 40 degrees celcius. Can you outline what we will need please.

    • A day in Innsbruck.

      Innsbruck Feb 28, 2016 at 9:03 PM

      Hi there, we are a young family and will be travelling with our 3 young kids age 5yr ,3yr and 1yr. We be there in April and be staying in Garmisch. I was thinking of driving down to Innsbruck for a day trip. I have read alot about Hungerburg & Seegrube and it sounds beautiful to be up there. I was thinking of spending half a day up and then the rest of day in Innsbruck Old Town. I have few question to ask and hope my fellow VTs can help me on this.
      (1) How long is the drive from Garmish to Seegrube Innsbruck?
      (2)As i will be crossing border is there any toll that I will pass through?
      (3) Where can I park my car to visit these places?
      (4) How long is the cable car ride up? I am planning to go all the way up where I read I must take another cable car at Hafelekar .
      (5) Is the Innsbruck Old Town nearby?

      We are basically more interested in the views of the surrounding to take beautiful pictures. Not much activities we can do as our kids are still young. Once we are in town we just plan to walk around and 'feel' the city. After that we make our way back to Garmish.
      Thank you in advance.

    • Getting to Ehrwald

      Ehrwald Feb 25, 2016 at 8:41 AM

      I am going to my godson's wedding in Ehrwald in January 2017. I will be flying from London.

      I have never been to this part of the world before and I wanted advice on whether it is better to fly to Innsbruck or to Munich.

      My second question is what to do after that. I understand there is a railway station in Ehrwald but I suppose I could also hire a car. In view of the fact I am going in January, which of these options is likely to be less affected by severe winter weather.

      Thirdly, I'm not interested in skiing in the slightest - but is there anything else in the vicinity it's worth staying an extra day or two to see?

      All advice gladly accepted with thanks!
