    • 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!


    • Cruise Melk-Durnstein or Krems-Durnstein

      by CarolK19 Online Now 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

      by Jesmondtraveller Online Now 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

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

      by curiousmoi Online Now 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! ^_^
