    • 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!

      Linz to Cesky Krumlov

      by TooTallFinn24 Online Now 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!

      The best way from Linz Airport to Vienna?

      by christine.j Online Now Mar 23, 2008 at 8:09 PM

      What is the best way to get from Linz Blue Danube Airport to Vienna by train? I found the schedule for the airport bus, leaving from a stop outside departure hall, going to Linz busterminal. Is this stop - Kärntnerstrasse - the one for the train station in Linz? Or is it better to go to Hörsching train station instead and take a train to Linz and Vienna from there?
      Thank you for any information.

      I am aware that T-Mobile and Metronet have their

      some extra cards just for few days of usage.

      I want to use my WiFi card and access the net without

      Otherwise, can you recommend any internet caffes?

    • Linz condo/vacation rental

      by dimara Online Now Aug 23, 2004 at 6:58 PM

      Hello from Canada! We will be traveling to Linz next summer and I am having difficulty finding any rentals in this area. The closest I've located so far is one by Attersee. Size may be part of the problem as we are looking for a place that will accommodate 6 people (2 adults and four children). We were hoping for a "Ferienwohnung" ( incl. a kitchen). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Areas within a reasonable distance (so we can drive into Linz daily) would also be helpful.). Thanks in advance! Dimara
