      Visit to the Tyrol

      Austria Jan 16, 2017 at 1:40 PM

      We have been invited to join a couple of family members on a holiday in Austria based in St Anton am Arlberg. They are farmers and keen to see the Almabtrieb Cow Festival that takes place in the area.
      I have always wanted to visit this part of Austrian Tyrol again after faint memories of a school trip to Innsbruck many moons ago.
      I have not found much about Almabtrieb on the Internet and would welcome personal advice and information.

      Group of 12 visiting Salzburg

      by kin79 Online Now 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

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

      by BonesMC Online Now 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)
