      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!

      UK to Schafberg ???

      by Stephens1965 Online Now Dec 7, 2012 at 10:37 AM

      Hi. I have recently seen Schafberg on the TV and I would like to take the train and stay at the Hotel at the top of the mountain. Could anyone advise me how to get to the area, preferably by plane and train. I currently live in Pembrokeshire UK and my nearest airport is Cardiff. Many Thanks in advance for any kind replies :-), Steve

      We have relatives from India arriving end August, staying for a short time with us. (they love awesome sceneries and views of the Alps in particular but could not get a swiss visa unfortunately , only EU). We live in Mannheim and are planning to visit Salzburg for 3 nights end of August and 3 nights in Vienna.

      Our plan currently is
      Day 1: Arrive in Munich by train - spend an hour on a bus tour so my relatives get to see a bit of Marienplatz and Konigplatz - on to Chiemsee - and sleep the night in Salzburg.
      Day 2: Use the Bayern ticket (which we will buy in advance) and visit Konigsee and Eagles Nest at Berchtesgaden. Spend the rest of the day at Salzburg.
      Day 3: Visit either Garmisch Paten Kirchen OR Achensee by train and spend the day there.
      Day 4: Take the bus ride to Wolfgangsee (Mt Schafberg) and Hallstatt from Salzburg.
      Day 5: Take the evening train to Vienna and stay there until Day 8 morning when we have a return flight to Frankfurt (near Mannheim)

      I am unsure about the following:
      a) Can we use the Einfach Raus ticket on the cog train in Mt Schafberg...?
      b) If I were to decide between Garmisch and Achensee which one should I?
      c) Can the Eagles Nest be dropped from the itenary..
      d) Are there other places (Werfen, GrossGlockner, etc) that we should not miss out, which are accessible from Salzburg..and would be recommended in place of the existing itenary

      Thanks a ton... and I find this site very helpful ! thanks to all the members.
