    • 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!

      Vienna short trip

      by blueangelgrace Online Now Aug 24, 2016 at 12:36 AM


      I am here again asking for your views, suggestions, and recommendations for must see places in and around Vienna for a very short trip. Will be arriving in the evening, so I guess my day will start on the the next and, leaving on afternoon on my 4th day. Basically, I have 3 full days I am very much interested to see the Beldevere Palace, St. Stephan' Cathedral and the museums, among others. Also, will it be possible to have a day trip in Budapest or Prague? What can I possibly see in a day if I do. This is only an option and I have not checked out yet.

      Also, in terms of location and budget, is Motel One Hauptbahnhof a good choice? Have travelled alone in some parts of Europe and seemed okay and challenging experience. And I want to explore more! I love the culture, people and well, weather is good at this time of the year.

      Looking forward for more travel tips.

      Thank you.

      I will be spending a few days in Vienna next month and would like to find a restaurant and/or bar with easy listening music--even piano music perhaps featuring Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, or "quiet/dreamy" artists. Or even traditional Austrian music without the "touristy" vibe. Is anybody familiar with such a place with a charming atmosphere? Thank you in advance. Linda
