    • 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!

    • Swimming in the lake

      by Taitty Online Now Jun 24, 2015 at 2:30 AM

      I am in Zell am See for the weekend 1st July - 3rd of July. While I am there, I would like to practice my swimming in the lake using my wet suit in preparation for the Ironman 70.3 at the end of August. Is there a particular area marked out for open water swimming and are there any restrictions that I need to be aware of, for example time when the lake can be used for this activity ? Also, Is there a charge to use the lake as there is in the UK ? Thank you.

      Hi, I am planning a visit to Zell am See around January 4th 2013 for about 6 days as part of my birthday plans. Having priced up the trip as far as accommodation and travel goes, i'm not seeking a little advice on how much spending money i should plan to take for my stay. I am not visiting for the skiing but am planning to maybe spend a day at the Nassfeld Skiing area to have a go a tubing.

      I am planning a trip to Salzburg also for a day.

      I know the details are a bit vague but if anyone has a rough guide as to how much i would need that would be great. Any other trips that are worth doing would also help alot to.

      We (my family of 4; my husband and I, our 16 year old and 11 year old) would love to 'Ski the Austrian Alps!' We are visiting Salzburg for 2 days, and then we can spend 2 nights at a resort to ski( skiing really just one day would be almost good enough), and off to Vienna and Prague.
      This is in mid April, so Im wondering if there'll be enough snow? I heard Zell am see, but my travel agent said Badgastein and we'd have to stay a minimun of 3 to 7 nights? Am I squeezing too much in to 2 days? Is there a convienient way to get to a hotel in Zell am see, rent equipment and get to a lift, for just one day???! Oh Help!!
      Thank you for any advice!
