I am looking forward a trip to Vienna. I am looking for the best Hikes in Mountains, hut to hut, and accessible from Vienna by Bus or Train. I would reach Vienna probably by noon, so I can travel probably another 3-4 hours top, but less is better. I know there are many options, but they all seem far from Vienna, or quite complicated to reach by bus/train. I am in good shape, I have done a few years of rock climbing and mountaineering by the past, but would be happy for just a great…
What is the best way to travel from the airport into Vienna (destination near Westbahnhof)? I've heard of the CAT, is this included in a 24 hour card? I think there is also a Ubahn option?
I'll be based in Hallstatt for 5 full days. I'd like to spend one full day to explore the village. As for the rest of the time, I am seeking advice for sights to see in the neighbourhood. I'll have a car. I'm interested in picturesque villages, mountain vistas, castles.
I plan several mountain / mountainlake trips this summer in Austria. Anybody want to join or has some good ideas to add some special places? I am Austrian and this are some of my pictures, I do these trips mostly by car, I am based in Vienna:
I love to discover good places like Salfeinsee, Hochkönig, Spiegelsee/Dachstein, Rinnensee, Seebensee, Wildseelodersee and many more
Hi, we are 2 experienced trekkers looking to do 6 days of this walk from 25 - 30 September, ideally 6-7 hrs walking a day. Flights not yet booked but more than likely will be into and out of Innsbruck. A few questions:
1) if you had to pick 6 days of this route, which would you go for (from best scenery point of view)? I see the walk goes via Innsbruck so those stages would be very convenient from a transport point of view but would rather travel for more spectacular scenery.
2) will all…
I am having a trip to Europe soon and will be arriving in Vienna end of this month. I'll travel around in 10 days before coming back to Vienna for study so I want to leave a suitcase there in these 10 days. My student housing does not offer a storage for that. I've been searching and only found an option at the airport but it's quite expensive and more importantly, I have to come back there to pick the suitcase. The station luggage facilities are available but only for up to 24…
I am planning a trip for a few days in Austria, max 6 days, min 3. We are looking to do some hiking, and we want to camp as much as possible to reduce the fees of that trip, and also because we prefer waking up in nature when possible. :)
First question is, how is it possible and easy to camp in the mountains, or forests, while hiking in ( or outside ) National Park ? I have read that in Tyrol, it is more severe about where you camp, and must reserve a space, any idea where we could…
We're going to Traviata at the Volksoper (last night of the season & Staatsoper was sold out) and figure that dinner afterwards is in order. Any restaurant suggestions in the vicinity of the Volksoper? We're consumers of fish and veggies, no meats. Thanks!
My husband, our dog and I will be in Austria in just over three weeks. We are looking for a three day/ 2 night backpacking trip. Any suggestions that are dog friendly? We will have our tent and are happy to camp. We are also ok with longer days...20 to 30 km.
