We have a 15 hour layover this August in Vienna, arriving at 7pm and flying out at 10 am. It is our kids' first/only time in Vienna, so I would love for them to at least walk around or take a night bus to see the lights, but am wondering if it is worth it? We would need a budget-friendly accommodation right near a train stop to minimize our walking to/from a hotel, or alternatively, we could stay near the airport and get into town for the night? I guess I am looking for hotel…
Hey guys was just curious as I bought a really cheap inaurance plan and just recently obtained my visa. I fly out next month but was hoping to recoup the money before my trip. Does anyone know if the embassys continually check to make aure you have coverage? I would never actually use this insurance as its the highest rated and the co-pays etc are outrageous. Although, that's why I got it as it was cheapest available. I just don't know if they could actually do anything since I already have the…
I'm planning my next backpacking adventure through Europe. Last time I briefly passed through Austria on the train and couldn't believe how stunning the vista was so I wanted to visit one day! I'm a 20 yr old female travelling solo, my questions are:
1.) Is it safe for female travelers alone?
2.) Best places to visit for a week or twos trip? I'd like to narrow it to two places really so I'm not trying to do too much! I love nature that's one of the main reasons I'm heading there to see…
I'm going to visit Vienna in June with my wife and 3 year-old daughter for the first time.
I need your suggestions for this travel.
We will arrive at Vienna airport from Amsterdam by Austrian Air at noon.
We will have 1 big suitcase and a baby buggy.
We have not decided any plans in Vienna yet.
What transportation is the best/easiest from the airport to the city center for our case?
Which area is a good place to stay with a child?
Do you have any good places…
My boyfriend and I are hoping to visit some of those spectacular mountain areas in Western Austria.
We'll be arriving from Vienna, on our way meandering towards Amsterdam in beginning of April.
I know there are a lot of fancy ski resorts, and the snow will be starting to melt at lower elevations.
Place we can hike or snowshoe or cross-country ski
(We will take what the weather gives us, we're just hoping for beautiful trails)
A pretty, relaxed place (not an expensive ski resort)
Hi! Just wanted to get some thoughts. I'm going to Prague for a conference and planning to tack on a little holiday. My plan is:
Day 1 - train from Prague to Vienna
Day 2 - in Vienna
Day 3 - ?
Day 4 - ?
Day 5 - ?
Day 6 - train to Paris
As always, I'm torn between trying to cram in as much as possible, and having a proper holiday - I suspect I'll be fairly knackered after the conference.
My question is, should I just stay in Vienna the whole time, relax, sightsee, maybe see a concert etc. Or is…
My brother and I want to do a snowboarding trip to Austria by flying to Munich airport. Which destination should we choose? Trains take over 3h to skiing areas I read. What about shuttles? Any other options than renting a car?
I am an experienced rider, my brother a beginner. We are not after partying. Cheap-mid expensive range should be ok
Thanks for help
PLEASE HELP :) I'm trying to get from Vienna to Ljubljana by train. This is my 1st time in Europe :) So I went to the Austrian Railways website https://www.oebb.at/en, typed in Wien HBF as my point of origin, Ljubljana as my destination, and all I get is 3 choices and they're all overnight and a minimum of 8 hours.
So then I found another website on Google (Go Euro) http://www.goeuro.com/travel-search2/results/371612104/train?v= and I typed in the same information and I got…
I'm lucky enough to be going to Innsbruck in June, it's a dream of mine to go to a mountain...I have incurable cancer and there are a few things I'd really like to check off my Austria bucket list...
I'll be using public transport and could do a one night stop at the right place if it's a couple of hours to get there...
I'd love to see:
Waterfalls (mobility not great so access on level ground/gondolas would be best)
Natural hot springs
Thanks for any…
