I am going to Vienna soon to shoot photos and I am interested in shooting some skyline images of the Austrian capital. On internet I found this beautiful image but I was not able to discover where was it taken from. Anyone from Vienna who can help me please? Any clue?
I'm planning a relaxing holiday around June/July and have narrowed it down to German speaking Europe, probably Austria. Do you have a few specific recommendations?
But first, here's what "Perfect" means to me:
--A small town or "village", less than 10,000 population
--On a lake or river
--Hills, mountains nearby
--Good bakeries, simple cafes
--A relatively quiet town with some remaining industry or livelihood beyond 100% tourism focused
What I hope to do…
My partner and I are planning a 2 week self guided bike trip (and sometimes a gentle hike)of the Salzburgerland lakes, late June/early July starting at or near Wolgansee (where we are staying).
We cycle regularly but in Austria , we are only interested in a moderate ride; its aholiday after all:-)
Can you please recommend a bicycle hire in this region .
Also, any recommendations for budget accommodation (inns or cabins) in the Salzburgerland lakes area;Wolfgansee, Bad Aussee, Bad Ischl…
Does anyone have advice for two 20 year old inexperienced female hikers on where to go to find some picturesque views?
My friend last year based herself in Vienna and had a trip to the alps in Salzburg and her pictures were amazing.
Does this sound like a good plan? Should we go to anywhere specific? If we base ourselves in Vienna what would be the best option?
Thank you in advance.
My wife and I will be traveling to Tirol in mid October. We are in our late 20s and we enjoy picturesque towns, food and culture. We do not ski and we hope to use public transport.
1) Is October a good time to visit Tirol?
2) Can you suggest one or two bases from where we can easily access public transport.
3) Which are some of the beautiful alpine towns and villages that offer a good mountain scenery?
Does anybody have recommendations for a company hiring out small campervans/ motorhomes from Salzburg?
Also, any recommendations for campgrounds by rivers, lakes or alpine scenic surrounds around Werfen, Innsbruck, Dolomites, Slovenia (also possibly Czech republic)?
My partner and I want to hire a small campervan from Salzburg June 29th to July 25st to travel and stay in campgrounds .
We are considering a campervan but prefer a smaller vehicle if possible.
If we cant find a smaller motorhome we…
I've been to Vienna once before and didn't really leave the Innere Stadt apart from a visit to Schönbrunn and this was really a pity. I did some of the typical things like Stephansdom and the Moazarthaus but this time I'd like to see some "hidden gems" if there are any :P. And by this I mean maybe there are some nice parts of the city you could recommend other than the Innere Stadt or the Mariahilf area, some nice restaurants anywhere in the city or even some touristy things that one may not…
I will want to go from Vienna to Brateslava I think by train, can I go city centr to city centre or is the bus better?
What station will I need in Vienna, and how much will it be if I pay on the day?
On a recent trip to Vienna, my wife and I bought subway tickets at the entrance machine before entering the subway. We had trouble understanding the instructions on the machine; there was no ticket booth; there were no officials nearby to ask questions, only people rushing by we couldn’t ask for help.
We purchased a combined ticket for us both. Then, on the train, a subway policeman showed us his identification and checked our ticket.
We were told that we had purchased the wrong ticket. He had…
I'm hoping that others with logistical capabilities and some knowledge of Austria can help me out, please. I am planning two weeks in Austria and Czech Republic in September. I'd like to visit Vienna, and I would especially like to visit Mauthausen concentration camp on one day. In Czech Republic, I'd like to spend a night or two in Cesky Krumlov and the rest of my time in Prague.
Just from looking at the map, a logical route would seem to be: Vienna--Mauthausen--Cesky Krumlov--Prague…
