Booking tickets on obb.at  (5 Answers)

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!

Hi,

In August we (a late 20s couple) are traveling from Bratislava to Vienna to Salzburg. Do you think we should take a train or a bus? Also, do you have any recommendations on which train or bus company and if the tickets should be purchased in advance?

Many thanks for your assistance :)

Audio Guides  (1 Answer)

Has anyone used audio guides to navigate through areas of interest in Vienna and Salzburg. There are quite a few apps such as Pocket Guide, Rick Steeves Audio Walk, Gretl Goes Vienna, My Vienna etc. that have some pretty good walks that last about an hour or two.

Would appreciate any reviews I can find. Thanks!

From Seefeld in Tirol to Bratislava  (5 Answers)

I'll be in Seefeld in Tirol in September and will be heading to Bratislava by train. I bought one of those Eurorail single country pass just for Austria.
1) Can I buy the section from Vienna to Bratislava on the train? Or from the ticket seller at Seefeld?
2) Anybody has any idea how much it would cost?
3) Also is it better to take a bus instead of a train to Bratislava from Vienna in terms of scenery?
4) I guess I can cover Bratislava in a day or two so does anyone have any good suggestions for exploring deeper into Slovakia using Bratislava as a base?
5) Oh yes, how do you pronounce the name of the train station at Bratislava? can't seem to get my tongue around it

Appreciate whatever suggestions

Keep safe

Jocelyn

9 Days in Austria

Hey everyone! We're a family of five adults planning a trip to Austria in June this year. This will actually be our first driving holiday in Europe so we're rather excited about it!

So far, we've really liked this itinerary suggested on Frommers () and are looking to use this as a base to build our own. Would love to hear your thoughts about what we simply must do, what we could skip.. and pretty much anything else really - the roads, the food, the car hire compancy, the villages, the hotels/airbnbs and even any lesser known experiences that you recommend.

We'll be flying in from India, so I think flying into Vienna is probably our most economical option. Oh and we take our food very seriously - i.e. we prefer local cuisine on travel and love experimenting. So if you have any local delicacies or restaurant suggestions, we'd love to hear about them

Thank you so much in advance for taking the time out to get back to me :)

What is the most scenic drive, with the best views, best villages and the best way to experience the Tirol life? I would like to see glaciers, the highest mountains and be able to hike some.

Vignette in Austria  (9 Answers)

Hi, my husband and I will be driving through Austria from Croatia on our way to Prague in June. We will be in Austria for about 24 hours and will be driving on the motorways. What will be the best, quickest, easiest way to purchase a Vignette?

Motorhome on Grossglockner Alpine Road and itinerary help  (4 Answers)

We are spending 6 months in Europe in a motorhome.
This is our 3rd trip and we are planning on going to Eastern Europe from Calais mid April and covering some areas in Europe that we have not seen yet.

Our rough plan is as follows:
Netherlands 10 days
Northern part of Germany 15 days
Poland 18 days
Czech Republic 15 days
Austria 15 days
Hungary 15 days
Croatia 30 days
Slovenia 20 days
back to Calais 20 days

We are planning on spending a week travelling from Salzburg to Vienna mid June then heading to Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia and then possibly back through Austria again at the beginning of September.

I have a few questions
1. Would it be better to do the GGS in mid June or beginning of September?
2. Where does the GGS start and finish?
3. Can you camp overnight on GGS?
3. How would we combine this with our planned route so we aren't doubling back?
Austrian route is
Hallstatt, Strobl, St. Wolfgang, Bad Ischl, Ebensee, Gmunden, then following the Danube from Melk to Vienna
Could also do this in the reverse direction if it doesn't work coming from Czech Rep.

Thanks in advance

Summer Holiday  (7 Answers)

Morning,

Planning a trip to Austria in July. Planning at stage 0.

7-10 days maybe.

We're a family of four, travelling from Bristol with a 3 year old and a 9 month old.

We're looking for a location that is really picturesque: dramatic mountains, clear water, green fields etc. We're ordinarily a beach holiday family so looking for something really different aesthetically.

We'd like a hotel/b&b, somewhere with a good range of amenities, eateries etc but without being too big a town or city.

Activities wise we'd like to do some wholesome pottering with the kids, then a couple of day trips would be amazing, we love trains or would hire a car for an explore.

We're being a bit budget conscious too.

Really appreciate any suggestions. I'm sure someone knows of the perfect spot!

Thanks

Ginzling For The Last Week In April?  (6 Answers)

Planning a surprise trip to Austria for my wife and I. We're both outdoor enthusiasts, prefer small towns to large cities, prefer camping and small guesthouses to resorts, and like to spend our vacations based in one locale so as not to waste half of our time in transit.

While researching, I happened upon the village of Ginzling. My questions are:

1) Is this an appropriate destination for the last weekend in April with respect to our objectives of

day hiking, short day-trip drives, general relaxation in the outdoors.

2) Would it be practical to rent a car at the airport in Salzburg, then drive to Ginzling?

3) Any suggestions for accommodations? When we're not camping, we prefer small inns, B&B's,

etc.

Thanks,

Jason

Travel between towns  (4 Answers)

Hello Everyone,
Thanks for your answers to my previous questions on Austria. We are now just a couple of weeks away from our much awaited trip and am looking for some travel advice. Kindly bear with me as my German isn't too great and I could not understand some of the words even in the English version of the OEBB.AT site.

1. How to I travel from Salzburg to Kaprun
2. Kaprun to Halstatt
3. Halstatt to Vienna

We don't mind train or bus, however, we are looking for the most convenient way as we are travelling with a 14-month old.

Do I need to pre-book or get the tickets at the stations? Which is quicker? Is it cheaper booking online?

Many thanks for your time and assistance; this is one of the best travel advice groups I have come across.

Cheers
Viv

Danube Cruise or city tour  (3 Answers)

Hi everybody The questions I have are these We have excursions available for Vienna and Salzburg in Austria. I am torn between the cruise and the independent tours. Which would be the most economical? If I choose tours, should I do the city tours for these, or take off on my own? I reckon a European River Cruise (Danube - found it here ) is the best option because we won't have to pack up and move every couple of days and it doesn't require as much foreign travel knowledge, but they are SO expensive. We want to spend some time in Budapest, Vienna and Germany. Day or night cruise better? I know someone out there has experienced both options and I would love to hear your perspective. Thank you!!

Austrian vignette  (13 Answers)

Hallo again. I read that once you get to Austria in order to use the autobahn you should buy a vignette. We will enter the country on our way to Konstanz and we will soon exit in order to enter Switzerland. Pls tell me:
1. Are there borders to get to Switzerland either from Austria or from Germany?
2. Can we buy the Swiss vignette at the borders and where from exactly?
3. Since we will be using the swiss roads alot in the following days of our trip we can't avoid the 40 euros of the vignette. But do you think we could avoid the austrian? Or perhaps, since there will be inavoidable checking at the boarders while exiting the country, we must have it? Thank you.
