Train vs. Car Villach to Salzburg  (4 Answers)

We are traveling this June from Venice to Salzburg and plan to take the bus to Villach. Not sure if we should take the connecting train onto Salzburg or rent a car and drive it. My husband likes to drive and wouldn't mind.
Is it easy to pick up rental in Villach? And is the drive scenic and pleasant or are there winding roads?
I am thinking of Bus Venice to Villach, have lunch in Villach, then drive onto Salzburg. I don't know if it is not worth it to drag out the journey, and we should just jump on the train and get to Salzburg in 2.5 hours.
Advice is greatly appreciated!!!

Busbahnhof  (2 Answers)

We will be in the Villach Hbf this Sunday, March 10th. Our train comes in at 10:46 and then we have to find the Villach Busbahnhof and get on a Bus 833 that leaves at 10:56. I'm worried that 10 minutes won't be enough to find the bus station and get on Bus 833. Does anyone know where the bus station is in comparison to the train station? Thanks!

Changing trains at Villach  (5 Answers)


I'm planning on catching the traing from Munich to Zagreb in May. This involves changing trains at Villach with 9 minutes for the transfer. I'll be travelling with my husband 2 year old son and we'll have a fair bit of luggage! Is it a big or confusing station? Is 9 minutes enough time for a transfer?

Thanks in advance for any advice,

Looking for Accomodation

I am living in Finland. I am coming to Villach and will be there from 24th July to 10th August or even more if possible. I am coming there to learn the Carinthian culture and their language. I chose that period because i know a fantastic cultural festival called "Villacher Kirchtag" is going to happen.
I am looking for any family-based accomodation so that i can learn their culture and practice my German speaking with them. I can even pay as needed or help in any kind of their basic works. Does anyone have any idea? Please give me your valuable suggestion.

Train and bus connections  (1 Answer)

I am travelling between Vienna and Ljubljana by train and I have a very short connection time to change trains at Villach--13 minutes only. Can this connection be made in so short a time? What is the usual distance between connecting trains? We arrive on train #539 at 7:44 PM and then are to connect to #315 departing at 7:57. If we miss this train we have to look at perhaps taking a bus from Villach. Can you provide me a web site that could advise the bus schedules for that route. Your help very much appreciated.

Villach-Trieste  (4 Answers)

Can someone advise on the best way to get to Trieste from Villach? We would be dropping our rental car in Villach and picking one up in Italy. Better suggestions welcome. Our ultimate goal is Rome but the drop off cost (from p/u in Frankfurt to drop off in Rome) was an extra 1300 Euros. Car rental agency gave much better prices for leaving car in Austria or Switzerland and then renting again in Italy. Lugano d/o is also an idea.

Hope weather in your area is better than in Canada this spring.

Travel Costs  (1 Answer)

Hi again. Just wondering if anyone can guide me to a website (in English if possible) that would show the train costs from Innsbruck to Villach and from Villach to Ljubljana. I can find the times from the German rail site, but not the costs. I'm just trying to budget for an upcoming trip so if someone even has a fair idea of the costs, that would work as well. Just looking for second class travel. Thanks a ton. Allan
