If you are interested in Renaissance weapons and armor then this should go on your travel list. As the world’s largest preserved historical armory, there really is nothing else like it. There are 4 massive floors holding over 32,000 historical weapons and sets of armor...More

Huge amount of armoury is stored in this museum, my children ages 7 and 8 loved walking round seeing the armour. The museum is quite dark with no information about the armour. But there is lots to see.

amazing armory but might bore people who get tired of seeing stuff that knights used - namely armor!

My first visit to an armoury and it was well worth it. The museum houses armouries, guns, shells cannons and is like a store house/inventory. Entry fee is required but it is well worth it

A picturesque small Austrian town/city. Take a walk up the hill to the old fort which gives you a panoramic view of the area. They even hold concerts up there which would be grand. The Armory is brilliant although don't turn up on Monday expecting...More

vienna to Graz to Semmering and then on to Achenkirch (2 Replies)
Have two weeks holiday in Austria Booked accommadation firstly in Vienna and Achenkirch. Need to be in Achenkirch by 12th March. I would like to travel to Graz thought the Landeszeughaus could be interesting. I have read about the Seeming Pass by train so would like to include this if possible Not sure how to get there relying on trains or bus. I plan to visit Salzburg on a trip from Achenkirch any ideas would be appreciated.

All trains between Vienna and Graz pass the Semmering Area running along the track designed by the famous Austrian engineer Carl RItter von Ghega. Graz is a beautiful city which is definitely worth to be visited. Getting from Graz to Achenkirch will take longer and involves at least one transfer from rail to bus (if you can't arrange being picked up at the train station in "Jenbach"). There is one direct Intercity train from Graz to Innsbruck that leaves Graz Main Station at 13:38 hours and...More

Graz to Hallstatt area (1 Replies)
Will be traveling from Rechnitz to Graz to spend some time at the Landeszeughaus and then go the Hallstatt area to spend 2 nights. How much time should I allow for my husband at the museum? I was actually thinking about staying at Obertraun at the Hotel Haus am See. Anything you can tell me about this hotel and is it possible to walk from there to Hallstatt? Any suggestions as to "must see" attractions in the Salzkammergut area? Is there some place more central that I should consider staying...More

You can also take the ferry into Hallstatt. Walking seems to be a little bit too far - except if you see it as a little hike. Take the ferry! Bad Ischl basically is a centrally-located place in the area but we have already discussed this issue. If coming from the South - what is the case in your situation - then you would necessarily pass the Hallstatt/Obertraun Area. On the other side I do not really see a problem if some "wastes" mileage in order to be accommodated strategically well. The...More

Graz to Vienna scenic route? (6 Replies)
We will finish our vacation in Austria with a stay in Graz. We will hike the Barenschutzklamm one day, then see the Landeszeughaus museum the following day before leaving town - probably around noon. We have to turn in the rental car at Vienna airport by 6pm. Rather than hop on the A2, what would be a more scenic alternative? I see a route that goes near Neuseidler See, would that be a nice drive without taking more than 4-5 hours?

Response fromMichael S|
I would partly stick to expressways, but make a detour via Bruck an der Mur using A9 + S35 + S6 (Semmering Expressway) + back to A2 which is a scenic route either. At Wiener Neustadt Interchange leave A2 and continue to Eisenstadt and Neusiedlersee. The area around Neusiedlersee is basically very beautiful, but rather because of the vineyards and not because of the lake. Drive Northbound to Parndorf and enter A4 directly to Vienna Airport.
