Vienna a la carte?? (2 Replies)
Hi Everyone! We are 4 adults, traveling to Vienna from Nov. 26 morning - Nov. 29 evening. Do you recommend the Vienna Card? Or simply buy a 72-hour transportation ticket? Also, we are staying at the Stadtnest B&B (Stumpergasse 29). Is it better to get a pre-booked taxi... or use the Vienna card for a discounted rate on the Airport? I know it's only a few extra Euros each... but for some reason, I'm stressing over such a small decision. Help!! :) What do you think? THANKS! Sara

Hi Sara The Vienna Card/72 hour card debate has been aired a few times on here. Type "Vienna Card" in the search box above. It basically depends on how many museums you want to visit. I would actually buy two 8-day tickets instead of 72 hour cards. They would allow four of you to travel for two days on each ticket (you stamp one strip for each person at the start of each day - each ticket having 8 strips) covering your four days. They cost €27.20 each ticket giving each of you four days...More

I am going to be with a group of 6 adults and we wanted to get a private driver to take us there with stops along the way. Can anyone recommend a group to use? I have seen references to Viator and "Vienna a la Carte" - does anyone know about them? Also, where would you recommend touring along the way? Thank you!

Viator is just a booking agency arranging sightseeing in cities worldwide. Vienna a la Carte, Vienna Explorer and several others are local companies who provide tours. You will almost always be better off booking with them directly. Bear in mind that a private transfer will be expensive, and will include the cost of driver/ guide and vehicle for the day, as well as the cost of his return trip to Vienna. It's a long road trip so opportunities for sightseeing stops on the way will be limited...More

This weekend (April 1st) will bring temperatures around 75/22 – and spring is mixing with pre-Easter season – the re-awakening/re-birth of nature! Looks like this two weeks April 1st-16th could be perfect! In Vienna, there are Easter-Markets, not as extensive as our X-mas markets but nice nevertheless – lots of decorated eggs (that’s the Eastern European influence), Easter Bunnies etc. – Look for the markets at Schoenbrunn, Am Hof and the best of all, Freyung!!! Some of the open-air...More
