Don't get me wrong, the trip itself is amazing. But were put in the carriage with very uncomfortable chairs. All the other carriages had comfy sofa-type chairs, but we had uncomfortable dining-style chairs. With my back issues, this was unsuitable. Otherwise an enjoyable trip.

Another touch of luxury on our APT river cruise that took us from Passau to Salzburg and back to Linz in carriages fit for an emperor with excellent refreshments, service, comfort and quality operatic entertainment on the return journey. What a wonderful day.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and
