first trip to European country, need your advice

Hi we are from Asia and we (two girls) are going to our first trip to Europe in mid Oct. Need your advices:

anyone knows any hotel/pension near Sudhahnhof train station which is less expensive, safe also easily to get to from international airport. our next stop is Czech then Salzburg, Graz and back to Vienna.

can we see those beautiful Autumn red leaves at that time? and should we bring a heavy coat? we have no idea how cold it is then.

Thank you

The most convenient hotel for you is probably the Hotel Prinz Eugen, Wiedner Gurtel 14.

This hotel ia across the street from the Sudbahnhof ( South Train Station) You will get the train to Czech from there.

It is an easy trip from the airport by the regular transfer bus you will find just outside the Arrival Hall. Several different busses leave from there. Be certain to get the one " Sudbahnhof"

The hotel is across the street from the Sudbahnhof - a 2 minute walk.

It is near to public transport ( Subway U-1 and streetcars D and 18 to make easy connections to many tourist sights,

Nearby is the Palace Belvedere- a place you should see!



It is less expensive than the best hotels and fits your needs as an easy place to get to from the airport and convenient to the trains.

Ask for a room at the back of the hotel with a view of the city.

Good breakfast too!

Look at reviews on trip advisor

You should not need a heavy coat in October- temperatures generally 10-15 grad.

Take a walk in the many parks to look at the leaves, especially around the Ring and at Palace Schonbrunn.
