Day Trip from Vienna

I'll be in Vienna in May on business, but we will be free for one day and want to get out of the city.

Any ideas on a day trip? I'll need to be back in Vienna by 6PM.

1. Re: Day Trip from Vienna

Several different alternatives.

I always recommend the inclusive tour Melk Abbey- boat down the Danube to Krems - back to Vienna..

Price 39+ euros

I think that you can still be back by 6.

If not numerous other boat tours on the Danube.


Also interesting is a trip to the former Roman settlement of Carnuntum. Some ruins remain, An excelent museum also.

Area can be reached by train.- better by car. Less than one hour from Vienna.

Few realize that the Danube was the frontier of the Roman Empire. Many forts were built over time.

Many towns grew- up aronud these forts and still exist today.
