places to go by car

Hi,

i know U-bahns are enough for inner city of vienna. But I will rent a car also. Which places do you prefer me to visit outer side of vienna ? (cafes, museums, nice places to see etc.)

thanks.

You don't need a car at all in Vienna. Everything is so easy to reach with public transportation. A car will be nothing but a pain in the neck for your whole visit.

A car is an unnecessary expense when visiting Vienna. As Cherries mentioned, everything is reachable by the excellent public transportation system.

Even places on the countryside can often easily be reached by public transport (a popular example in the nice season Wachau valley or Lake district near Salzburg). Only if you were planning a multi-day outing to the countryside combining several destinations, a car would be helpful. And even then I'd only rent it for those days you are actually planning to use it outside of Vienna. As mentioned above, in Vienna it's really of no use (problem of parking).

Sorry tuldila, I didn't realize you were coming in February. Wachau might not be so great then and the popular boat doesn't run.
