Train / Tram tickets

Hi experts,

We will be arriving in Vienna, from Prague, on the Saturday the 18th of May and leaving on the 22nd, heading for Salzburg via Melk. We have pre booked train tickets for these trips and have print them out. We plan to buy a train pass whilst we are in Vienna.

When we arrive and before we depart we have to get to and from the rail station and our accommodation by public transport.

Are these trips, to and from accommodation on the local system included as part of our pre purchased tickets (this is permitted in other cities we have visited, if it is one continuous journey) or do we have to buy single journey tickets to get to and from our accommodation.

Thanks

No, that's not allowed! You need to buy a ticket or pass for public transport what can easily be done at the train station.

If you come from some places (eg Bratislava) you can get a ticket including a city transport pass, but these are unusual. Which other cities always include city transport in a national rail ticket? I can't recall arriving at one ever!
