villach to venice?

by ruth-t

i was just wondering if anyone can give me any details of how to plan a day trip from villach austria to venice?

you have direct trains villach-venice

Re: villach to venice?

by Gelli

It's a bit early to plan for april yet as schedules are liable to change. There are direct trains from Villach to Veniezia, but unfortunately, they aren't really that helpful for a day trip. At the moment there's one just before 2pm, but that's no use for a day trip. The only other direct services are night trains through from Vienna to Italy where you can either arrive in Venice at 3.20 am or leave Villach at 4.20am, neither of which is neccessarilly that helpful....

Other than that, you will have to change, sometimes 2 or 3 times, often with long waits and the journey time will be more than double the day time of 2hr 40 - Upto 8hours in cases. This is due to having to take a tortuose route (via Slovenia) - and you still have to get back to Villach.

Wait for the new timetables to come out before deciding, but if you aren't prepared for a very early start, Coach may be you best bet (sorry, I can't help with that) or even look into car hire.

HI and Shalom:
If you can take an extra day and drive by way of either Slovenia south to Trieste and then to Venice, or Austria west to Innsbruck and then south through the Dolomites of Italy to Venice. Both beautiful routes.
The actual drive from Villach through Slovenia, Trieste and to Vienna, one way should take about 5 hours
You could actually take a shorter route (in kilometers) and go OVER the Mt.Triglav between Kranska Gora and Tolmin, a very spectacular route, it will take actually a longer time than going to Ljubljana then west to Trieste, but well worth it.
Check it out.

In Villach there are travel agents who organize trips to Venice. I think they may be enjoyable only if you speak or at least understand German.
I don't know exactly which agencies have such trips, there are seven in Villach.

Travel Tips for Villach

St.Veit an der Glan

by globetrott

St.Veit an der Glan is an interesting town in the north of Villach and Klagenfurt and it has a great baroque townsquare with an interesting townhall (see it in my main picture and in my 4th photo). You will see also a big part of the medieval townwall there still and for all fans of modern austrian art, there is also a hotel designed by Professor Ernst Fuchs, read more about it in my hoteltips about St.Veit!
A visit to St. Veit can be easily combined with a daytrip including Burg Hochosterwitz and Maria Saal. St. Veit is about 15 km north of Klagenfurt !

Radio-museum in Villach

by globetrott

The Radio-museum in Villach is a part of the car-museum in Villach and you will find a large collection of radios on the upper floor of that museum. According to the webpage of the Fahrzeugmuseum this collection is for sale, so hurry up, if you are interested in this part of our history !

Villach: A Quiet but Lively City

by mydreamquest

"First Impressions"

While on my way to Florence from Salzburg, I found myself at Villach Hauptbahnhof with 50 minutes between train rides so, since I would actually be staying here a few days later, decided to get a feel for this city.

It's calm with friendly people who smiled at me and seemed intimate and at peace. I stopped by for a quick Melange at a coffee shop nearby on Bahnhofstrasse which is a gently downhill winding street that connects to Stadtbruch (state bridge) which leads to Hauptplatz, the center and heart of Villach. The first impression I had was that I felt welcome here, as I headed off to Florence, I thought that Villach would be the perfect break point and rest stop before my later trips back to Salzburg and then on to Venice.

5 days later, I returned to Villach after a long train journey on routes from Florence to Bologna; Bologna to Venice Mestre; and from Venice Mestre to Villach. It was late afternoon. I found a place to eat and then walked from the Hauptplatz to Nikolaigasse to a bar/internet cafe to read the news.

From the walk I noticed a modern building called the Congress Center where they have concerts. Around the Stadtbruch were bars filled with late night goers people watching and enjoying the night over coffee or beers and dinner and dessert. I also went to a phone center/internet cafe over on Italiener Strasse to call home to see how things were.

There's a peaceful air about Villach, and although not perfect, in order and very much serene.

Villach is perhaps the perfect resting spot city to get away from typical foreign tourists and get your traveler's second wind back.

Basic information about Villach:

Population: 57,720 (as of Dec 31, 2001), 7th Most Populated City in Austria.
First reference as town: 1240 A.D.
First City Charter: 1392
First Mayor: 1588
Location: Southeastern Austria about 30 kms from the Slovenia and Italian Borders.
State: Carinthia

"Villach in Detail"

As you can see on this map, the main areas of Villach are divided into four sections with the Drau River snaking thru the middle of it. The green zone in the North is the Hauptbahnhof area where the central train station is, the purple area is the "Congress" area where the Congress Center is; the yellow area or southwest side is the Westbahnhoff area where the secondary train station is, and the orange area is the City Center or "Zentrum."

All of these areas or within 20 minutes walking proximity of each other. Most hotels are located either on Bahnhoff Strasse or Hauptplatz, essentially, the same street which crosses the center of the Drau River.

It is a fun walking town, especially at night where there are couples window shopping and teens either hanging out in the Hauptplatz, older men drinking in bars on Nikolaigasse, or students studying surfing on Italiener Strasse.

I think it would be a charming place to be during Christmas time, though, I imagine it would get fairly cold.

When I was there in late August, the weather was perfect, partly cloudy, not too warm, not too cold humidity at about 50%.

If you note the 3 marks on my map, the inked dot in the center is the Romantik Post Hotel, the ink spot across the Drau on Nikolaigasse is an internet Cafe that charges around 2 Euro for 30 minutes in a smoky bar; and the mark on Italiener Strasse is a place as also an internet cafe where you can make phone calls. It was open as late as 11pm and probably until midnight.

All the shopping is along Hauptplatz and in the orange section. Restaurants are scattered everywhere around the center of this map. Less friendly bars are on Nikolaigasse in the purple area, and for a nice morning walk there are beautiful trees, mountain views and interesting cathedrals and statues all in the orange and southern area.

"Villach at Night"

I needed the calm night of Villach to walk in conversation with my friend to reflect on things. It's a very good city walk around with a friend at night. There are many beautiful night sights in Villach. My favorite was here as I cross the Drau River. As you look East from the Stadt Bruch (State Bridge) you will see the Heiligenkreuz-Kirche brightly lit to the right.

The picture here doesn't capture it is beautifully as how it felt to my eyes. As you continue to walk heading to towards the Hauptbahnhof you will pass St. Nikolai Church with an interesting mini design of the city as how it looked like in the 1600s.

Villach, a town full of warmth. A town of culture, congresses and thermal springs with its history dating back 900 years, a town both modern and romantic, with southern flair. Situated in a region of crystal clear lakes, at the foot of the Villacher Alps, it offers a wide choice of possibilities for holidays and recreation.
Villach’s image is reflected by alternating facades of historical buildings and modern architecture, by elegant town life as well as an easy-going laissez-faire attitude. Bustling hopping scenes, street cafés and gay outdoor events create a mediterranean atmosphere.
Villach’s love of fun and frolic finds its expression in the famous Villach Carnival, the Villach Féte and other cheerful festivities. Well-known far beyond the borders are also the theatrical performances, operas and concerts offered by the “Carinthian Summer” programme, the outdoor “Summertime” events, the Alpen-Adria-Ceramics market and many more venues in town.
Villach offers everything for a holiday all year round! Villach, where the heart is joyful.
