Hi Friends,
I will be reaching Vienna Airport at aroound 6 am on 10th july and want to catch a train(direct if possible) to Venice. I am carrying a global saver pass with me. Can you suggest what will be the best way to go about it. This is my first time to this part of Europe. Thanks a lot.

Re: how to catch the train to venice

Thanks friends for all the help. I have a few more questions.

1. I am carrying a global saver pass. Will that pass be valid on these day time train-bus combinations or I have to buy a ticket for the bus from villach to venice. Is reserveration a must and will I have to pay extra for that.

2. How much time does it take to reach Wien Meilding from the airport and what is the best means of transport.

3. Are there any paid facilities to get ready after the long flight and before taking the train journey. Or should I just checkin to a hotel for a few hours if I am too tired before taking up the train.

regards
Rohit

The train/bus to Venice should be included in your ticket but you need a reservation (€ 3?).
Airportbus runs every 20 minutes, takes 30 minutes.

With train (S7 or CAT) you have to change in Wien Mitte.
Wien Meidling is a lokal trainstation witch serves as a temporary replacement for Wien Suedbahnhof, not to many services there or nearby. At the airport is a NH Hotel.

I never heared of a global saver pass,but I can imagine that only ordinary trains and buses by ÖBB, like the one that is going Villach-Venezia will be included in it !
CAT and Airportbuses will not be included, but of course the S-bahn that will take you from the airport to Meidling, thats just like an ordinary train of ÖBB !

Budget eating - restaurants and cafes

by verliebtinwien

There are many reasonably priced restaurants in Vienna but obviously most restaurants in the tourist parts are not. Apart from Zum Bettelstudent in Johannesgasse in 1st district the best you can do if you are on a budget is to avoid 1st district, the Prater area and Schönbrunn area in general and any too poshy-looking restaurant. You are still left with plenty of options, for example at the so-called Campus in 9th district (old hospital area), even some of the restaurants in Museumsquartier (7th district, next to 1st district) are reasonably priced. And of course, at the food market Naschmarkt (near 1st district, between 6th and 4th district) there are myriads of great places, however, not all are cheap. A general tip is to check out "Tagesmenü", a two-course meal for approx 6-7 euros (drinks not included).

The Centimeter restaurants, 7 in Vienna, offer value for money too. Click at Wienplan on their website for locations: http://www.centimeter.at/ The one in 4th district, Margaretenstrasse/Schleifmühlgasse, is just short walk away from other typical must-sees like Karlskirche and Naschmarkt.

Another place worth a visit is actually Cafe Eiles (Josefstädterstrasse in 8th district, close to 1st district, tram J or underground U2 stop Rathaus), one of the good old traditional coffeehouses. They normally have schnitzel for 7 or 8 euros - and they are very good. In addition you get the unbeatable Viennese coffee house ambiente.

A short walk from Cafe Eiles, in Florianigasse, there are two cafes with seriously cheap and good food: Tunel (actually a jazz cafe) and Cafe Merkur: http://www.tunnel-vienna-live.at/

ALWAYS SOMETHING TO LEARN ALONG THE WAY

by lmkluque

In the USA, There is a word that is considered slang and vulgar. (In fact, VT just requested that I not use it, so I won't) This word is commonly used, but it is not a word for polite society.
.
Imagine the reaction I had reading the PISSOR sign on a building in Vienna! (Michael, 'globetrott,' has just taken the time to kindly informed me that the word on the sign is actually, 'Pissoir,' not 'Pissor' as I thought. Thank you Michael for coming to my aid. Your effort is greatly appreciated!)
.
So, as I was saying--Finding out that Pissoir is a 'proper' term in the elegant city of Vienna, gives the word 'pissoir'(--minus the 'oir') a better status in my mind, but I still can't use it in my own vocabulary, and obviously I can't use it here!

This is Matthias.
Matthias was busy all the times because at that time he was doing his study on becoming a doctor ! Now he's a doctor I think !
Matthias also showed me around Vienna, I think we passed this gallery...

Good Luck Pigs

by von.otter

Austrians believe that pigs bring good luck. The pig has long been a significant animal, especially at the end of the year, as a symbol of abundance, because all parts of the pig can be eaten.

At New Year’s pigs of all sorts — stuffed, ceramic, glass, etc. — are exchanged as a good luck symbol.

In some restaurants on New Year’s Eve a pig is let loose within the establishment; guests try to touch the animal for good luck as it runs around.
