3-4 Days in Vienna, July 2010

by ramot418

I am starting to plan a trip to Vienna and have a few initial questions:

1. I get the impression that there are two types of cards which can be used for unlimited (72-hour)use on public transport (buses, metro, trams): The Vienna Card (18.50 Euro) and a Vienna transportation card (13.50 Euro). The only difference I can see between them is that the former offers discounts at some attractions and, as such, I would tend to buy the 13.50 Euro card. Comments?

2. From what I see, the best value to go from the airport to the city centre is the regular train (not the CAT rapid transport). Does the transportation card above include this train ride? If not, is there any public transport from the airport included in the card?

3. Do public telephones allow one to receive calls and, if yes, is the phone number of each phone displayed on it?

4. I would like to stay about 3 nights in Vienna. My wife and I do not care for anything except the basics: clean and quiet, private toilet & shower, room safe and, if possible, a small fridge. Central location is preferable, but not necessary if on a metro line. If there is such a thing as a family-run Zimmer Frei available, that would be fine as well. Any suggestions?

5. Any special events in Vienna during mid-July?

I thank you very much.

you are correct about using the regular train and not the CAT.

if you are staying in center city as we did, you will actually walk most everywhere. we certainly did not see all the worthy sites in vienna some of which presumably require public transit but in our four days we used the metro only once for the schonnbrun palace.

Thanks nicolaitan. I presume Vienna is like Prague where almost everything is in the centre. In Prague we indeed did not need the equivalent card and, if we do stay right in the middle of Vienna, we would definitely consider not buying the card. However, I prefer not to limit myself to accommodation in the centre of town only. If I find something I want further out, I would prefer to take it and use the metro.

3.: Yes, at least some of them do. Few even have broadband internet access.

4.: Pension Kraml, Brauergasse 5, 1060 Wien. A tram (Esterhazygasse) is close and runs frequently.

5.: Musikfilm Festival: http://www.wien.info/en/music-stage-shows/city-of-music/musicfilm-festival?set_language=en

Er ... are you positive?
I thought those telephone cells that sport a symbol with a vibrating receiver (or similar can't recall exactly) can receive calls?

Re: 3-4 Days in Vienna, July 2010

by ramot418

Easy to test. Just call one from your cell phone while standing beside it and see what happens. :)
Or send me the number of a public phone in Vienna and I'll call from here. Should be 'entertaining'. :)

2. The transportation-cards are INside of zone100 only, that is the centre of Vienna. In order to get to the airport you need to buy 1 extra ticket of 1,80 € in addition to the zone100-ticket.
Pension Dr. Geissler is in the very centre, at Schwedenplatz:
everything is walkable from there except Schoenbrunn.

Travel Tips for Vienna

Cheap International Phone Calls & Internet

by Mikebb

We were amazed at how cheap international phone calls home to Australia were from a large Internet Cafe and International Phone Centre 100 metres from where we were staying. It had 2 floors of computers, at least 100 computers, plus 2 international phone booths. On the Sunday morning we rang home and spoke for 4 or 5 minutes the cost being 65 cents. We made regular calls during our week's stay and they were always less than one Euro. It was cheaper to use their phone than the phone card we had purchased in Australia.I think they have at least 3 other cafes in Vienna, sorry I forgot the name.

The address is: corner of Theobaldgasse and Windmuhl gasse just 20 metres from Mariahilfer Strasse, very close to the Museum Quarter. Mariahilfer Strasse is the main upmarket shopping street.

MuseumLand: Museum Quarter

by Ekaterinburg

Vienna's Museum Quartier certainly deserves a general tip because a visit there is so easy and even if you never visit a museum you will have got a feeling for the vibrant arts and cultural life of Vienna. The quarter is situated behind the Ringsrasse around buildings which were the former stables of the hapsburg horses. If you cut through Mariateresenplatz with the giant Kunsthistoriche Museum on one side and the Natural History Museum on the other you only have to cross the road to come to Museumplatz. You enter under an arch and to your left and right is Electric Avenue a really funky, modern shopping and cafe area. Coming through the arch the Leopold museum is on your left, MUMOK ( the modern art museum) is on your right and Kunsthalle Wien is straight ahead of you. The open space in front is always buzzing with activity - music, impromptu performances, etc. When I was there they had winter festivities and a narrow ice-rink for some off-the wall ice-based games. These buildings are essentially galleries, not museums and an hour or so spent in any one of them certainly does not involve any poring over detailed or boring exhibits. Combined tickets areavailabe for Leopold and MUMOK.
The website is www.mqw.at. Check it for details of prices, opening hours, temporary exhibitions etc.

Cafe Sacher...

by coceng

Another photo of me & Joe !
Cafe Sacher has its own history because many famous people have come here to sample Sacher Torte ! It is a cake with a torrid history; The story is like this :
2 'wars' were fought between Hotel Sacher & Cafe Demel in 1938 & 1953, over the origin of the cake !
The vital question was :
Should The Apricot Jam be Put Directly Under The Icing Or In The Middle Of The Cake ?!
So, you have to go there to answer the question, right !? Ha! Ha ! Ha !

12th district - Meidling

by pakistanibrain

The Meidlinger Bezirksmuseum shows some very interesting pieces of Austria's royal history.

Meidling (that's how the 12th district is called) is a junction between the centre of Vienna and the noble districts in Western Vienna. Meidling railway station is a major connecting point for several fast trains, trams and busses.

Cafe Central

by croisbeauty

Like they say "be Roman in Rome", so don't miss to visit one of numerous cafes in Vienna among which Cafe Central, situated in Herrengasse, is probably the most famous. The traditional Viennese Kaffeehaus share a common iconography of marble-topped tables and booths and bentwood chairs.
Since the turn of the 19th century, Cafe Central is Vienna's principal intellectual hangout. Today, however, the clientele is almost exclusively tourists or visitors to the town, admiring pseudo-Gothic decorations inside the cafe.
