    Internet Access/info Part 2

    by wiener_nougat Written Jun 23, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: As already mentioned there is Internet Access available in Bad Ischl. The last time I was there it was located in the local Post Office. You have to pay some kind of Card with a certain amount and then you can feel free to go there whenever they have opened.
    Although it's not the most comfortable place, because you sit on Barstools. Also no Coffee or any other drinks available. ;(

    I can keep you informed, if there are any other places with internet access available.

    Dr. Franz von Wirer

    by acemj Updated May 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The first person to use the salt baths in the area for medicinal purposes was Dr. Josef Götz. When he told Dr. Franz von Wirer about his work, the good doctor made the town famous by turning some of his famous patients onto this new miracle in medicine. You see, von Wirer was a professor at the Vienna Medical School and was the personal doctor for Emperor Franz I.

    Favorite thing: Yep, the Traun River runs along the southern edge of town and is highlighted by a beautiful street called the Esplanade on its northern edge. This street is lined with beautiful villas and other important buildings.

    Internet access/info

    by acemj Updated May 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Since the main tourist information place was closed (after 12pm on Sundays) I ended up at this alternative place that specializes in package-type tours throughout the Salzkammergut region. I spoke with the person working here briefly and then decided to use the computer. The internet access was more expensive here than in most places, so I kept it brief.

    Tourist info

    by acemj Updated May 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The main tourist information place is just a short walk to the west from the train station on Bahnhofstrasse 6. It's open Monday through Friday from 8am to 6pm, Saturday from 9am to 4pm and on Sunday only from 10am to noon. I happened to be here on a Sunday afternoon, so it wasn't open, but I stopped here briefly to escape a short rain shower and was able to enter the first set of doors and grab some free pamphlets before realizing that the interior was locked.
