    Definitely pack warm. We were there in mid September and I don't think we ever slid out of our jackets. I will admit we are sun loving Australians but it was cold and overcast most of the time.

    Salzburg What to Pack

    Though wheeled luggage has taken over, I still find a backpack is more handy, especially when trying to make train connections. Steps are more easily taken sans wheels and you will find there are many times when there just isn't an elevator or the escalator is only going in the opposite direction from the way you're trying to go! Comfortable shoes...

    Innsbruck What to Pack

Basically you should be prepared for cold and warm weather. If the sun comes out, the days may be warm, although evenings are still rather chilly. If the...

I bought all my film (12 rolls of APS and standard 35mm) at home before I went to Austria. Here it's about 9 Euro for a roll of 36. In Austria I ran out of films so had to buy some more. I...
