Went on this narrow guage railway free with the Vienna Pass. Irrespective, it would have been worth paying the fare for this short trip around the parkland. We were in one of the diesel hauled trains and was disappointed when we passed a steam hauled...More

Nothing much to see on this little train ride that you can't see on your own just by walking around and looking at trees and lawns in the park. If your kids bug you to take the train ride and you're with another adult, see...More

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and
