Yes, we’ll have a day trip on Saturday (21 April) to the Wachau region, one  of the most beautiful stretches of the Danube, just an hour west from Vienna.  The trip starts with a visit to the Melk Abbey, and continues with a boat ride downstream to the medieval castle of Dürnstein.    More details here.

Quite a few people are interested in a day trip to Salzburg.  This one is not set up yet, but we’re working on it.  Bear in mind that it takes about 2:20 hours by train to reach the birthplace of Mozart, so it will be a long day trip – but totally doable.  Stay tuned.

Some people showed interest in a train journey on the world’s first mountain railway, the Semmeringbahn, which is an easy day trip from Vienna.   Since this involves just sitting on the train and watching the scenery, there will be no organised tours.  We’ll provide all the necessary info on how to get your tickets well in advance.
