What's a good day/half-day trip to the north-western Wienerwald?

I'm in Vienna for the week, the weather's great, and I've been to all the museums before, so I was thinking it was high time for a hike in the Vienna woods. Can anyone with first-hand experience of that area recommend a particular hike or day trip? I've done a little Googling but I'm looking to supplement it with up-to-date personal advice. [more inside]

Neighborhood for short stay in Vienna with small child?

Hi, my family is spending a long weekend in vienna visiting a friend, and wondering where to stay. We want to be central, within easy reach of my friend (grosse schiffgasse) and in a walkable area with some restaurants and playgrounds to keep our two year old fed and entertained, and so we can stay out when he is asleep in the stroller. i don't know the city at all. any suggestions? There are place right there where my friend is staying, but it did not seem like the best choice, perhaps i am wrong. thanks [more inside]

What's the best way to live in Vienna for 6-9 months?

My SO will be doing research in Vienna from September-June 2016, and we've decided our child will stay in Vienna as well, and I'm thinking about joining them. I have a good job in the US that I can not take with me, but I might be able to cobble together enough freelancing work (I'm a programmer) so that it's not a complete financial bloodbath. What should I look out for in terms of laws about taxes and working in the EU/Austria? (nb: US citizen) [more inside]

Ein Frohes Neues Jahr in Vienna?

What should I do and see (and eat!!) in Vienna? I'm here through next Monday 5 January, and would especially appreciate seasonal suggestions. (There are some great previous asks which have some great suggestions, but not much that focuses on the holiday season.) Vielen Dank!

I have to move to Austria with cats

I need to move to Austria to take care of my Mum. I am planning on going June/July next year. I have 3 cats which I do not want to live without. Is there a specific agency I go through to get them over there? It is a permanent move. Also, can anyone suggest a good, not terribly expensive, overseas moving service? Any answers will be greatly appreciated.

East Side

Which ski resorts in Eastern Austria would one recommend? It seems the majority of recommended Austrian ski resorts are on the Western side of the country. However, we're traveling by car from Budapest, and in our wish to keep the drive under four hours, wish to stick with Eastern Austria. Flying is not an option. Also, with English-instruction on learning how to snowboard would be a plus. One of us is very well versed with skiing resources in France, but when it comes to Austria we are clueless! [more inside]
