Where to stay in Vienna

I'm thinking about taking a trip to Vienna with my wife this autumn. Looking for recommendations for hotels mainly. I'd like to find somewhere that's got some of that traditional Viennese style and I'm happy to go upmarket if its worth it for how it looks and treats guests. [more inside]

Travelfilter: What's up around Vienna?

We are planning a visit to Vienna this summer in early August, and are looking for some smaller day or weekend trips from there. We are two adults and two kids, 9 and 11. Bilingual French and English, and I speak extremely rusty college German. We've got the Vienna part covered, but what else is nearby? [more inside]

Actual size of Schoenbrunn Palace skip-the-line tour?

A skip-the-line tour with someone who can answer my many questions sounds attractive. If I book for only two persons, though, how many others will be with that same guide?

Things to do with a five year old in Austria

We're planning a trip to Austria in August. We plan to stay around three days each in Vienna, Salzburg, and Innsbruck. We've found based on past trips that things work best if we get an early start to our day, do one big thing that interests everyone, take a coffee break, have a late lunch, then head back to the hotel for some downtime in the afternoon. My daughter and wife aren't huge on extended trips to museums or galleries. All of us enjoy concerts, although they're best if short for the kid. Adventure playgrounds, swimming, and climbing walls rate very highly. Light hiking is great; we'd though about taking a funicular up a mountain, then walking part way down. I'd be grateful for recommendations!

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]

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.
