However if you do, or want to see something a little different, then you also have the opportunity of a Bratislava day trip. Bratislava, the capital of neighbouring Slovakia, is close to the Austrian border and only 67km from Vienna. Plus, as both countries are part of the Schengen Zone, there are no pesky border crossings to worry about. Here’s the rundown on all you need to know to have an enjoyable day off on a Bratislava day trip.

There are two departures twice hourly on regional trains, that strangely have different pricing. Trains departing Vienna at ’15 past the hour will cost 16.4€ oneway, while trains at ’38 only cost 10.1€, and I can’t figure out why. Timetables at www.oebb.at/en/. ......
