Beim Ironman Austria Anfang Juli wird der Wörthersee wieder zur Bühne für das größte Triathlon Event Europas. Denn erstens werden Athleten aus aller. Der IRONMAN Austria in Klagenfurt (Österreich) zieht mit seiner wunderschönen Triathlon-Landschaft sowie der treuen und begeisterten Zuschauermenge.
The motorway A10 between Salzburg and Villach is especially notorious. Austria has plenty of connections with all its neighbours daily. Every neighbouring countries even Liechtenstein have trains at least hourly.
Eurocity trains are the next fastest trains available as well as the trains connecting the bigger Austrian cities called Intercity. Vienna is the largest railway hub by day and also night trains from most Central European countries, which travel to many stops across Austria.
Day trains are normally much quicker than night trains. There are a limited number of tickets at this price.
At peak times you need to book in advance. Additional offers are available to all countries in Central Europe, although many cannot be booked online.
In Austria most railways run electrically. Most electric trains get their power from a single-phase AC network. This network uses its own power lines run with 15 kV.
In contrast to normal power lines, these employ a number of conductors that is not divisible by 3 - most power lines for the single phase AC grid of the traction power grid have four conductors.
There are many interesting mountain railways of all types and trains from around central Europe. Details can be found in local sections. Trains are the best and most common form of public transport in Austria.
Comfortable and moderately priced trains connect major cities and many towns; buses serve less significant towns and lakes. Free wifi on Railjets, newer regional trains, on WestBahn trains, and in the main train stations.
On suburban and regional trains there is normally only second class. On ICE, IC and EC trains is second class, which has sufficiently roomy plush seats, and first class which is more private and with roomier leather seats.
The RailJet offers three classes Economy which is akin to second class second class tickets are valid , First Class featuring leather seats and services like a welcome drink, while an upgrade from first to Premium Class gives you even more space and at your seat services.
Base fare is rather expensive, but Austrian Railways offer some interesting discounts. Tickets can be ordered and paid for on the web, including itineraries coving connecting trains and involving narrow-gauge, privately-operated, railways like in the Zillertal valley.
You can also reserve seats for a small fee: Tickets ordered online should be printed and presented to the conductor on board upon request.
They should be printed since they will barcode-scanned and stamped. If you print the ticket, the cancellation will not be possible and the web site warns you about it - and the customer service department will not forgive your mistake.
You do not have to decide right away, however - you can decide later. Also after successful purchase you have a three minute "grace period" where you can undo your purchase, and get full refund - use it to recheck your ticket information.
If you printed the ticket, you must show it to the conductor, along with the photo ID matching the name on the ticket and the card used for purchase.
There are ticket machines at all sizable train stations and on board some regional trains. When boarding regional trains you are required to have purchased a ticket before boarding, if it is possible to buy a ticket via railway office or vending machine at the station you are departing from.
This includes most stations. Ticket machines do not display or print itineraries, and many train stations only display basic timetables.
It is best to find an itinerary on the Austrian Railways website trip planner. Stations also provide pamphlets with detailed timetables, but they assume that you know which line to board to get to your destination and can only be obtained during office hours.
The behind the scenes of ticketing is a bit more complicated: Machines and agents will automatically select these tariffs for you if they are cheaper than the railway tariff.
This means that for instance you might be asked if you have a valid public transportation pass for Vienna, because your railway ticket can then start at the city limits instead of at the station you depart at saving you a couple euros.
Rural or sparsely populated regions in Austria are easier to explore by car as bus services can be infrequent. Renting a car for a couple of days is a good way to go off the beaten track.
Driving in Austria is normally quite pleasant as the country is small and the roads are in good condition, not congested and offer fantastic scenery.
Beware of dangerous drivers, however: Austrians are very law-abiding, but behind a wheel, they seem to make an exception to their considerate attitude.
Comprehensive maps of Austria, specific regions within Austria including city maps , as well as maps from neighbouring countries can be bought at any petrol station.
Traffic regulations are similar to other european countries, but contain some important differences. When travelling from outside Europe, make sure to get known to the common european road signs, as they are not always self-explanatory.
At intersections, when no priority signs or traffic lights are present, vehicles coming from the right always have priority.
This also concerns roundabouts, although in most situations yield signs are posted. Tramways also have priority when coming from the left. Cyclists have to yield to other vehicles when leaving a cycle path.
Traffic lights switch from red to red and yellow before turning green. At the end of the green phase, the green light flashes before turning to yellow.
Right turn on red is not allowed. Standing or parking is not allowed within 5 metres in front of a crosswalk or intersection, at no standing or parking signs or when a solid yellow line is present next to the curb.
Dashed yellow lines permit standing for 10 minutes, but prohibit parking, as well as yellow zig-zag markings or no parking signs. Although often ignored, a minimum of two lanes have to stay free from parking, exept one way roads or when road markings permit parking.
Also parking on the left side of the road is not allowed on priority roads or on roads with tramways, exept on one way roads. Speed limit signs overrule town limit signs.
At the same time, if a restriction sign is posted on the same pole as a town limit sign, the restriction aplies to the whole town area.
On priority roads U-turns are not allowed exept on intersections controlled with traffic lights or outside town limits. Passing vehicles other than bicycles or motorcycles is not allowed on intersections without traffic lights, exept on priority roads.
As in many European cities, parking in cities is subject to fee on work days. Usually those parking zones are marked by blue lines on the street.
Some cities such as Vienna have area-wide zones not denoted by blue lines. Tickets can be usually bought from kiosks, some cities such as Graz have ticket machines on the street.
A cheap alternative is to park your car a bit outside of the town in parking garages called Park and Ride , which can be found in any bigger city.
If your vehicle is under kg in weight, you have to buy a Vignette toll pass, in advance, which can be purchased at any petrol station or at the border.
The motorway police regularly check for vignetten. From , an electronic version of the vignette can be purchased. When renting a car, check if the toll is already paid.
Some rental companies provide their cars with the vignette , while others do not. What not to do with a Vignette Do not , under any circumstances, share a vignette with another vehicle, as doing so renders the vignette invalid and the sticker is designed to show if it has been invalidated in this manner.
Additional tolls are payable on certain roads, especially mountain passes, which need to be paid in cash. Rules on Autobahnen are very similar to the rules in Germany.
The law requires you to stay on the right lane, unless passing. While cars on the far left lane move to the left shoulder, cars on the other lanes move to the right, also using the emergency shoulder.
High fines apply for blocking emergency vehicles or illegal use of this corridor. The law requires all passengers to wear seat belts at all times.
Children under 14 years of age have to use a child safety seat until they are at least cm approx. Take special care when driving in winter , especially in the mountains and keep in mind that winter lasts from September to May in the higher parts of the Alps and snowfall is in general possible at any time of the year.
Icy roads kill dozens of inexperienced drivers every year. Avoid speeding and driving at night and make sure the car is in a good condition.
Motorway bridges are particularly prone to ice. Winter tires are strongly recommended by Austrian motoring clubs. When there is snowfall, winter tires or snow chains are required by law on some mountain passes, and occasionally also on motorways.
This is indicated by a round traffic sign depicting a white tire or chain on a blue background. It is always a good idea to take a pair of snow chains and a warm blanket in the boot.
Drivers often get stuck in their car for several hours and sometimes suffer from hypothermia. Contrary to popular belief there is no need to rent an off-road vehicle in winter though a 4x4 is helpful.
In fact, small, lightweight cars are better at tackling narrow mountain roads than sluggish off-road vehicles. Virtually all roads in Austria open to the public are either covered in tarmac or at the least even surfaced.
The problems normally encountered are ice and steepness, not unevenness. When driving downhill the only remedy against sliding are snow chains no matter what vehicle you are inside.
Petrol is cheaper in Austria than in some neighbouring countries but is still more expensive than in the USA. It is recommended to leave the motorway for a gas station, as fuel is up to 30 cents per liter!
Since the country is small, the total journey time is unlikely to be shorter than by rail or car. In other words, fly only if you are on a business trip.
Most Austriacisms are loanwords from Austro-Bavarian, even though languages of the neighbouring countries have influenced as well.
Other languages have some official status in different localities e. The first language of almost all Austrians, however, is not Standard German, but instead local dialects of the Austro-Bavarian Boarisch family, except in Vorarlberg where it is replaced by Alemannic Alemannisch.
These dialect groups are only partially mutually intelligeble to each other and Standard German, and especially in the larger cities almost everyone will be able to communicate in Standard German as well, if only when speaking to foreigners including Germans.
English is widely spoken, and the only area most tourists have linguistic problems with is in translating menus. In general, when speaking Standard German, Austrians tend to pronounce the vowels longer and use a pronunciation which is regional, yet genuine, elegant and melodic.
Also, the "ch", "h" and "r" are not as harshly pronounced as in Germany, making the accent much more mild in nature. Highlights include for example the High Mountain National Park in the Zillertal Alps, with peaks up to m, narrow gorges and steep cliffs.
National Park Thayatal combines beautiful valley landscapes with a variety of castles and ruined fortresses. Wachau and Dunkelsteinerwald in Lower Austra are fine and protected examples.
To make the image complete, the valley landscapes and hillsides are dotted with countless picturesque villages. Beside all that rustic, tranquil nature and countryside, Austria has a whole other side too.
The 12th century St. Salzburg , birthplace of Mozart, combines delightful Alpine surroundings with a beautifully preserved historic centre.
The same goes for Innsbruck , at the heart of Tyrol. Austria is well known for its scenic cycle routes along its largest rivers.
Though Austria is a mountainous country, cycle routes along rivers are flat or gently downhill, and therefore suitable even for casual cyclists.
The most famous route is the Danube cycle path from Passau to Vienna, one of the most popular cycle paths in Europe, drawing large crowds of cyclists from all over the world each summer.
Other rivers with well-developed cycle routes are the Inn, Drau, Moell and Mur. Most routes follow a combination of dedicated cycle paths, country lanes, and traffic calmed roads, and are well suited for children.
Salzburg and Vienna offer world renowned opera, classical music and jazz at moderate prices, but performances of high standards are also widely available throughout the rest of the country.
Traditional Alpine instruments are the accordion and zither. In Vienna a type of melancholic violin music known as Schrammelmusik is often performed in Restaurants and Heurigen.
Austria has quite a special kind of cinematic culture, that is worth taking notice of as tourist. Many films star celebrities from cabaret, a kind of staged comedy popular in Austria.
Seidl received various awards for his drama Hundstage It is normally safe to hike without a guide in the Austrian Alps, as there is a dense network of marked trails and mountain shelters.
However, a few lethal incidents do happen every year as a result of carelessness. Walkers are strongly advised not to stray off the trails and not to hike in bad weather or without suitable equipment.
Before setting off, always check with the local tourist office whether the trail corresponds to your abilities. Also, check the weather forecast.
Sudden thunderstorms are frequent and are more likely to happen in the afternoon. The Alps can be very crowded with mountaineers, especially in high season there are even traffic jams of climbers on some popular mountains.
Long distance trails are marked with the Austrian flag red-white-red horizontal stripes painted onto rocks and tree trunks. Most trails and mountain huts are maintained by the Austrian Alpine Club.
Mountain huts are meant to be shelters, not hotels. Though they are normally clean and well-equipped, standards of food and accommodation are basic.
Blankets are provided, but bringing a thin sleeping bag is mandatory for hygienic reasons. For the same reason, there are no trash cans in or near huts.
Electricity and gas are hard to bring there, too, so warm showers if available at all have to be paid for. As mentioned above, mountain huts are very useful for hikers, they mostly have a heated common room and they are very romantic, but there is nothing more than necessary.
Under the rule of Prince-Archbishop Count Leopold Anton von Firmian in , numerous inhabitants called Exulanten were forced to leave the country, many of them found refuge in the Kingdom of Prussia , where they settled in East Prussia Gumbinnen.
Mainly French and Red Army POWs were interred here, about 4, Soviet inmates were killed or succumbed to the conditions of their detention. Johann, a small portion of a picnic scene from The Sound of Music was filmed on a hillside, in the Pongau city of Werfen.
Julie Andrews and crew filmed the opening shots of the " Do-Re-Mi " sequence with the Burg Hohenwerfen in the background. On 24 June St. Johann completed the Stadtserhebung process and received official city privileges from the Austrian government.
