I lived in austria last year and it was seriously the best time of my life, I would give anything to go back. Theres a ton of skiing up in Salzburg, I would look for a pass, you usually get the best deals. I lived in the state of Steirermark and they had something called the Steirermark joker and I could go to any where in the entire state and ski. Hopefully they'll have a better winter this year.
Dont worry about the German, I went there knowing nothing and I can speak it almost fluently now. Just enjoy your time there. And if you're ever in a city called Leoben, go to pub o cino. Best place ever.
iv been here for 1 month in vienna, and gonna stay here to Feb.2011. there is a season pass for 350 lifts and over 2,000 km pistols in salzburg. id like to buy it. the trains are easy to use and not expensive. going to other countries is very simple.
oh yeah its pretty easy
the best thing to do with the trains is get the vorteilscard, well you need to be under 26, but it is the best thing ever, will save you sooo much money. you go to the main ticket office, not the machine and ask for a vorteills card, youll need your passport, a passport photo (it really doesnt matter just that size) and 20 euros, from that it'll make every single train ride in austria half price. its such a good deal, and since youre in salzburg youre pretty close to munich
but for real, do the voreteilcard thing, itll be a lifesaver
