Thank you for all of the helpful information on your website. I have a few questions regarding our trip to Austria next month (Jan 2022) and wondering if you can help.
We will be starting out in Switzerland and taking the train from Buchs SG to Salzburg. Spending 3 days in Salzburg to visit Salzburg and Hallstatt. Then from Salzburg traveling to Vienna for 5 days.
I have gone over your rout map that indicates the one way cost for each way. I have calculated $210 per person for the following:
Buchs SG to Salzburg (one way)
Salzburg to Hallstatt (round trip)
Salzburg to Vienna (one way)
Since the Austria Rail pass for 3 days is $166 - this would benefit us correct?
Is the journey from Buchs SG to Salzburg covered in the Austria Rail Pass?
Also, does the Austria Rail Pass cover any transportation within Vienna, Salzburg or Hallstatt or do we need to purchase a city pass within each region?
