My husband and I will be wrapping our honeymoon in September in Vienna, taking the train from Ljubljana on a Monday morning (so it will be a daytime trip). I'd love some insight on two quick questions!
There are two route options from Ljlubljana to Vienna: Ljubljana - Graz - Wien (via Maribor) and Ljubljana - Wien (via Villach). The route through Maribor has a slightly more convenient departure/arrival time, but the timetable for either one would work. Is one route more scenic than the other? Is there any difference between the routes in terms of train cars/seats? Has anyone had experience with either route? Any advice would be much appreciated!
Any tips/advice/warnings about purchasing discounted SparSchiene tickets for this trip? The price difference is substantial, but that also makes me a little wary.
Thanks so much!
