We are (hopefully) going to Austria over our Winter break (Dec 18-31). I'm hoping to take the train straight from the Vienna airport to Linz (where our daughter will be). It looks like there are plenty of trains that leave the airport, so can we just purchase the tickets after we land? Or, would you recommend I buy them ahead of time?
Nothing has been purchased yet (although I have a few hotels reserved- they can be cancelled for free), but I'm visualizing Vienna to Linz, stay in Linz 4 nights, train to Salzburg for 4 night, then train to Vienna for 4 nights and leave from Vienna. The multiple city option (fly in one airport, out the other) would also work, but I would like to spend the first portion of the trip in Linz. I've also thought about venturing to Munich or Prague- as tempting as that is, I think I'd prefer to keep things simple this trip and just stay in Austria. Thanks for your advice!
