Great to get out of the city and see some of the surrounding countryside on a short break to Vienna. Guide was excellent and spoke English and Spanish fluently for the small number of guests in our party. Would have liked to spend a wee bit more time in Mayerling as there was a lot to read! Unfortunately, it started snowing when we were in Baden and our visit was cut shorter than usual as we were all frozen stiff, couldn’t take as many photos as I wanted due to my phone switching itself off with the cold. A young Korean exchange student in our party was fascinated by the snow, as she’d never seen it before! Definitely worth a visit, but perhaps in warmer month than February.

Snow day trip to Mayerling

The welcoming staff were on time, helpful and very pleasant. Our driver was great and showed his skills in the narrow snow laden roads in the countryside. The guide was entertains and related to 4 different languages in the bus. The trip was a memorable one the lodge, Abbey and underground lake were fabulous. Great memories.

Out of the City

Took this to get out of the city. The 2 religious sites were interesting up to a point, but as an atheist a bit lost on me, but impressive sites. The underground mine however, was utterly fab. A very unique experience and site. You got a good commentary on 'The Woods' and its place in Austria as well.
