A couple of Vienna and Salzburg questions

Jump to last reply

I've made a lot of progress planning my trip to Vienna and Salzburg. Travelers will be me and my mother. We have 6 days in Vienna staying at the K+K Maria Theresa and 2 in Salzburg at Hotel Elefant. There are a few things I could use some help with.

I've booked tickets for the SUnday morning performance at the Spanish riding school. I need to pick up the tickets there...we are arriving on Saturday so no chance to do it in advance. How early should I go for the 11AM performance...will there be a line to get the tix?

I've also booked opera tickets at the Staatsoper. We're interested in other musical performances as well, perhaps something at the Musikverein. Mom and I are pretty serious about our classical music....will we like the Vienna Mozart orchestra or the Strauss Orchestra? Are these high quality performances, or generally kind of touristy? Unfortunately the Vienna Philharmonic is not in town during our stay, and while I would love to hear the Berlin Symphony, they are playing the same night as our opera. Any other options you can suggest?

There appear to be 2 different trains we can take to go from Vienna to Salzburg. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between them, should we choose one over the other? Am I correct that we will do better, pricewise, if we book this train in advance?

Finally, any recommendations for dinner in Salzburg? We have only 2 evenings, and on the first one I would really like to stay someplace close to the hotel, in the old town. Would love to find something with traditional Austrian food, nice atmosphere, and not too terribly touristy. Price is not a big concern.
