Day Trip to Melk/Durnstein/Krems from Vienna

Jump to last reply

We would like to do a day trip to Melk/Durnstein/Krems from Vienna in May 2012. Have gone through most of the threads posted on site as well as other sites. Just need the following clarity / confirmation of what we are planning is the right way to do it as we do not want to be stranded without means of a public transport.
1. We will take a combi ticket from Vienna Westbahnhof.
2. Is there a family combi ticket available? If yes, what is the price?
3. Ticket will include train from Vienna - Melk. Approx. 1 1/2 hrs
4. Entrance / tour of the Melk abbey.
Is the guided tour of the Abbey in English which is at 11 am included in this combi ticket?
5. From Melk we take the boat to Durnstein or Krems.
Is the boat dock close to the Abbey or do we need to take a bus?
Is it worth breaking the boat ride in Durnstein or do we go directly to Krems.
Understand that there are 2 boat companies. Is the combi ticket valid on both companies? Where do I get the boat departure schedules from?
6. If we take a stop in Durnstein. I understand that it is easier to take a train or bus to Krems. On the oebb site I have tried to get the schedule of trains/buses between Durnstein and Krems but there are many variations for each of these places, which is the name I select for each of these places on the oebb site.
7. Likewise for Krems to Vienna train schedule, which is the station name I should select for Krems.

Kind regards,
SKPKCP11
