Linz is situated between Salzburg and Vienna, hence closer to Vienna. You can also look for flights to Bratislava.

Thank you Mikey for the info, although it would have saved you some time to say that straight away rather than try to be smart :~)

I am map phobic sadly, as someone may be gynophobic or xenophobic for example

Good day!

yes...unless i am accompanied by a very "switched on" travelling companion, which fortunately for me, i am :)

I also have very strong instincts, you know like a cat, so travelling alone isnt that bad really

Thanks! :)

How about Vienna Airport?!?!?!?

You could get a Lufthansa flight with a connection in Germany which would be much more convenient than either of the others!

Lufthansa does not fly from Cork. In order to fly with them, you'd have to depart from Dublin airport. If you are going to make the trip from Cork to Dublin, you may as well book a direct flight from Dublin to Vienna with Aer Lingus.

As for your original query, Linz is much closer than Salzburg, though I can understand Mikey's sarcasm about using a map to determine this yourself! :)
