Vienna day trips not impacted by floods...suggestions?

So, I'm thinking of changing plans for the third time in 2 days! Was supposed to go Munich to Budapest by train Tuesday, but that trip sounds like a nightmare with delays and riding a bus part way!! So....if I end my journey in Vienna, what day trips will not be affected by floods (I assume Melk is out??). It will be my daughter (11) and me. We like cafes, architecture, history and wine ( me not her :-)). I would have 6 full days. Thank you for any advice!

A popular day trip from Vienna usually is the Wachau and Melk/Krems which have been affected by the flooding. If you can't go on to Budapest (what I frankly doubt), then you could visit, for instance, the Austrian city of Graz which wasn't affected at all. This is possible as day trip, the landscape between Vienna and Graz is very picturesque.

Go to Klosterneuburg - nice church, good wine and history. Close to Vienna. Vienna itself can fill many days and has nice little wine villages on outskirts. Schloss Laxenburg is also close to Vienna.

You could go to one of the wine villages and towns to the south of Vienna that nestle by the Vienna Woods. Perchtoldsdorf, Mödling, Gumpoldskirchen and Baden all follow one another on the south railway and are easily and cheaply reached.

Schlosshof -


A fine summer Palace with beautiful gardens, petting zoo, stable with many horses and on site restaurants.

The Palace recently restored and much furniture returned to its former home.

Access bus from Vienna - a boat sometimes too.



also a little harder to reach train S-7 then a little walking



A former Roman outpost city to guard the frontier.

Numerous re built buildings - interesting as many do not realize the Danube a former border
