If you only plan to travel from Wien to other places occasionally, the best idea to buy individual tickets as mentioned above. However, if you plan to travel a lot, it may worth to check one of the available EuRail Passes. They are pretty expensive, but if you plan to travel for longer distances, it may worth to read their website.
There are a reduced price Youth Pass for people under 26, so that may be good for you. Also, you can choose a Global or a 3/4/5-countries pass. And, depending on your travel planning, there are continous versions (for example tickets which are vailid continously for 21 days starting from its validation) and "x days in y days" versions too if you don't travel every day.
So again: expensive, but if you plan to travel a lot, it worth a try. If only travelling occasionally, individual tickets are a lot better.

thanks alot for your help..It was something interesting to me!I`m gonna check it out...

Dear Noosha,

Hop on hop off buses are a good idea if you plan to visit a city in a day and don't want to care about pre-readings about what to see and how to get there. Also, they usually provide some guide on their buses about what you're seeing. You may want to check http://www.citytour.hu/, they have a hop on hop off route and I've seen their buses in the city when I was there several times. I have never tried them though, so I have no personal opinion about their service (When I was in Paris, I've seen similar services, but I preferred public transport back then too. However, despite of the Budapest public transport, it was easy to find and print a traffic map of Paris).

If their route satisfies your needs, it worths a try. An advantage that it does not need any previous knowledge about what to see. If you have specific ideas what you want to visit instead and you find a traffic map somehow, as an alternate solution, the daily ticket for BKV (the Budapest Public Transport System) is 1550 Ft currently (~5.50 €)
