Directions to Vienna

Train: Vienna is very well connected to most European countries by regular and comfortable trains. Direct connections to all neighboring countries are served daily and can be very reasonably-priced if booked in advance. There are three major train stations in Vienna, which are all conveniently located and connected to subway lines: the brand-new Hauptbahnhof, Bahnhof Meidling (south), and Westbahnhof (west).

Bus: A variety of international bus-lines connects Vienna to all major cities within reach – even places like London or Barcelona. Book ahead for discounts! Most buses arrive at the VIB – Vienna International Bus-terminal, located at U3 subway stop “Erdberg”.

Air Travel: For environmental reasons, we encourage our visitors to choose alternative modes of transport where possible and viable. If you wish to fly, Vienna’s airport is located just 20 minutes from the centre of the city in Schwechat. The best way to get to Vienna from there is to take the suburban train (S-Bahn), leaving every 30 minutes. Bratislava airport is another possible option, as it is served by different (discount) airlines. Busses connect this airport to Vienna regularly.
If you wish to compensate for the CO2-emissions of your flight we recommend you to use the carbon offsetting system of BOKU – University for Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna.

Car: If you want to come to Vienna by car please be aware that in most parts of the city parking is restricted (to a maximum of 2 or 3 hours) and you need to buy and fill in parking tickets. On weekends, parking is mostly free and not time-restricted. An alternative is to leave the car at one of the big park&ride places, usually located at the city borders and near major subway stops. Be aware that travel within the city is usually quicker by public transport than by car.
