Traveling to Vienna

By Plane

Vienna, centrally located in Europe, is easily accessible from around the world through Vienna International Airport (VIE). The airport provides direct connections to major European cities and hubs, as well as to significant international destinations. The rapid transit railroad (S-Bahn) offers a cost-effective way to commute between the city of Vienna and Vienna Airport within 30 minutes. Taxis are also readily available.

By Train

Vienna offers excellent train connections to major European cities, including Zurich (8 hours), Munich (4 hours), Prague (4 hours), Budapest (3 hours), and Frankfurt (6 hours). The Austrian Federal Railways, known as ÖBB, is the national railway company of Austria and provides further information on schedules and fares.

Public Transport

Vienna has a well-developed public transport network that is affordable, frequent, fast, clean, efficient, and rarely overcrowded. Wiener Linien is the municipal transport authority, and their website provides further information on schedules and available tickets.
