Getting There

Vienna is super-well connected to the rest of Austria by bus and train. However, many budget flights will actually use the Bratislava airport in Slovakia (about 90 minutes away – some fares will include a mini-bus ride between Bratislava and Vienna)


Getting Around

The Vienna Metro is fast and frequent. Consider buying a 24-hour travelcard for cheaper travel. Trams are also quick and convenient for trips across the centre of town.


Where to stay
