From the Airport to Vienna Feb 17, 2017
The cheapest way is by train, € 3,90 (including travel on Vienna public transport), direct trains (Railjet or IC) to Hauptbahnhof, 15 minutes every 30 minutes (U1, tram O and 18, and several S Bahn lines) and Wien Meidling (U6, tram 62, and several S Bahn lines) or S Bahn, S 7 to Wien Simmering (U 3), Wien Rennweg (tram 71, several S Bahn lines), Wien Mitte (U 3, U 4, tram O), Wien Handelskai (U 6) and Wien Floridsdorf (tram 30 and 31, and several S Bahn lines) every 30 minutes, € 3,90 (including travel on Vienna public transport) and 24 minutes,

If you come out of the custom area, go to the right and follow the signs to the CAT train station down the ramp then to the left and down the staircase for the S Bahn station, buy the ticket in the vending machine at the platform.

Bus is every 20 minutes for € 8 to Morzinplatz (20? minutes, citycenter), Wien Westbahnhof (45? minutes) and some other places in Vienna, there are also buses to Neusiedl a. See, Bratislava, Brno, Prag and Budapest.

The CAT train every is running 30 minutes, € 11(online), € 12 (ticket machine) € 14 (in the train) and 16 minutes to Wien Mitte (if you go to the airport you can check in in Wien Mitte if you have a Star Alliance ticket).

Taxi: if you just step in the cab it will be € 30 to 50 depending on trafic and where in Vienna. Or if you go to the green taxi counter at the arrival hall (or online from € 33), order a "Wiener Taxi", you get a flat fee anywhere in Vienna for € 36, you will have to wait about 5 to 10 minutes for the driver to pick you up.

Ok, So people keep asking how to get to Vienna from the airport.

There are a number of ways.

If you have money expect a taxi to cost around E60.

If you want the quickest, cheapest way then catch the train!

But BEWARE!

There are two trains that go and the more expensive one is that one that is heavily advertised:

1. CAT

The CAT is a very nice, new rapid transit train that goes direct from the airport to Wien Mitte (also called Landstrasse).

The journey takes 16minutes and costs around E9.

You can buy tickets on the platform with Euro/Credit Card/Bankomat/ATM card. The machine is in multiple languages and easy to use. You can also buy on the train but it is cheaper on the platform.

CAT's go about every 30 minutes.

The CAT ends at Wien Mitte which is a central location just to the south of the city centre.

From here you can transfer onto the U-Bahn (Underground) to get almost anzwhere in the city.

Dont forget to get another ticket for the U-Bahn!

U can risk faredodging but they have been checking a lot lately and its a E60 fine.

2. S-Bahn (Normal Train)

From the same location as the CAT but it is not advertised.

It is simply the opposite platform.

The train is called the S7

Trains are every 30minutes and take around 25minutes to get to Wien Mitte.

Cost is about E3

Trains run till 11.30pm in winter and 12.30 in summer.

I'd recommend this option everytime unless you are in a hurry or have too much money...

You can buy tickets on the platform with Euro/Credit Card/Bankomat/ATM card. The machine is in multiple languages and easy to use. You can also buy on the train but it is cheaper on the platform.

Check the Train website for latest details as things may change and I dont claim to be 100% on everything!

Have fun in Vienna!

Viel spass in Wien!
