Travel information

How to get to the city centre from the airport?

Option 1: Take the S7 train (red railway; S-Bahn/ÖBB state railway) from the airport train station in the direction of FLORIDSDORF to WIEN MITTE/LANDSTRASSE (departing every 30 minutes). The WIEN MITTE/LANDSTRASSE stop is a major public transportation station where you can change to the underground, the tramway and busses. A single trip takes 26 minutes and costs EUR 3.60. You can buy your ticket at a ticket machine or online.

Note: The airport railway station is just outside the Vienna local fare zone, and by selecting “airport transfer” at the ticket machine on the online form, you will not need to buy additional tickets for your trip to/from the airport.

Option 2: Take the CAT (green railway; City Airport Train, non-stop) from the airport CAT station to WIEN MITTE/LANDSTRASSE (departing every 30 minutes). A single trip takes 16 minutes and costs EUR 9.00.
