Travel to Vienna


Vienna International Airport

Vienna is located in the very heart (the geographical center) of Europe -- this is of benefit to all our guests who will be able to reach Vienna easily either by plane, car, or train.
The Vienna International Airport connects Vienna to the world -- almost 11 million passengers arrive per year.  Nearly every international carrier includes the destination VIE.  

Our national carrier, Austrian Airlines, a member of the Star Alliance ("Miles and More" Frequent Flyer Program), operates direct flights to and from New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Washington; for all other US cities, a connection is necessary.  Delta Airlines also fly directly to Vienna from New York and Atlanta.  British Airways operates flights from North and South America and Canada stopping off at London.  Lufthansa offers a service from the US to Frankfurt and Munich with connecting flights to Vienna.  In average, there are daily two direct flights between the US and Vienna and several more connections with stop-overs in various places.

Transportation from the Airport downtown:

From Vienna Airport the air-conditioned Airport Bus shuttling in 20 min's intervals takes passengers directly to the City Air Terminal located near the very City Center in less than half an hour.  The bus stops at Vienna Airport are situated right in front of the arrival/departure lounge.  
Presently¹, the bus fare (one way) is € 6.
Alternatively, there is an hourly train connection (€ 3 one way).
Moreover, there is the 'Airport Express' rail link shuttling every 15 min's (€ 9 one way).  The 'CityAirportTrain' is new, it became operational only last winter.
Still I think the good old Airport Bus is the most recommendable.
