Wien-Schwechat (Vienna) Airport (VIE)


The airport is located 11 miles (18 km) southeast of the center of Vienna. There is a tourist information office in the arrivals hall.

Taxis are available outside the arrivals area. The fare is metered and will be about 360 Austrian schillings ($28). Travel time to the center is about 20-30 minutes.

A very good bus service goes from the airport terminal to the city air terminal right next to the Hilton Hotel (Stadtpark) and to Westbahnhof (West Rail Station) and S├╝dbahnhof (South Rail Station). From those stops it is a short taxi ride to most destinations in the city. If you are staying in a city center hotel, like the Marriott (walkable with light luggage), you would go to the city air terminal and take a taxi to your final destination.

Buses run from 6 A.M. to midnight with departures every 20 minutes from 7:30 A.M. to 11 P.M. The fare is about 70 Austrian schillings ($6) and you pay the driver when you board. This is a very convenient way to the city, almost as fast as the taxi, but a fraction of the cost.

A train runs between the airport and Vienna from about 5 A.M. to about 10:30 P.M. and costs 38 Austrian schillings ($3).

If you wish, your hotel can book you a limo. The cost from the airport to the Hilton is about 450 Austrian schillings ($35). Call beforehand to make this arrangement.
