Travel by train
For ecological reasons, we strongly recommend that you travel by train. Vienna is in the very heart of Europe, there should be interesting options to travel by train – please have a look at your national train service for further information! We would also like to point out that up to a distance of 700 kilometers, travelling by train is often more convenient and more time efficient.
You may want to contact the Austrian mobility service provider ÖBB for further information: https://www.oebb.at/en/
