Public Transport at it's Best
Vienna, the home for nearly two million plus 7.5 million guests every year, has one of the best developed public transportation systems in the world, so you can reach practically all places safely and inexpensively. The backbone of this network is the subway (U-Bahn) with 5 lines (the 6th is under construction), 83km lengths and 98 stations. Other means of public transport in Vienna are the tram, buses, and the Schnellbahn (“Fast Train”) which covers longer distances and destinations in the surrounding region of Lower Austria including the Vienna International Airport.
The Airport can also easily be reached with the “CAT” (City Airport Train) and several bus lines which leave from important transport hubs including the Vienna Main Station and the UN organizations located on the north riverbank of Vienna.
If you plan to use public transport more than one or two times, it is probably most efficient to get a 1-, 2- or 3-day ticket that covers all means of public transport in Vienna. Other options include one-week tickets (valid Mon-Sun) or an 8 days ticket which is valid on eight individual days.
Vienna for Friends can also prepare your public transport tickets in advance so that you have your ticket the moment you arrive in Vienna and there are no issues in arrival and departure timing. There are also tickets that combine transportation with free entrance or reduction at several venues like exhibitions and museums etc. but the question is whether the planned visit program justifies the significantly higher price - we can also advise you at this point.
Experience Vienna the GREEN Way
one of the services of Vienna for Friends is, to give you advice on how to make the best use of Vienna's highly efficient public transport network and move through Vienna in an environmentally friendly way. So if you let us create a personal itinerary for your visit to Vienna we will also take into consideration, how to get from A to B and in which order you attend your locations, events, and activities.
Another important question we will cover is what kind of tickets you should get and where to get them so that you don’t lose time and money right at the start of your visit to Vienna. This way you don’t have to use a taxi or car (except you have a lot of luggage), save a lot of money and contribute to the (already very high) air quality and environmental standards in Vienna.
Luxury and Environment in Harmony
If you choose our VIP Luxury Traveler Service we chauffeur you through Vienna and at the same time take responsibility for the environment using fully electric vehicles like TESLA limousines. This not only guarantees the standard you probably expect but also enables us to offer the most efficient and comfortable traveling in Vienna all around Austria and experience World Heritage sites as well as the most diverse landscapes and cultural highlights.
The option of taking day trips or multi-day excursions with a Tesla and a guide offers maximum flexibility and a unique price-performance ratio for this type of service - especially if you come as a couple or a group.
