++ From WESTBAHNHOF ++
For your orientation: when you're on the platform and walking towards the main hall, we're exactly on your right-hand side. So: try to exit the building in this direction; look for signs with ‘Mariahilfer Strasse’. Use the main exit, turn right and on the next street right again: this is Mariahilfer Strasse; we're on the left side of it at number 137.

++ From HAUPTBAHNHOF ++
Take tram no. 18 to Westbahnhof. Left of the Westbahnhof train station is Aussere Mariahilfer Strasse. Follow Mariahilfer Straße and you will see wombats “The Lounge” on your left.

Take the underground line U6 until the stop Westbahnhof. Follow the signs ‘Mariahilfer Strasse’ and walk Mariahilfer Strasse. We are number 137.

++ From ERDBERG (EUROLINES Bus Station) ++
take the U3 (orange line) direction Ottakring and get off at Westbahnhof.
Being in the main hall of the subway take the exit ‘Aussere Mariahilfer Strasse’ at the very right.
Take the escalator up, follow Mariahilfer Strasse and you will see wombats “The Lounge” on your left.

++ From FRANZ-JOSEFS-BAHNHOF ++

++ From the AIRPORT ++
Fastest option: Taxi. Cost: about 35 EUR.
Most convenient option: the shuttle bus to Westbahnhof (~8 EUR, buy ticket from driver).
Cheapest option: the S-Bahn (S7) to Wien Mitte and from there underground U3 to Westbahnhof (same ticket valid for both ~4 EUR).

The 'City Airport Train' (CAT) is a few minutes faster than the S-Bahn, but also more expensive- it also ends at Wien Mitte, from where you'll have to catch the U3 underground to Westbahnhof. The CAT ticket is not valid for the U3!

Shuttle bus (Vienna Airportlines):
The bus will drop you off right in front of the main entrance of the train station. Standing in front - Westbahnhof behind you - turn right and walk half way around the train station. That'll lead you to Mariahilfer Strasse. Look to your left and you can already see the Wombat's on the opposite side of the street.

S-Bahn or CAT and U3:
Get off the U3 at Westbahnhof, then take the exit 'Aussere Mariahilfer Strasse'. Once up there, continue walking until no. 137 on the left-hand side of the street.

Located Near

The Lounge is located near Westbahnhof (main international train station).
Mariahilferstrasse (Vienna's main shopping drag) is a few steps away.
Furthermore, there is a direct tram connection to 'Schoenbrunn Palace' and it's only 3 stops to the historic city center and the landmark 'St Stephen's Cathedral'.
