DirectionsShow MapHide Map
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 'Mariahilferstrasse'. Use the main exit, turn right and on the next street right again: this is Mariahilferstrasse; we're on the left side of it at number 137.
This is partly closed down from DECEMBER 2009 due to construction work! Please check whether your train arrives at Sudbahnhof or its temporary substitute Wien Meidling!!
From Wien Meidling (replacement train station for Sudbahnhof until 2012):
Take the underground line U6 until the stop Westbahnhof. Follow the signs 'Mariahilferstrasse' and walk Mariahilferstrasse. We are number 137.
Take tram no. 18 to Westbahnhof. Left of the Westbahnhof train station (the huge construction site in front of you!) is Mariahilfer Strasse. Follow this road. We're at number 137 on the left side.
Take tram no. 5 to Westbahnhof. Left of the Westbahnhof train station is Aussere Mariahilfer Strasse. Follow Mariahilfer Strasse until no. 137.
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 costs 11 EUR- 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 Westbahnhof (main international train station), Mariahilferstrasse (Vienna's main shopping drag), Schonbrunn Palace and the underground station (historic city center three stops away).
