Traveling to Vienna Vacation Homes

Wien Schwechat is Vienna’s International Airport. It is located approximately 18 kilometers southeast of the city near a small town called Schwechat, hence its name. The airport is home to Austria’s national carrier which has direct flights to North America. The airport also hosts a variety of regional and international airlines that have flight connections throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Vienna has an efficient and extensive public transport system. The trains are commonly known as the S-Bahn routes and the underground is the U-Bahn. There are also buses that provide additional connections around the city. Taxis are on call 24 hours a day and a good option if you plan on dining out or attending a show that may end late at night. There is an extensive road system but it is not recommended for foreigners to drive there, as there are many one-way and narrow streets in parts of the city. It’s instead recommended to use the subway or taxis to get around.

It’s not quite possible to do all of Vienna’s attractions justice in a short time.
