    Public Transport

    To get around in Vienna you have the opportunity to use the well constructed public transport system. Depending on how much you are planning to travel around and how long you wish to stay, we can recommend the following tickets:

    Ticket for a single trip: (€2,20 for one; €8,80 for 4, €17,60 for eight)

    Valid for one trip in one direction. You are allowed to change but the trip must not be interrupted for a longer time than changing the means of transport takes.

    They are also available as „strip-cards“. (As the ViennaTramways DO NOT provide this on there english website, there is no official translation of „Streifenkarte“. I’m sry.. you may have to explain)
    Strips are made for 4 or 8 strips. Just valid one strip per trip. 😉 If you travel together, you can also valid one strip per person.

    72-hour-ticket: (16,50€)

    Valid for exactly 72 hours from validation.
    Also available for 24h and 48h.

    8-day-ticket: (38,40€)

    Valid for eight days. Note, that the days don’t have to be consecutive and that the ticket can be used by more than one person at the same time, if they are travelling together. Valid one strip for every person and every day.

    For our guests arriving by plane:
    Unfortunately the Vienna Airport is not situated in the province Vienna and based on this the transport by train to the airport is not included in the tickets listed above.
    In this context we’d like to inform you, that the CAT (CityAirportTrain) is not part of the „Wiener Linien“. When arriving we recommend to use the trains of the local public transport. For this you should buy one of the tickets above and additionally a ticket „Vienna airport“ to „Schwechat „.

    Please do not forget to validate both tickets before entering the train.
    Different from trams and busses there’s no option to do that on trains!

    As we would like to give you the opportunity to select yourself one of the delicious Viennese dishes, we bring to your attention that the dinner on saturday is not included in the price of the event.
