Logistics and Accomodations

By Plane to VIE airport

Vienna (VIE) is the international airport of the town situated in the south of the city. Flights to Vienna are operated by all the major airlines.

From VIE airport to the City

ÖBB-Railjet towards the main train station of Vienna. It takes about 15 minutes and costs 3.90€. It runs every half hour.
The CAT train costs 11€ and runs to "Wien Mitte" in about 16 minutes. A taxi will cost around 25€ to reach the center.

By Train

ÖBB provide a service from many central european cities.

By Car

Vienna has a rather bad parking in the center. In case you are traveling by car we highly recommend to leave it in one of the “park+ride” garages (P+R).
A week costs 17.10 Euro, a single day 3.40 Euro. If you are buying a week ticket for the public transport you should do this before paying the weekly parking fee since it grants you a discount of 3.10 Euro, it does not grant any discount if you pay the parking day-wise.


Close to the TU Wien

TU Wien is within walking distance of Hofburg Palace (the former imperial residence), important music venues including the Vienna State Opera and the Musikverein (home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra – from where the New Year’s Concert is annually broadcasted around the globe), of beautiful churches such as the splendid Baroque Karlskirche (St. Charles’ Church) and Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral), which is located at the very city center, of major museums including the art nouveau Secession, the Albertina Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts (Kunsthistorisches Museum), the Museum of Natural History (Naturhistorisches Museum), the newly built Museumsquartier hosting modern art, and the Belvedere (a complex of two Baroque palaces housing an art museum), as well as Europe’s largest open market – the Naschmarkt – with variety of international restaurants.

      Further away

      Further away from the city center, popular sights include Schönbrunn Palace (the former imperial 1,441-room Rococo summer residence) and the Wiener Prater with the famous Giant Ferris Wheel.
