Travelling to Vienna

The International Airport Schwechat (VIE) is just outside of Vienna. It serves most European Cities and has also several daily flights to America and Asia. A direct S-Bahn (S7) connects the airport to the Vienna Biocenter (station: St. Marx - 25min ride) for just Euro 4.20 (tickets are available directly at the train station).

An alternative airport is the Bratislava Airport (BTS) which is served by several budget airlines. From there, a bus connects to Vienna (approximately 1 hour ride).
