Trains to Vienna Find train times and tickets

You can hop on a direct train to Vienna from more than a dozen countries across Europe. No other capital city in the European Union can boast as fine a choice of international rail connections. So whether your journey starts in Moscow or Monaco, Berlin or Budapest, it’s easy to reach Vienna on a direct train. The Austrian capital is a popular destination with visitors from Britain, and here on Loco2 we can offer a number of daytime or overnight routes from London to Vienna – usually requiring two changes of train.

Almost all long-distance journeys to Vienna end at the city’s sparkling new Hauptbahnhof which opened in late 2014. All remaining international trains which previously served Westbahnhof shifted to Hauptbahnhof in December 2015.

Vienna is a showpiece capital, with a compact central area which is easily explored on foot. Some of the grander boulevards drip with Habsburg nostalgia. There are churches and palaces aplenty, cream cakes and schnitzel galore. In short, Vienna lives up to every stereotype. But you need not be smothered by Imperial Vienna. There is an edgier side to the city too, marked out in Vienna’s vibrant club scene.

Vienna is the hub for rail routes fanning out across Europe so it makes an excellent stop as a part of a wider rail adventure. Links to central European capitals are especially good, with frequent fast trains to Bratislava, Prague and Budapest. There are also comfortable direct daytime trains to Warsaw, Belgrade, Venice and Zurich. We are not yet able to book the full range of international routes from Vienna here on Loco2, but we’ve certainly enough on offer to get you started.
