How to Get from Stephansdom to Wien Westbahnhof Station
Stephansdom and Stephansplatz
St. Stephen’s Cathedral, also known as Stephansdom (or Steffl to the locals) is the top landmark of Vienna (maybe sharing the top spot with Schönbrunn Palace). Stephansdom is located at the square bearing the same name – Stephansplatz. This square is the true heart of Vienna. Two busy shopping streets meet here: Graben and Kärntner Strasse, running from Vienna State Opera.
Wien Westbahnhof Train Station
Westbahnhof Station is located outside the Inner City, about halfway between the Imperial Palace (Hofburg) and Schönbrunn Palace. The first impression of Westbahnhof is probably that the place serves two purposes: transport and shopping. Wien-Westbahnhof is a busy train station, serving both long-distance and local traffic. Together with the passing Mariahilfer Strasse, it is also a renowned hotel district. Some Westbahnhof hotels are among the best in Vienna.
Getting from Stephansdom to Westbahnhof
There is a big metro station at Stephansplatz (literally under the cathedral). The station is named also Stephansplatz and serves two lines: U1 (Reumannplatz – Leopoldau) and U3 (Ottakring – Simmering). In order to get to Westbahnhof, you need to take line U3 in direction to Ottakring. The fifth stop after Stephansplatz is Westbahnhof (the metro station has the same name as the train station). The ride should take less than 10 minutes and cost less than 2 EUR.
