Vienna Westbahnhof Train Station

Westbahnhof (West Train Station) is one of the most important train stations in Vienna. It is the point of arrival and departure for trains between Vienna and several big Austrian and European cities, like Salzburg, Munich, Frankfurt, or Zürich. It is also a popular hotel site – many visitors to Vienna choose Westbahnhof hotels for their location and excellent public transport connections.

Wien Erdberg Bus Station

Erdberg Station, located on the opposite site of Vienna across the Inner City from Westbahnhof, is Vienna’s main long-distance bus terminal. As a good and competitively priced alternative to trains, buses also connect Vienna with many European capitals and tourist targets, like Prague or Budapest. Unlike Westbahnhof, Erdberg is not a typical hotel location, though you will find a few hotels near Erdberg too.
