Vienna’s stations are getting a new lease of life

Vienna’s new Central Station entered partial operation at the beginning of December 2012.

After a remodeling phase lasting five years, the Vienna-Mitte station presents itself with a new, modern design and also offers numerous shopping possibilities with "The Mall". The project is set for completion in April 2013.

The new Vienna Central Station also entered into partial operation together with the new ÖBB timetable at the beginning of December 2012. Four platforms and one through track have been in use since the opening. The local trains of the Ostbahn now stop at the Central Station, and the temporary Ostbahnhof has been closed. Completion of the redesigned station is planned for the end of 2014. The "bahnorama", a giant wooden tower next to the construction site, houses an exhibition on the mega-project and affords visitors a glimpse of building progress.

Changes to public transport services

  • tram line D has been extended by one station to the eastern exit ("Hauptbahnhof Ost" terminus)
  • the U1 station "Südtiroler Platz" has been renamed "Südtiroler Platz - Hauptbahnhof"
  • the express train station "Südtiroler Platz" is now called "Hauptbahnhof Wien", the express train station "Südbahnhof" is now called "Quartier Belvedere"
  • transfers to tramlines O and 18 as well as to bus lines 13A and 69A are now wheelchair accessible

Motorail

A new motorail facility has been built on Matzleinsdorfer Platz, which is taking over operations from the Südbahnhof. Ask for more information when you buy your motorail ticket.

Vienna-Meidling Station

This modernized and expanded station temporarily replaces Vienna's Südbahnhof. It is in the 12th district, at the end of Meidlinger Hauptstraße. All local trains that used to arrive at or depart from the Südbahnhof will now arrive at or depart from this station. The long-distance trains (e.g. from the Czech Republic or Poland) will also end or start at Vienna-Meidling, or will continue through to Vienna Neustadt, with some going as far as Villach.
Ideal connections to the city centre transport network are guaranteed by underground line 6 - Philadelphiabrücke station, tram line 62, various bus lines, express trains and the local Vienna-Baden railway.

The direct airport bus of the Vienna Airport Lines stops at Vienna-Meidling station, in Dörflerstraße.

Westbahnhof - "Austria's most beautiful station"

Vienna's Westbahnhof, which has also been called BahnhofCity since the general refurbishment and expansion (2008-2011), is the Viennese terminus for trains arriving from Western Europe and Western Austria.

A larger shopping mall, a diverse dining experience and, of course, all the services of Austrian Railways are now available at Vienna's Westbahnhof. The excellent reception of the conversion amongst passengers is reflected in first place in this year's station test carried out by the Verkehrsclub Österreich (VCÖ). The airport bus of the Vienna Airport Lines continues to stop on Europaplatz, in front of the station building.

Vienna-Mitte Station

The extremely busy station near the city center is one of the most important transport hubs in the city. Vienna-Mitte is the intersection for two metro lines (U3 and U4), five express train lines, including the airport express train S7, tram line O and bus line 74A, which enable rapid onward journeys. In addition to check-in counters for numerous airlines, the station also houses the terminal for the airport express train City Airport Train CAT. The offer will be rounded off with the shopping center "The Mall" from November 2012.

Carmina Burana at the Westbahnhof

Musicians and singers of the Vienna Volksoper, dressed as tourists or station staff, meet as if by chance at Vienna's Westbahnhof and sing Oh Fortuna from Carmina Burana by Carl Orff. The ballet of the Volksoper dances to it.

 

Travelers arriving at Vienna's Westbahnhof get an especially charming welcome from the Vienna Volksoper.
