Getting from Brno Airport to Vienna

Vienna, the capital of Austria and one of the most romantic cities in Europe, is a great destination for those seeking a balance between history, culture and a little indulgence. The Gothic masterpiece of Stephansdom Cathedral is an icon of Vienna and one of the best places for a panoramic view of the city. For more stunning architecture, head to Schönbrunn and Belvedere Palaces, and then stroll through Naschmarkt marketplace to sample local produce and dishes, stopping off in one of Vienna’s historic coffeehouses, Café Demel.

The three main transport options from Brno Airport to Vienna are taxi or private transfer, bus, or train. The quickest and only door-to-door transfer option is a taxi or private transfer which takes around 90 minutes in light traffic. The combined train and airport bus is the cheapest option and takes around 110 minutes, however, there can be lengthy wait times in between services. Another affordable public transport option, with a slightly longer journey time of 120 minutes–excluding wait times–is the combination of a public and private bus which runs a little more frequently than the train.
