How to Get from Vienna City Center to the Airport and Other Destinations
There are several options to get from Vienna to Schwechat or Budapest, as well as Bratislava International Airport: by taxi, transfer, train, or bus.
Taxi from Vienna
If you are going to visit the capitals of neighbouring countries (Bratislava, Budapest, Prague, and others) or get from Vienna to the nearest airport, you can use taxi service. This is the best travel option for those who have problems orienting in unfamiliar places. Taxi in Vienna can be booked via phone or taken at a special rank — catching a car on the road is impossible. If you decide to call a taxi by phone, don’t forget to buy a local SIM-card beforehand.
Taxi prices depend on the amount of baggage, distance to the destination, and the time of day.

Public transport from Vienna
Besides taking a taxi cab, you can go from Vienna to other cities and airports by public transport – by bus or train. The train to Bratislava departs every half an hour. Its ticket cost ranges from 10 to 16 euros, and its travel time is about an hour. To get from the railway station to the airport, you need to get off at Bratislava hlavná stanica and take the city bus № 61.
The bus from Vienna departs every hour and goes directly to Bratislava Airport. The ticket price starts from 5 euros. Of course, taking a bus is cheaper than taking a private transfer, but this is the only advantage of this travel option.
Unlike taxis or transfers, public transport cannot provide the high comfort level. Tickets may be sold out, and you’ll have to wait for another trip. This can be quite exhausting because public transport stops are usually crowded with people. Moreover, the train fare remains high.
Besides that, a transfer can take you to any point in the city, while you have to get from the train station to the airport on your own or call a taxi again.
