VIENNA UNDERGROUND - VIENNA TRAMS AUSTRIA

Vienna Tram StopVienna Underground - There are five underground lines that provide comprehensive coverage of the City: UI red, U2 purple, U3 yellow, U4 green, U6 brown (But as yet no U5)!

The Vienna Underground is simple to use, just check on your map the station you want to go to, and the last station on that line (to make sure you go in the right direction).

Tickets are available in stations, some trams, etc. The handiest approach is to buy a one-day or three-day ticket which covers all forms of transport. In October 2004, 24 Stunden Wien Karte – a 24 hour Vienna ticket cost €5.

The VIENNA CARD covers three days and as well as all public transport, you get reduced admission rates for leading attractions and discounts on tours, trips, shops, etc. These can be purchased in your hotel or Vienna Transport Sales counters for approx. €17.

A single trip ticket costs about €2. When you first use your ticket you validate it in the ticket machine.

 

Vienna Trams - The red and white trams trundle around Vienna and are an efficient, pleasant and nostalgic way to get from one sight to another. The trams also serve outlying areas.

Two of the best Vienna Tram trips are the 38 to Grinzing and Tram 1 or 2.

Trams 1 and 2 go right around the Inner Ring continuously. One goes clockwise, the other anti-clockwise. It’s a good way to orient yourself at the start of your visit to Vienna. Just get on Tram 1 (or Tram 2) and make the complete circle, checking out sights on your map as you go.

Also admire the way the lovely boulevard of Ringstrasse encircles the Innere Stadt or Inner City – an achievement of Franz Joseph.
