Due to its central location in Europe, Vienna is easy to reach by plane, car, train or even boat.
Austria has an excellent network of motorways, expressways and federal highways. Tolls are compulsory on all motorways and expressways, and you will need a toll sticker to use Vienna's city motorways.
Distances are short from major European capitals such as Berlin (681 km), Munich (435 km), Budapest (243 km) or even Prague (331 km).
Vienna has several railway stations for international railway services. The Austrian railroad network is operated by the Austrian Federal Railway (ÖBB).
