Vienna-Transportation

Getting around Vienna
SALSA XII Sesquiannual Conference 2019

Vienna has a well-developed public transport network. Buses, trains, trams and underground lines will take you almost anywhere in the city in no time at all. Vienna public transport Wiener Linien operates five underground lines, 29 tram and 127 bus lines, of which 24 are night lines. Night lines only operate between 0:30 am and 5:00 am. On weekends and public holidays the Vienna underground remains at the service of its passengers all night. Another environmentally friendly option is to rent a bike (first hour free) from Citybike Wien.

Getting to the Weltmuseum Wien

The Weltmuseum Wien lies in the very city center of Vienna at the Heldenplatz. The closest station is Volkstheater with the subway lines U2 and U3 and the tram lines 1, 2, D, 71. Another option – only 7 minutes walking distance – is the station Karlsplatz with the subway lines U1 and U4.
