Traveling in Austria -
how to get around by train or car

Austria offers an excellent public transport system which is well connected with its neighboring countries. Roads and highways are well maintained and signposted. Internal flights are not of great interest to tourists due to the excellent ground transportation.

Trains are a popular and convenient way to travel to Austria, and Austrian and European rail passes make train travel affordable. The public transportation network covers all major cities and attractions in Austria. The trains are clean, reliable and frequent. Major hubs like Vienna and Salzburg, with train stations right at the airports, are four hours apart.

There are car-rental agencies in most sizeable towns and at the airports. Driving in Austria is easy and the roads are well maintained, well signposted and generally not too congested, though you may find it hard to concentrate with such wonderful scenery unfolding around you! Getting to Austria by road is simple, since there are fast highways through all surrounding countries.

Bicycles can be rented at most destinations and returned to any destination with a rental office.

The main entry points for international flights are Vienna - Schwechat and Salzburg - Mozart. The cities of Innsbruck, Klagenfurt and Linz also have airports that receive international flights, but on a much smaller level.
