Hi Sean. Yes, sorry, you're right. But unless you're pushed for time I'd be tempted to walk up through the city or take the tram around the Ringstrasse. I like Vienna's (and other cities') underground systems, but if I can I prefer to take above ground transport as you see so much more than in a tunnel!

If you do take the U4 then I'd stay on until Kettenbrückengasse which is right next to the market.

The homepage link defaults to German so you have to click the English tab at the top right of the page.
