What is the best public transit from Sudbahnhof ?

Next August I will be in Vienna from Bratislava by train and I would like to know what is the best way to go from Sudbahnhof train station to Schwedenplatz by public transport?

Next question is,can I buy Combi tickets for Melk/Abbey/boat & Krems from Sudbahnhof station ticket boot?

Thanks so much.

Easy, just take the U1 line from Sudbahnhof to Schwedenplatz (5 stops). I am sure you can buy tickets at Sudbahnhof.

Südbahnhof does not exist anymore! The station was demolished in order to make space for the new Vienna Main Train Station (Wien Hauptbahnhof) where trains from Bratislava still call (and sometimes terminate). The abovementioned subway station actually is "Südtiroler Platz" (not Südbahnhof) and serves the station. You can buy all kinds of tickets at manned train stations.

Well being really pedantic the station is currently called "Südtiroler Platz-Hauptbahnhof". No doubt it will change again!

Ugg, I had a moment. In my head it still is Sudbahnhof. Hauptbahnhof-Sudtirolerplatz it is! I go through the station twice everyday, so you'd think I'd remember.

If you take the train from Bratislava's main train station (Hlavna Stanica), then you could consider deboarding at other stops within the Vienna Area such as Wien-Stadlau (transfer to subway line U2) or Wien-Simmering (transfer to subway line U3). Aforementioned interchanges are located prior to Wien-Hauptbahnhof and could work as shortcut depending on your actual final destination.

Where is your hotel/accommodation?

Thanks to all of you for your speedy replies.

About the 72 hours travel card,is it true that it starts at the time you validate it and ends in 72 hr ? so if I validate it @ 15.00 on Thursday it will expires on Sunday @ 14.59 ? and I have to be at my destination by the expire time?

thanks.

Hi

I will be traveling from Bratislava to Vienna too. The hotel I'm staying at is beside the Rathaus U station which is on the U2 line. Would I be best getting off at Wein Stadlau to make the journey quicker?

Any help appreciated!

@ GenMalta

You may be better getting a weekly card. It will be valid from when you get it until 09:00 on the MONDAY morning, but only costs €0.40 more than a 72 hour card.
