There is a direct connection between both cities. It takes approximately 1 hour to get from one central station to another. Bratislava's central station is called Bratislava - hlavná stanica, often shortened to Bratislava- hl. st. in some occasions. In Vienna you will get to the newly built Wien Hauptbahnhof central station.
Return ticket valid for city transport within Vienna "Wien Ticket + Z 100"
Ticket valid 1 week
Ticket valid 1 month
You can buy tickets directly on the Internet using the official Austrian Rail website [ENG]. You just choose a specific date, and pay by credit card. As soon as you have bought the ticket, you have 3 days to make your journey. For example if today is Ocotober 28th and you buy you ticket for the November 10th, you can realize your journey whether on November 10th, 11th or 12th. Then you have 16 more days to use your ticket for the return journey. If you buy a ticket valid also for the city transport within Vienna, it is valid only till midnight of the day you marked it in the train. You do not have to mark it again in the Vienna's city transport. Visit official Slovak Rail webpage for more information (SK)
Tickets valid one week or one month give you the opportunity to travel there and back multiple times within this time period.
From Vienna Hauptbahnhof the train departs every one hour from 5:20 to 22:21. The very last train goes around 0:40 but does not arrive to the Bratislava central station, but Bratislava - Petržalka train station. From here you would have to take a bus number 80 to get to the city center, or 93 to get to the Central train station.
From Bratislava to Vienna there is also departure every hour beginning at 4:24 with the last departure at 22:42.
For more specific times of departure visit the Slovak Rail Timetables (EN) and follow the truck number 100 "Bratislava - Marchegg - (Gänserndorf ) - Wien a späť".
there is a direct bus going from Vienna to Trenčín (takes 3h20m). Depends on from wich part of Vienna do you go. You can also use train to Bratislava and then to Trenčín - it is also quite fast and comfortable.
I am travelling by train to Bratislava from Vienna. I'm a bit confused about the prices. According to the Austrian Rail website (www.oebb.at/.../index.jsp), a round-trip ticket is just 15 euros per person. However, when I try to search for fares on the OBB Ticketshop, they quote me 31.60 one-way for two people (one adult and one youth
Sorry, the message got cut off! I'm wondering if there are any restrictions on the EURegio ticket to explain why it is cheaper? The website stated "For connections from and to Vienna, you can use the ticket either via Vienna Simmering/Marchegg, via Gänserndorf/Marchegg or Bruck an der Leitha/Kittsee. The ticket is valid on all ÖBB local trains in Vienna and to all stations in the city region of Bratislava." Does this mean the EURegio ticket cannot be used for the REX Regional Express trains? Thank you!
two(2) of us will be going to Bratislava on June 12 from Vienna.
a. which train station in Vienna that we should be going to.
b. what is the name of the train station in Bratislava ? We cant seem to find it in the map provided by Tourism Board in website.
c. How far is the train station to the Old Town Centre. Is it possible to take a slow walk and admire the city surroundings towards the Old Town, or is it just basic highway and better to take a bus or tram.
d. If it is the bus, what number should we take
e. If it is the tram, can you advise us how ?
thank you for your generous support in this matters.
Hello looi ky,
in Vienna, you should go to Vienna Hauptbahnhof (old name is Sudbahnhof) - it is a central station.
Bratislava's central train station is called Hlavna stanica (often shortened to Hl. st.). There is another direct connection arriving to Bratislava Petrzalka, but do not follow this line.
As you arrive to Bratislava Hl. st., I suggest you to take a bus to get to the city centre. It is possible to go by walk, but nothing interesting could be found on that way. So take a bus number 83, 84, 93, 184 or trolleybus number 212. It will take you to "Hodžovo nám." bus station, which is just in the city center. The ride will not take more than 10 minutes, but do not forget to buy a ticket in one of the yellow ticket machines - ticket valid for 15 minutes is enough and costs 0.70€.
If you have any other questions, please ask.
there is no train connecting Bratislava airport with Vienna, however, there is a direct bus connection departing every 30-60 minutes. It costs 7-10 EUR depending on the provider.
Have a safe trip
I do have appointment at Vienna at jauresgasse st. At 10:30 am .on 4 th of march .what is time table from Bratislava to Vienna & duration & what is ticket fee round trip same day & wich station near to this address & wich transportation from the station . Thanks
I and 2 friends of me want to go to vienna on 21.3.2013 and then go to bratislava on 23.3.2013 and bant to vienna on 24.3.2013.
i have searched by oebb.at and i can't faound any ticket which cost 13 euro for that.
can you help me to make sure for ticket price ?
I do not know why these prices differ, but Slovak official web site declares the prices, as are written here: www.slovakrail.sk/...arify.html . Buy a ticket directly on station to ensure lower price :)
Need to get train from Bratislava to Vienna on 10.3.13. to go to Spanish Riding School performance at 11.00am.
Do the trains run on Sundays?
How do we get from Wien Hauptbgahnhof to the Riding school?
How much time should we allow to get there?
take a train departing at 8:30 from Bratislava central train station. 9:30 you will arrive to Vienna. Take U1 metro line and take off at "Stephansplatz" (5 minutes). Then you will need to walk 10 minutes to "Michaelerplatz", where the Riding school takes place. See http://goo.gl/maps/EKt9w for walking instructions.
odporucam Ti ist z Petrzalskej vlakovej stanice. Vlak odchadza kazde dve hodiny od 6:30 do 16:30. Odvezies sa do Viedenskej stanice "Wien Meidling", kde prestupis na vlak priamo do Villachu. Ten odchadza tiez kazde 2 hodiny od 8:30 do 18:30 (takze vo Viedni mas cca 50min na prestup). Urcite si pozri cp.atlas.sk/.../spojenie/ ak chces najst presne spojenie.
in Vienna the train station is called Wien Hauptbahnhof (of sometimes still called Sudbahnhof). Direct train departs to Bratislava every hour. You can buy tickets online here: https://ticketing.oebb.at/inet/pub/en/ticket , however, I suggest you to buy them directly on the train station - they should be cheaper.
We plan to visit Vienna for 3 weeks in March, and will travel by train via Bratislava. How long are valid these return tickets from Bratislava to Vienna? Two weeks? Because we have to go from Bratislava to Vienna on 2nd of March and then return back from Vienna to Bratislava on 26 of March. Thus, I'm thinking, what tickets we should buy-return or one-way...
Dear admin :), i was trying to simulate buying a train ticket for the route vienna-bratislava on 19.04.2013 and return same day, on OBB site, and the price that resulted was about 60 eur roundtrip. can you give me an estimate price for the above? according to the info found here, on your site, a rountrip ticket is 17 EUR and, as i gather, it includes public transportation in Vienna - which would be great! Thank you in advance for your response. Claudia
I am sure if you buy this ticket directly on the station, you would get a price as written on this site: around 17€.
There is a special fare to travel from Vienna to Bratislava and MAYBE, they are not shown on the OBB site. However, try simulating route from Wien Hauptbahnof to Bratislava hl. st. - you should get similar prices, as I write here, not 60€ :). Or please write me how do you fill in the form.
I am trying to buy return tickets from bratislava hl.st. to Vienna Hauptbahnhof online, for next week. I can't print the tickets at home-will I be able to get them from the ticket machine at Bratislava or will the ticket office be open?
did you already buy it? If no, you can buy tickets directly on the station for sure. If have already bought it, I think you should find a way how to print it as there is probably no \"pick up at the desk\".
Hi, I will have to go from Vienna to Bratislava and return on the same day on 6th Feb. Do you know where exactly I can buy the ticket at Vienna station? Can I buy it at one of the ticket machines or only over the counter?
Also, could you tell me how I can get from Bratislava train station to either Polus City Center or Aupark shopping centres using public transport?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
I am pretty sure there are ticket machines.
If you arrive to Bratislava Petržalka station, you can go easily to AuPark using bus number 80, 91, 93, 94. To go to Polus take bus number 94 and change to tram number 2 or 4 at Vazovova stop. Public transport station is right in front of a train station.
If you arrive to Bratislava Hlavná Stanica (main train station), take bus number 83, 84, 94 to get to Aupark or whichever bus directing to Trnavské mýto stop and change there to tram number 2 or 4.
We will be in Vienna in one week and I was wondering what the cost for a train ticket would be round trip to Bratislavia and what train station do we go to in Vienna also how much does i cost to get to the city centre of Bratislavia and what is the currency ?
the return ticket costs 13€ and you have to buy it directly on the station. The train departs from Wien Hauptbahnhof (central train station) and arrives to either Bratislava-Petržalka (suburb) or to Bratislava - Hl. st. (central train station). I suggest you to take a train to central train station from where you will get to the city center within 10 minutes. You will need to buy a public transport ticket valid for 1 hour (so you can change), which costs 0.90€. A currency is €.
Will be travelling from Budapest-bratislava-vienna and then return in that order early feb and just trying to firm up transport details.
The only vague information we are having trouble with is where are we shot out in Vienna? Somewhere is telling us part of the central station subaunof is still open, other places are saying we will arrive at a completely different station?!?
Can you give me a confident answer where the service will be running to and from? Other than that considering hydrofoil.
you will arrive at Wien Hbf (Hauptbahnhof), which is a newly opened central train station in Vienna, just a few meters away from the old one called Sudbahnhof. So you will travel from Bratislava central train station to Vienna central train station.
Hydrofil is more a tourist attraction than a regular transport, as the price is higher and takes more time. Moreover, it does not shuffle during the winter.
Four of us ( all four senior women) will need to travel from Vienna to Piestany on July 29, 2013 and then from Piestany to Budapest on July 31, 2013. What would be the fastest and most economical way to make these two legs of our trip? Thanks in advance for your help!
Hello, I am flying to Vienna in March with some friends & would like to visit Bratislava as it is so close.
We are thinking of getting the train from Vienna airport to Bratislava & would like some information on the best option for a ticket valid for 3 days return journey with the cost options.
Am I correct that the single journey would cost Euro 14.6 each way or Euro 31 for an unlimited 1 week travel ticket.
Do the trains from Vienna airport to Bratislava depart once an hour?
Any information that you can provide would be most helpful.
if you want to go from Vienna Airport to Bratislava, use a bus. It costs less than 8€ per ride and takes one hour to get to the city center. Buses depart every 30 minutes or 1 hour.
If you want to use a train, you will have to get to the Vienna main train station. From here you can use a train to Bratislava. It costs around 13€. You should use the ticket within 3 days since you bought it (but better is to buy just before departure) and make a return ride within 16 days. Train depart every hour.
I am sorry, but there is no direct train or bus connection between Wien airport and Bratislava train station.
However, there is a bus departing from Wien Airport and arriving to Bratislava main bus station (Bratislava, AS). From here you take a bus number 21 or trolleybus number 210. They depart every 10 minutes and the journey takes 15 minutes. Do not forget to buy a 15-minute ticket for 0,70€ and mark it in a bus.
My daughter bought the tickets for us in berlin.Is there a specialoffice on the Hl.St. to which she can send these tickets where we can get them(poste restante to be called for).Yours sincerely Valentina,Ukraine
I am not sure if I understand your situation. Why do you need to send the tickets to the Bratislava Main station? You can reply me directly to email@example.com so that you do not have to write it publicly here :)
