Hi Patrick,

if you are able to catch a bus at 19:30 from Vienna airport, you will get to Bratislava at 20:30. At 20:35 departs a bus to Nitra.

Or even better, you can catch a direct bus from Vienna airport to Nitra using .

The date is, however, still quite far so you are not able to buy tickets yet. But to answer your question, you will not need to overnight in Bratislava.

Have a nice trip :)

Hi Julia,

I think in this cas you should take a bus. It departs at 22:45 every day directly from Bratislava airport and takes you to Vienna city center within 80 minutes. Bus company is called Blaguss.

Have a safe trip :)
