How to get there?
By Public Transport
Vienna International Airport: http://www.viennaairport.com
There is a bus connection form the Airport to the temporary train station in the South ‘Wien Meidling‘ (direction ‘Wien Westbahnhof‘ via Meidling Hbf.) leaving from the arrival area at the airport.
Graz Airport: http://www.flughafen-graz.at
For bus connections checkout: http://www.verbundlinie.at
Vienna is getting a new central train station. Therefore the station Südbahnhof is closed. Since then the international railroad traffic to the South is carried out mostly via the station Wien Meidling.
If you want to transfer from Westbahnhof to Station Wien Meidling, take the U6 line in direction Siebenhirten or Alterlaa. Meidling station is only 4 stops from Westbahnhof (less than 10 minutes). The tricky part of the transfer is that the metro station at Bahnhof Meidling is not called Bahnhof Meidling. The station where you must get off the U-Bahn is Philadephiabrücke (Philadelphia Bridge).
There are trains from Wien Meidling to Friedberg Stmk and Dechantskirchen. There we will pick you up if you let us know the time of your arrival. http://fahrplan.oebb.at
