Traveling to and in Vienna

If you are not from Vienna, we recommend using public transportation such as buses or train to make your journey to the VCM as climate-neutral as possible. 

ÖBB Rail Tours offers an affordable VCM package for train travel and overnight stay with breakfast in Vienna.

In Vienna, the best way to get to the VCM and wherever you want is by public transport. You can find out more about timetables and buying tickets at and in the WienMobil App.

With the Vienna City Card you can take advantage of many tourist benefits and travel free on public transport. You can find more information at: 

On race day in Vienna

How to get to the race number pick-up / Vienna Sports World
  • Marx Halle, Karl-Farkas-Gasse 19, 1030 Vienna
  • Accessibility by public transport, car, Google Maps
How to get to the start on Sunday
Marathon, Wiener Städtische half marathon and Powerade relay marathon
  • Start area Wagramer Straße, 1220 Vienna
Think about the best way to get to the start: by public transport, on foot, by bike or, if necessary, by car (to the Park & Ride facilities at the U2 underground station in 1220 Vienna).

The most important way to get there is the underground line U1 with the stations Vienna International Centre and Alte Donau.

The WienMobil app for Android and iPhones helps you plan your journey.It may be easier for you to take alternative routes to the U1 underground line:
  • U6 Floridsdorf & tram 25 Kagran
  • U2 Donaustadtbrücke & bus 93A Kagran
The underground lines U1, U2, U3 and U4 will run at more frequent intervals on 21 April. Instead of every five minutes, the most important feeder line U1 will run at two-and-a-half-minute intervals. To make this possible, 30 underground drivers will join the existing team on Sundays.

In the event of a foreseeable increase in the flow of passengers, underground trains do not stop at individual stations and travel through to the next station. The stations Donauinsel, Vienna International Centre and Alte Donau are primarily affected by this event-related regulation. The flow of passengers is controlled by Wiener Linien.
