How to get to Austria?

Austria has a state of the art international airport known as Vienna International airport. It is situated 18km southeast of Vienna’s center, in a place known as Schwechat. It is the biggest and the busiest in Austria, being able to handle wide-body aircraft.

There are plenty of ground transport means to choose from. Your choice will depend on your budget, tastes and preferences, and your destination too. They include;

  • Shuttle buses
  • Hotel shuttles
  • Trains
  • Private limousines

Car rental is another option, and perhaps the best of all. This is because cheap car hire companies are available in large numbers across the country. Additionally it would be the wisest decision to rent a car, because it gives you the freedom to tour the country as you like.

Taxis are good, and while they might take you to your exact destination, they are more expensive. Compared to car rental, taxis do not give you the freedom to tour at your own pace, and if they might, you will pay stiff fees for it.

Austria uses the Euro. It is possible to change your currency at the airport, but the rates are likely to be much higher. If possible, make a point of exchanging your currency online if you must use it at the airport when paying for services like car rental or taxis. Alternatively, pay for these services online and exchange you currency in banks and exchange bureaus at the city.

Do I expect to have any unique experiences in Austria?

Austria is a magnificent country as far as tourism is concerned. It all depends on what type of tourist you are. If you have a passion for tourism, there are numerous Rustic farm house museums that will be waiting for you. Vienna also boasts of plenty of opera and concerts that are certain to give you an experience of a lifetime.
