Travel to Austria
- By car — Please note that there is a charge for using Austrian motorways and expressways. A ‘vignette’ toll sticker must be bought for all vehicles of up to 3.5 tons maximum permitted total weight – cars, motorbikes and light campervans are required to display a vignette.
- By train — The main railway station in Graz is one of the most important stations in Austria and is not far from the Graz city centre, which can be reached by tramlines 1,3,6 and 7 in a few minutes. There are direct train and coach connections for example from Vienna, Salzburg, Linz, Innsbruck, Klagenfurt, Munich, Stuttgart and Frankfurt. Taking the train from Vienna main station to Graz main station takes just 2:35 hrs, with a train running every hour. And the best of it is that you will enjoy a pittoresque ride of 41 km across the Semmering mountains, a UNESCO world heritage site dating back to 1854. Please check the website of Austrian Railways ÖBB.
- By plane — In recent years the modern airport of Graz has become a major transport hub. About a million passengers fly into Graz every year. Visitors to Graz particularly appreciate the airport’s very close proximity to the city centre with good transport connections. Direct international flights include connections such as Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Munich, Zurich, Amsterdam, Istanbul, Berlin, and Palma de Mallorca. Please check the website of Graz Airport.
