    Most of the main sights in Vienna’s historic center are located on the popular Ring Tram route. The U-Bahn is generally the quickest way to get around. It operates seven days a week from around 05:30 to 00:30. A 24-hour service runs on weekends and public holidays.
    There are a number of ticket options ranging from a single ticket (2.40 EUR) to 24-hour (8 EUR) and 48-hour (14.10 EUR) tickets. Tickets are valid for all public transportation—buses, trams, and the subway. You’ll need to punch your ticket before entering the boarding area at U-Bahn stops, but for buses and trams, you punch it on board.

    It’s highly efficient, modern, punctual and seamless. We used 48 hour pass and highly recommend it.

    Fast as anything to get you from the city centre to the airport. Clean, efficient trains every 15 minutes. Puts other cities transport to shame.

    One thing. It claims you can check in your bags in Vienna, so you can travel hassle free. This is true but only for certain airlines. We travelled with BA and were stuck with our bags for hours.

    Large number of trams and stops around Vienna. Easy to buy a (very good value) timed ticket that lasts a few days and get on & off as many time as you like around the city. Generally trams clean and not overcrowded, reliable and on time apart from 1 that vanished from the timing screens.

    My first time on Westbahn from Munich to Vienna, due to strikes in Germany.

    Booked First Class. Clear verdict, not worth the money. Everyone is doing fine with Standard, no obvious advantage compared to the other classes and not what you would expect compared to OeBB or DB where First Class makes a difference in terms of comfort.

    Layout is two floors. Luggage can only be stored downstairs or between chairs for medium sized suitcases. I personally would not like to store luggage completely out of sight. Overhead storage is not usable, to small even for cabine sizes luggage.

    Toilets are quite far away and incurred waiting time, I felt there are not enough toilets. Medium dirty, as you would expect in a train with just enough toilets. In general I would say not the most comfortable trains, feels more bumpy than other rides.

    No bistro but a snack vendor machine with a selection of sandwiches and some snacks. The machine was broken but the very attentive staff found a creative solution, so at least I got some potato chips.

    As far as I know Westbahn uses a dynamic pricing system. So if you can land a good deal - go for it, don't pay up for first class, save the money for the (surprisingly) acceptable "Gemischte Satz".

    My twin brother Stephen and I had just had a great afternoon exploring around the leafy and affluent 13th district ( Hietzing District ) when we headed to Hietzing Ubahn Station.
    A cool looking station ,modern ,there's some nice cafés in here ,we enjoyed coffee and cake in Spröck Heitzing Ubahn which was a lovely experience ,station itself is superb ,a good transport hub ,Ubahns run on time and the station is well maintained ,it's well worth checking out if you're in the area and easy to locate on Hietzinger Hauptstraße.
