Taxi from train statio

There are 5 of us arriving tomorrow on the train. Looks like we had book a taxi on line for 37€. 15 minutes or so. Is it worth booking ahead?

From which station and where to?

Will you have a lot of luggage?

Do not book online. €37 is what you'd pay from the airport and is way too much for the 10 minute journey from the Hauptbahnhof. Just look for a larger size taxi on the rank outside the station. Even two smaller taxis would be less than €37!

The regular taxi fare should not exceed 10 EUR because the distance is fairly short.

I find advising itineraries really difficult as everyone is different. The tourist board website is excellent. If you haven't already got a guide book I suggest you use it to research.

www.wien.info

I like this three day itinerary from them:

Or look at these Frommer's itineraries:
