salzburg to vienna airport

We are spending the last leg of our Europe vacation I salzburg slazburg. We are flying out from vienna. Out flgt is on 14 th Aug at 10.30 night. We are planning to take a train from salzburg and go straight to the airport. Would like to know if this is practical and if so, what is the advised time. Is there a train that takes us into the airport if not the nearest airport.

We are a family with 2 kids aged 5 and 8.

Pls advice.

Thanks

keerthi.

The train from Salzburg to Vienna Westbahnhof takes around 2 1/2 hours and from there you can take bus to airport which takes another 45 minutes depending on traffic. You will have to leave Salzburg at 3 pm - check www.oebb.at.

You can get away with a little later than that:

Westbahn train from Salzburg at 16:48 arriving Vienna at 19:20

or

OeBB train from Salzburg at 17:02 arriving Vienna 19:24

Then Airport bus from Westbahnhof at 19:40 arriving at the airport at 20:25 a good two hours before your flight.

Beside ÖBB (www.oebb.at/en) there is an other (private) railway operator serving the Salzburg-Vienna route, namely WESTBAHN (www.westbahn.at). For tourists they are better as you get good fare without the necessity to book in advance.
