Killing time at Südbahnhof Train Station


I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for killing about 5 hours at Südbahnhof Train Station? Is there internet cafe or access somewhere near?

I would love for suggestions for anywhere good to see or eat nearby, but I will be lugging along with me a large suitcase (on wheels, thankfully).

Many thanks

Vienna's Railway Station South (East) is located moreless centrally, therefore leaving would be a good idea to explore the beauty of this city. Very close is Belvedere Palace, but you can board tram D and ride to the city center. Luggage storage shoud be available.

The Sudbahnhof does have lockers to store your luggage.

As Mikey mentions, the streetcar D is just across the street from the main entrance to the train station. A 10 minute ride directly into the city center.

cost 1,50 euro- machine to buy tickets is in the station.

You can get off at the Oper or Burgring stop and look at the sights. You would be near to the major sights of the Hofburg Palace etc.

The Belvedere is very nice and just across the street from the station but would not occupy the time you have.
