Airport Transfer

The Bratislava Airport is served mainly by low cost carriers.

Due to close proximity of much larger Vienna International Airport, we advise that you search for more convenient options for flights landing at nearby Vienna Airport (VIE). From Vienna you can take the following travel options to Bratislava.

From Vienna Bratislava is only an hour away!


Bus

Direct from Vienna’s International Airport at Schwechat, for the price of a few euros a bus will bring you to Bratislava’s main bus station in about an hour; buses leave at one- to two-hour intervals close to the half-hour. Some buses also run from Vienna city centre.

Participants can buy online bus tickets from the Vienna Airport (“Wien, Flughafen Wien” in German language) to Bratislava Central Bus Station (“Autobusova stanica Mlynske Nivy” or “Bratislava, AS” in Slovak) (and back to the Vienna Airport) at the following link: https://www.slovaklines.sk/vienna/discover-vienna-with-slovak-lines.html


Taxi

You can book your airport transfer to/from Vienna Airport (VIE) in taxi cab, minibus for all numbers of passengers. Links to taxi companies can be found here: http://www.viennaairport.com/en/passengers/arrival__parking/taxis__limousines.


Train

A very simple and inexpensive way to travel. Trains run via two different routes many times all day (most of them from Vienna’s Sudbahnhof, some from Westbahnhof). Either route, however, brings you to a train station (in Slovak language “Hlavna stanica” or abbreviation “hl. st.”) that is close to Bratislava’s historical centre, well-connected by public transport and costs less than 10 euros. Train connections and tickets you can find here: http://en.rail.cc/train-connection/vienna-bratislava/austria-slovakia/294


By Car

Although parking is a challenge in the city centres of both Vienna and Bratislava, of course it is the only way to get to some of the choicest locations. The main Austrian routes into Bratislava are routes A4 / A6 or B9.

By Boat

This mode of travel most likely to leave a lasting impression, along the grand Danube, runs from early April to late September, with some lines running in October as well.


Visa Information
