Travel In Austria

Austria by Road

All the major Austrian cities are connected by motorway, if you need to get somewhere quickly, but driving on Austria's national roads is always more interesting.

If you bring your own car to Austria, and intend to drive on the motorways, you will need to buy a vignette -- available from service stations -- and stick it in your window.

Vignettes can be bought for ten days, one month, two months or a year. There are also tolls on some of the tunnels, but you may prefer to drive over the passes in the summer months.

Austria by Train

Austria connects well with all of Europe's major cities. Timetables.

Austria by Boat
