"Train from Vienna" By Train Tip by monkeytrousers

By Train, Bratislava: 57 reviews and 56 photos

I went to Bratislava by train for the day from Vienna. There were trains at fairly regular intervals going both ways so catching one on time wasn't much of an issue.

A day return ticket cost me 14 euros and the journey took about an hour if I remember correctly. Trains straight through mostly depart from Wien Sudbanhof and also stop at Wien Summering. I think there are a couple of trains straight through from Westbanhof but they are not as frequent.

My guidebook said you have to walk to town from the train station but that really isnt so. I felt like a walk and in reality it was only about 20mins to the old town from the train station in Bratislava. Head out of the station and down the road in front of you. Take a right and then head left following the main road (Stefanikova). Keep heading down this road past a large palace and you should start to see signs for the old town and the castle. The old town is basically the other side of the major junction in front of the palace.
