Vienna Austria Tourist Info and City Guide

Vienna's new central train station is called Vienna Hauptbahnhof (Vienna Main Train Station).  It is also referred to as Vienna Hbf (or Wien Hbf in German).

This impressive station opened in December 2015 and handles all international trains and OBB (state owned) domestic trains.

Vienna Hauptbahnhof was designed to replace three old stations (Westbahnhof, Ostbahnhof and Sudbahnhof) with a single through station.

3. Vienna Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof (used for a few north-bound trains)
