Directions to IMBA

Arriving by plane

Vienna's International Airport is located about 19 kilometres southeast of IMBA and is connected by rail, bus and a motorway. 

There are two train connections from the Airport to the City. The metropolitan railway ("S7" = line No. 907 WIEN FLORIDSDORF – FLUGHAFEN WIEN – WOLFSTHAL and back; which usually runs every 30 minutes and takes 19 minutes to travel); and the City Airport Train (CAT), as well as a shuttle bus or taxis.

Regional train S7: The metropolitan railway S7 stops at “St. Marx/Vienna Biocenter”, which is 200 metres from IMBA. When embarking at the airport, the direction is given as “Floridsdorf”. The S7 is generally the fastest and cheapest public transport link to IMBA. 

Express Train CAT: The CAT is an express train, but it only stops downtown at “Wien Mitte/Landstraße”, so a second connection is required to get to IMBA: take the 74A bus to the stop “St. Marx”. Combined, the journey may take longer than the S7. 

Shuttle Bus: Alternatively, you can take a Vienna Airport Lines shuttle bus, which will take you to Vienna's central train station (Hauptbahnhof Wien). From there, the No.18 tram (direction “Schlachthausgasse”) will take you to the stop “Viehmarktgasse”, around the corner from IMBA.

Taxi: If you catch a taxi from the airport to IMBA, the ride will take about 20 minutes and costs around 35 EURO.

Arriving by train

Travelling to Vienna by train, you will most probably arrive at one of the city’s two main train stations, either “Wien Hauptbahnhof” or the Vienna Western Train Station – “Westbahnhof”.

From “Wien Hauptbahnhof”, the No.18 tram (direction “Schlachthausgasse”) will take you to the stop “Viehmarktgasse”, around the corner from IMBA. The trip should take under 10 minutes.

Also from “Westbahnhof” the No.18 tram (direction “Schlachthausgasse”) will take you to the stop “Viehmarktgasse”. The travelling time from Westbahnhof is about 25 minutes.

Arriving by car

If you arrive via the motorway A23, take the exit called “St. Marx”. Drivers coming via the A4 should exit at “Knoten Prater”.
