Take a train from the airport to either Hauptbahnhof or Praterstern - whichever train comes first (one or other every 15 mins). At Hauptbahnhof or Praterstern change to U1 line to Nestroyplatz station. Cost €4.20 per person.

thanks for the information. Am I supposed to get the tickets in advance or buy them inside the train?

In advance from the ÖBB counter in the arrivals hall or from the numerous ticket machines on the way to the platforms. Also most tickets need validating in the little blue boxes before boarding the train.

We arrived home yesterday from Vienna. When you arrive at the airport go to the OBB desk in arrivals. Ask for a city transport pass (we wanted 72 hours but it was the same price to buy a weekly ticket and covers buses, trams and underground trains). Buy your train ticket into the city from the sameperson - you will only have to pay for one zone on the train if you have the transport pass. They were really helpful. Use the Railjet normal train and not the CAT, it’s cheaper!

The weekly pass runs strictly from one Monday to the next Monday so isn't suitable for all stays.

You can't even validate/stamp public transport tickets, if they are bought for immediate use.

As mentioned above, buy from the ÖBB ticket counter in the arrivals hall (if you arrive during normal business hours and if the line is not terribly long) or from one of the ticket vending machines.

From Praterstern Station, where the S7 train goes to, you could actually walk to Nestroyplatz.

As Michael says, tickets for immediate use don’t need to be validated. If you’re unsure validate it anyway!

These tickets do not even fit into the slots of the ticket validators.

@ Michael

So immediate use tickets are larger than the usual ones? I don’t ever buy them as I get passes, but that must mean ticket machines have different size blank tickets in them.
