Frequently Asked Questions

Important information regarding your stay at Pension Residenz in Vienna.

Parking and how to reach us with public transport:


Do you have parking places? How much do they cost?

Parking is possible in a nearby parking garage (Votivparkgarage), where you can park with our reduced price tickets for Euro 20,- per day. Please ask us at arrival about parking.

How to best reach us from Vienna Airport with public transport?

Once you have arrived after a hopefully relaxing flight at the Vienna Airport, you can go by train “S7”, until you arrive at station “Praterstern”. Please make sure you are going in the direction of Vienna. Once you have arrived at “Praterstern”, you can go by underground line “U2” (purple line), direction “Karlsplatz”, until you arrive at station “Rathaus”. From there you can walk to us in around 5 minutes.

Please note that the train is only running until around 11pm. If you are going to arrive later, you can go by one of the Taxis that are available at the airport at all times of the day. The fare is around EUR 40,- from the airport to our place.

How to best reach us from the central railroad station with public transport?

Once you have arrived after a hopefully relaxing journey at the central railroad station (Hauptbahnhof), you can take the tram line “D”, direction “Nußdorf”, until station “Rathaus”. From there you can walk to us in around 5 minutes.

Alternatively you can go by underground from the central railroad station (Haupbahnhof). First you need to go by underground line U1 (red line), direction “Leopoldau”. Once you arrived at station “Karlsplatz”, you need to change to underground line U2 (purple line), direction “Seestadt” and go with it until you arrive at station “Rathaus”. Again it’s only a few minutes waling distance from there.
