How to get from Vienna to Brno ?

The trip from Vienna airport to Brno takes 2.5-3 hours approximately.

By bus

Student Agency travels several times a day between Vienna and Brno. The ticket from the airport costs 310 CZK (~12.70 EUR), or 16 EUR if you pay in cash in euros. (Tickets from Wienna proper cost half of these prices.)

It is wise to buy a ticket in advance, otherwise you can find out there are no remaining seats in the bus. (And you get better price.) Unfortunately, the eshop in in Czech only; but you may try our manual to hack it anyway.

Timetable can be found here. SA operates big yellow buses which depart from the arrivals terminal at Vienna airport, across NH hotel and next to the taxis.

Other companies that travel from Vienna to Brno are:

  • Tourbus - 200 CZK, less luxury, a bit slower, arrives at UAN Zvonarka
  • Eurolines - no direct connections to the airport

By train

Vienna -> Brno

OBB sells international tickets on-line at https://ticket.oebb.at/bin/frame_ticket.pl?ticket=jticket.pl

Type in "Flughafen Wien" (that is Vienna Airport), "Brno", select a date, do not select any return date, select Credit card type with , and "Suchen". Then select one of the offered times of departure. After a while, you should become a proud holder of an electronic ticket.

Brno -> Vienna

Czech railways offer the ticket from Brno to Wien Südbahnhof for EUR 9. (They also offer return ticket for EUR 18, but it cannot be used in direction Vienna->Brno unless the stamps on it prove that the Brno->Vienna part has been consumed.)

And no, I have no idea how far is Wien Südbahnhof from the centre or the airport, consult the map.

To get the EUR 9 ticket, you have to buy it at least 3 days in advance in their Czech-speaking e-shop; you may try this manual.
