Where to stay near WIEN WESTBAHNHOF (Station)
The Schönbrunn Palace, or Schönbrunn Castle, is one of the main landmarks in Vienna. The must-see summer palace of the Hapsburgs looks over the town to the southwest of the railway station and is right up there with the themes and forms of the famous Hofburg Palace of the city. There is plenty on site for all visitors, including families, with two palaces—one overlooking the other—extensive gardens, and a zoo. Interior highlights include the Hall of Mirrors and the Great Gallery. The U-Bahn runs here. Mariahilferstraße
This is the main shopping street in the city. Locally known as Mahu, it runs just below the train station on toward the Innere Stadt, and is loaded with shops and stores selling all kinds of things, from fashion and electronics, to books and tourist souvenirs. This is a good place to be based—the Leonardo Hotel Vienna is close by—as it features many eye-pleasing Gründerzeit period houses and tasty street cafés. Maria vom Siege
Just to the south of the Western Railway Station is this pretty church which is noted for its dark brick form, stunning spires, and large cupola. Though not to the grand scale of the might Vienna cathedrals and palaces, it is nonetheless an intriguing sight and it doesn’t suffer from the same tourist crowds as the more popular city draws. Maria vom Siege can be seen from the Schönbrunn and Imperial Palaces, too. Eating and drinking and shopping nearbyThe station itself has a number of restaurants and takeouts with reasonably priced food, plus there is a mini-mart on site. The area is home to pizzerias and Chinese restaurants, while the likes of the classy Westbahn Hotel have high quality eating. Aussere Mariahilferstrasse—the western end of the famous Mariahilferstrasse—is the main shopping area here. This street has some great eating though more happening nightlife is had farther east, into the Mariahilf district.Public transportThis is one of the two main rail stations serving Vienna and is thus a main hub of transport. There’s also a local S-Bahn line, along with the two U-Bahn lines, U3 and U6, while half-a-dozen tram lines call in at Europaplatz. You can walk to the Innere Stadt where the bulk of the historic attractions are situated in around 30 minutes, although the U-Bahn line U3 gets you into the centre in mere minutes.
