Vienna on foot

10,000 steps per day – easy? Not necessarily, especially if you are a passive commuter, someone who relies on mass transit…….. BUT you can change that. How? By walking one station instead of waiting for the U-bahn, bus or tram. You’ll not only enjoy the benefits of walking but also our beautiful city, and of course you are much faster on foot!

Below you’ll find the distance (km, time and steps) it takes to walk (on avg) from one station to the next.

The first attachment (2 1/2 pages long) focuses on 10 main U-bahn “hub” stations (Praterstern, Westbahnhof, Wien Mitte, Volkstheater, Karlsplatz,…….), and lists their nearest u bahn stop: waiting bus (3) Special Edit Ubahn stop walking distances

Don’t miss the U-Bahn map listing the walking distance in minutes between each U-Bahn station published by the Mobilitätsagentur WienMobAgentur: Final Plan UBahn Distance in Minutes

The second attachment focuses on 3 bus lines, and lists all the walking distances (km, time and steps) between all stations services by these bus lines. If you are interested in a detailed summary of ALL bus lines (in Vienna) feel free to contact me. Special Edit Bus stop walking distances

The third attachment focuses on trams, and lists the majority of tram stops serviced by 2 tram lines, and a few selected stops by other tram lines. If you are interested in a detailed summary of ALL tram lines (in Vienna) feel free to contact me. Special Edit Tram stop walking distances

And don’t forget when comparing waiting time with walking time, the bus, tram or underground, too, takes time to get from one station to the next. So, when running a “cost-benefit” analysis, don’t neglect travel time but also don’t overlook the benefits of walking!
