Vienna Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Vienna Airport! Then drive to Vienna’s beautiful Inner City and check out the old imperial architecture, palaces, and churches. Ringstrasse, or Ring Road, offers a variety of museums and attractions. Take your rental to other neighborhoods like Leopoldstadt and Karmeliterviertel—each has its own unique character and is worth a visit.

What they say about Vienna really is true: it’s a city of culture. There’s always so much going on and in so many beautiful venues. See a play, go to the opera, attend a classical music concert, check out a festival, or see an art house film. It’s also a great place to eat, whether you choose Viennese schnitzels, sausages or pancakes. And of course there’s Vienna’s coffee house culture—don’t miss the excellent coffee and atmosphere.

Vienna’s a blast, but the entire region has so much to offer. Get a longer term rental and explore the rest of Austria, whether east to Salzburg and the Alps or south to Graz and Karynthia. Other European capitals like Bratislava and Budapest are close by. And why not drive your rental even further to Croatia and other Balkan countries for a different, but equally special experience? You can even pick up your car at Vienna Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure today!

Vienna Airport is also known as Flughafen Wien-Schwechat.

If visiting Vienna rather drop off luggage at terminal first and then drop off the car if the weather is bad … it is quite a distance to walk and when the weather is bad it is not a nice trio having to drag heavy luggage it would also be easier if there were cart available at the drop off points
