Getting There -- Board one of the many trains heading toward Budapest from the Südbahnhof (South Railway Station) in Vienna, and change trains in the railway junction of Neusiedl am See. Connections are timed to link up with the 16 or so trains that continue on to Eisenstadt (trip time: 90 min.). For schedules, call tel. 05/1717 in Vienna, or check www.oebb.at.

Many visitors prefer to go by bus leaving Vienna from Südtirol Platz (site of a U-Bahn) Station. Suburban buses begin their runs at this huge depot. From lane no. 24, a bus leaves during the day for Eisenstadt on an hourly basis, the trip taking anywhere from 47 to 70 minutes.

If you're driving from Vienna, take Route 10 east to Parndorf Ort, and then head southwest along Route 50 to Eisenstadt.

Visitor Information -- The Eisenstadt tourist office, Schloss Esterházy (tel. 02682/67390), will make hotel reservations for you at no charge and distributes information (in English).
