If you stay with us, you won’t need a car. Simm’s Hotel is really close to the underground network an perfect for an arrival by underground.
The Zippererstrasse station of the U3 underground line is right next to our subway hotel. From here an underground train runs into Vienna’s city centre every few minutes. The U3 line is one of Vienna’s main underground lines.
Thanks to convenient access to Vienna’s extensive public transport network, you’ll find it quick and convenient to get to any place in the city, with no traffic jams at all.
All kinds of different tickets are available for Vienna’s public transport network, ranging from a one-way ticket to day or multi-day passes and cards that are valid for 24, 48 or 72 hours (Wien-Karte).
The Zippererstrasse underground station that is right next-door to Simm’s Hotel has another unusual feature: it is the station with the longest escalator in the Vienna network – 53 metres long. The Zippererstrasse is named after Georg Zipperer, who was a landowner from Simmering in the middle of the 19th century.
See the city above ground, too
Trams on line 71 also stop just outside the hotel. From here you can travel either directly to the Vienna Stock Exchange in the first district or to Vienna’s Central Cemetery, which was opened in 1874 and is now something of an insiders’ secret among the tourist attractions of Vienna. Various operators offer guided tours based on different themes. Visitors who are particularly brave take one of the popular night-time tours!
