Verkehrsmuseum Remise Vienna – Tram tracks through time

Art & culture

"Verkehrsmuseum Remise" in Vienna is a repository for all things transport. I love trains, and I promise you: this museum will complete your stay here...

The Straßenbahn Museum has received a much-needed upgrade. This is the repository for all things transport: buses, trains and trams. You can now expect a fully-stocked gift shop, interactive exhibits and better information, much of which is also in English, something that was missing before. Oh, and the opening hours are better, too.

The museum documents the history of public transport in Vienna and as such is vast. Housed in one of the Kaiser-era Remises (the places where the trains go to sleep at night), the ambience is also fantastic. Memorable exhibits are plentiful, including the bus that fell into the Danube in 1976 - astonishingly, the bus saw active service again afterwards!

One of the major selling points are the vintage tram tours of the city, available only in the summer. Never mind that the smell of grease is overpowering and that one could hardly hold a conversation in these bumpy, screeching noise-traps; travelling here transports you to a time when Vienna was the capital of a huge empire and one of the world's most important cities.

I'm not going to even try and hide it. I love trains. Buses too. And if you have even a slight tendency to sniff the air a little harder when you hear the sweet petrol song of a vintage engine, I promise that this museum will complete your trip to Vienna. This museum is, after all, the most exciting place in the world*.
