How to get to the Australian embassy
The embassy is easily reached by tram, bus or subway:
- Tram line D to Gußhausstraße (3 minutes walk) or line 1 or 62 to Resselgasse (a slightly longer walk)
- Bus 4A to Lothringerstraße (3 minutes walk)
- U1, U2 and U4 subway lines to Karlsplatz station (6 minutes walk): take the Resselpark exit from the station
The Australian embassy is right next door to the Karlskirche church, where a lift takes you up into the church’s dome so you can examine the ceiling paintings up close (and get good views across town).
Another neighbour is the Wien Museum (city history and art museum currently closed for renovations, unfortunately).
Go north and you’ll soon enter Vienna’s old town. As you cross the Karlsplatz area, look out for Otto Wagner’s beautiful station pavilions. If you have embassy business around late November and December, you’ll find the park at Karlsplatz transformed into a huge Christmas market.
Go east to reach the Red Army monument on Schwarzenbergplatz and then Belvedere Palace (a major art museum and home to Klimt’s The Kiss).
