Remise – Transport Museum of Wiener Linien

The „Remise – Transport Museum of Wiener Linien“ was opened to a large audience of Viennese of all ages on Saturday, September 13, 2014.

The exhibition has since been open all year, offering information about tramway, subway, and busses of past eras. Visitors of all ages can embark on a journey through 200 years of Viennese public transport and explore the interactive multi-media content distributed over different theme points.

The exhibition covers all chapters of Vienna’s public transport history, such as the first fixed-track public transport line in 1815, the first horse-drawn tramway in 1865, the first electrified tramcars at the turn of the century, construction of the electric city railway in 1925, the famous „American“, the first modern post-war tramcars, the construction of the subway system and its „Silver Arrow“ trains, as well as an outlook on the future of Vienna’s public transport.

New at the Transport Museum of Wiener Linien: the subway simulator – the ideal way for children, school classes and families to playfully explore and learn about history!

Exhibition module nr. 3 shows electrified tramcars and demonstrates the working principle of an electrified motorcar.
Future developments of public transport, such as the „Ustrab“ (underground tramway) and driverless operating transport systems are another focus of this module.

Taking in these vast amounts of information can be exhausting – take a rest at one of the many lounge spots! At the final stop of our current exhibition of original vehicles you get to see Austria’s first articulated engine car from 1957, and an articulated engine car type F from 1963, which was remodelled from a double-axis car.
