You are right, of course. I just forgot to paint it.

When do they start tearing down the Südbahnhof? After the football cup 2008?


Anyways, as bad as Südbahnhof is today, every new construction replacing this mess can only be something genuine good. A renovation would only have been a waste of money, given its freak location to the U-Bahn net and the long distance one has to traverse to get from one to the other end of the station.

Construction is already taking place, mostly in the underground. Vienna's new Central Station (right now there is no such thing, but the most important station is Westbahnhof) will also include what is right now Südtirolerplatz subway, tramway and s-bahn station. This part is under heavy reconstruction at the moment and the s-bahn part is almost finished already.

this map shows how urban and commuter transport will be connected to the Central Station:

Blue Lines = S-Bahn
Red Line = existing U1 subway
Purple Line = planned U2 extension
Black, Lime, Teal = tramway. Note that Teal (Line 18) is a premetro line
Green, Orange = buslines

I think it looks pretty good, but I am still amazed that Vienna, such an important city, has never had a central Station. It must be the only major city in the developed world which hasn't (even most American cities have or had a monumental central station.

According to my definition of "Central Station" (being one station where most trains go to/through) other cities didn't/don't have one, London and Paris being the most famous ones. Until a few years, Berlin hadn't a central station either. So it's not that unique

About time! It's sure has been long time since Vienna had a good-looking railway station.

Wonderful project. When I was in Vienna I found that the only missing grand and attractive infrastructure was the railway station (surprisingly). This is set to change coz the new station looks great!!

It certainly is a nice looking Central Station. And it is a huge improvement compared to the current stations. If the development around the station gets off the ground also, this can be a nice new district for Vienna!

It's rather a main station than a central station. There are other rail stations in Wien that are far closer to the city centre.

We don't want a new world wonder, we want an efficiently working and nice looking new main railway station. If you know the status quo, it will be a large step forward.

I guess Vienna has already enough sights, I can live with people not coming to Vienna just to see the main railway station.

Well, the major railwaystations were all bombed to dust during the war, or those that survived somewhat the bombardments where torn down by wise men. The Franz Josephs railwaystation could still exist for example, but they preferred to tear it down and build a new extremely ugly station on a slightly moved location, which has btw torn down again in the last years and the once again new station opened just this year.

Did Vienna then have a major station in the past? What did it look like?

I think Vienna had one or more (not sure) major railway stations which were destroyed during the WW2.
