Default How to arrive to Salzburg from Vienna (cheap and easy)

Good day everyone!!

I'm in a small trip through Europe and I'll be visiting Austria. As I 'll stay in Vienna for some days I would like to visit Salzburg too. I know that various members of the forum are from there, so I ask to them if there is any easy and cheap way to arrive to Salzburg from Vienna. I only found a very elaborate train intinerary that will take nearly 6 hours (for 200 km!!).

Thanks in advance.

Here's the official search for the ÖBB (Austrian railroad): http://fahrplan.oebb.at/bin/query.exe/en - trains from Wien to Salzburg usually take about 2.5 to 3 hours. Most trains go directly between the two cities, no need to change trains and such. Trains are the cheapest solution - but they're a bit of a ripoff nevertheless. If you travel with a second person, you can get a somewhat cheaper "partner" ticket.

You're coming at an unfortunate time though - both the train station in Vienna (Westbahnhof) and in Salzburg (Hauptbahnhof) are being renovated/rebuilt at the moment, and there might be some more trouble than usual with the trains.
