Future Extensions

The number of metro projects for Vienna is legendary; it is said that there were more than in any other city of the world. It is quite impossible to predict what will be built and what will not, so all that is said below may or may not happen. Previous visitors to this page know what I mean.

Plans for a 5th stage after 2025

Preliminary work has started on the next phase of subway extensions:

  • Line U2: New southern branch Rathaus - Neubaugasse - Pilgramgasse - Matzleinsdorfer Platz. The current southern branch would be transferred to line U5

  • Line U5: Existing branch of line U2 from Karlsplatz to Rathaus, from there a new branch to Frankhplatz/Altes AKH, which could later be extended to Elterleinplatz.
