Where is platform 4DE at station Villach Hbf??

I have 7 minutes at Villach Hbf to change trains and get from platform 3 to platform 4DE. I have downloaded the station map for Villach and I only see platform 4, A and B. Can someone tell me where 4DE is in relation to platform 3?

    Hi Karon,

    I'm sorry, however, we don't have information regarding the locations of platforms in stations in Europe. A common minimum connection time is 7 to 10 minutes for changing trains at the typical station in Europe. Rest assured, 7 minutes is sufficient to change trains at the station in Villach.
    • Is that doable please if you don't speak English. We have 6 mins in Villach to make the change from 4D-E to 4A-C.

      In Vienna we have 5 minutes to change from 10A-C to 9C-E.

      Seems a bit risky and scary.

      Your assurance would be most appreciated.

      Would they hold the connecting trains if the train is running late please??

      I'm sorry, as we do not have information on the locations of platforms in stations in Europe. With that said, 6 minutes is sufficient to change trains at the station in Villach. Connections like that are very common and typical at stations in Europe.

      The main station in Vienna (Vienna Hbf) is larger, however, so 5 minutes to change here would be rather tight. At the Vienna Hbf station, I would recommend allowing yourself something more like 15-20 minutes to make your train change. When purchasing tickets on our site, you can arrange for a transfer time of your own choosing just by doing a separate search for each segment of the connection.

    Hello!
    When you arrive at plattform 3, you have to go into the underpass. Then turn right. After a short walk you will see the sign to plattform 4 (it does not matter which letters are on the sign). Follow the sign and go upstairs to plattform 4.
    Plattform 4DE means that it might bei a short train. There are signs on the plattform which will show you 4DE.

    //sorry for my bad english - i am from villach
    • Thank you. I am concerned about getting from 4D-E>4AC at Villach Train station. Wanting to make the connection from Ljubljana to Vienna then onto Budapest. They allow 6 mins and we only speak English.

      When we get to Vienna we need to change trains from 10A-C to 9C-E in 5 mins. I am really worried about the lack of time to change trains.

      Do the trains wait it a connecting train is late at all.

      Thank you

      Carolyn
