Vintage tram rides in Vienna (english)

Enjoy the flair of the Viennese tramway of centuries past on one of the largest tram networks in Europe, in one of the world’s most beautiful cities!


Wonderful Vienna

The impressive buildings from the time of the monarchy, the Prater amusement park with its Giant Wheel, the Heuriger wine taverns – and so much more! A city tour along the legendary Ringstrasse, past the opera and the Hofburg Palace, the glamorous Art History and Natural History Museum and the Burgtheater, along the Danube channel and finally a trip to the Prater or to the Heuriger in the romantic suburb Grinzing – the vintage tramway (called “Bim” in Vienna) will make for an unforgettable experience.

There are (almost) no limitations to your wishes. Wherever there are tram tracks in Vienna – and there are almost 180 km of them – our vintage trams can take you there! Transfer of larger groups, for example from the train station to the hotel, company parties and outings, or a cultural programme for congresses and conferences are all possible too, as there are 8 rail cars and 7 side carriages available, all made between 1913 and 1963.


What you shouldn’t miss

Tram rides in the evening with lit carriages are particularly atmospheric – for example, here on the left you can see the beautiful end-of-line station in the famous Heuriger suburb Grinzing.

Our vintage trams are all originals, not reconstructions. For the most part, they are in the same condition they were in during the 1970s, when they were still in daily use.

Lovingly and carefully restored, with wooden seats, they are in the best condition and even boast original advertising posters of the time.

In many rail cars, the driver still stands at his crank handle, which would simply be unimaginable in regular line operation today.


City tours and trips to the Heuriger

Get to know Vienna from a very special angle – the vintage tramways by Rent a Bim make it possible. The unique flair of the old imperial city Vienna can be experienced in a historical and stylish way. Our oldest rail car is from the year 1913, when Emperor Franz Joseph was still in charge of the imperial and royal monarchy.
Our vintage trams take you on a comfortable, leisurely ride through Vienna with great views all the way – whether you take a tour around the Ringstrasse and the Kai, through the famous districts Josefstadt or Leopoldstadt, all the way out to the Heurigen suburbs Grinzing or Nussdorf. On request, we will be happy to arrange an experienced guide full of exciting stories, who will tell you all about the city and its history during the tram ride.
We will put together your route specially for your group. You can choose your point of departure and final destination.


Special rides

Our wedding and birthday rides are particularly popular. On request, even marriage ceremonies can be carried out in our vintage trams!
For birthdays, we will gladly display the relevant age as the tram-line number and organise beautiful flower decorations.
For promotional tours, private views, product presentations or press conferences, our beautifully restored vehicles are perfect for far more than just transportation. Or have you considered a company party with exquisite catering in an end-of-line station with historical ambiance, specially renovated for this purpose? Feel free to talk to us about any of your ideas!


What we can do for you

On request, vehicles can be equipped with a speaker system (and wireless microphone) and for additional services such as catering, musicians, flower decorations or multi-lingual guides we will gladly recommend one of our reliable partners.
