About us

VERKEHRSBUERO is Austria’s leading tourism group with the operating divisions VERKEHRSBUERO TRAVEL and VERKEHRSBUERO HOSPITALITY. as well as the HOLDING division; which is available as an internal partner for management and services with teams of experts. Our employees ensure that travel at home and abroad, both private and business, is a special experience. It is not surprising that the new headquarters in Vienna is called the “Home of Travel”; this is where the diverse range of products and services offered by the various brands is reflected and combined.



With its TRAVEL division, VERKEHRSBUERO is the market leader for leisure and business travel. With currently 75 travel agencies, Ruefa has the densest branch network in Austria and, as a tour operator, also offers high-quality long-distance, study and ship tours. The leading multichannel and direct sales specialist Eurotours International sells tailor-made vacation packages in Austria and neighboring countries, also under the Just Away brand in the online distribution sector.

The TRAVEL segment is rounded off with Business & MICE Services for corporate customers. Business trips & incentives are booked professionally at Verkehrsbüro Business Travel or online via BEasy. Customers of AX Travel Management have access to a global service thanks to the worldwide partner American Express Global Business Travel. Austropa Interconvention designs conferences & large-scale events and supports with hybrid or completely virtual platform concepts.



22 hotels in Austria and Slovenia, 1 suite in Schloss Schönbrunn, 2 hostels and 2 campsites in Vienna, 3 event locations and the Café Central in Vienna – with the VERKEHRSBUERO HOSPITALITY business unit, the Group is deliberately broadly positioned. Austria Trend Hotels is the leading hotel group in Austria, with two million overnight stays per year and around 7,000 beds in 16 properties in Austria and Slovenia (plus the Grand Suite in Schloss Schönbrunn). 4 hotels are managed in cooperation with the Radisson Hotel Group. BASSENA is the youngest hotel brand in the group, with the BASSENA Wien Messe Prater. Away from the classic city hotel business, VERKEHRSBUERO HOSPITALITY also offers places in the countryside, with visitors staying at Camping Vienna West and Camping New Danube. Travelers will find inexpensive accommodation at Hostel Hütteldorf and Palace Hostel Vienna. VERKEHRSBUERO also distributes Palais Events, which offer perfect venues for events in Vienna: Palais Ferstel, Palais Daun-Kinsky, the Wiener Börsensäle and the historic Café Central in Vienna’s Herrengasse.


As the largest company in tourism in Austria, we are a partner you can trust.
