Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Wiener Stadtbahn was a public transportation system operated under this name from 1898 to 1989. Today, the Vienna U-Bahn lines U4 and U6 and the Vienna S-Bahn run on its former lines. The name derives from the usage of the term around the turn of the 19th/20th century to denote a full-scale railway in an urban area, separated from all other forms of traffic. It is not related to the usage of the term Stadtbahn in post-WWII Germany. The Stadtbahn is one Vienna's better known examples of early Art Nouveau architecture.show more
