Getting around Vienna seems pretty simple, as long as you like trams. Stateside, these would be more or less what we'd call trolleys, much like the ones once found in Philadelphia - but these tend to be 2-3 car articulated ones. They run in the streets, don't go terribly fast, but are quite convenient and are found just about everywhere. Plus, they have connecting points to the U-Bahn (subway) and Schnellbahn (high-speed regional rail).
