Getting around in Vienna
Vienna has a good public transport system, so you do not need taxis or
a car to get around in Vienna. The conference site and hotels are
near one of the central hubs of the Vienna public transport system,
the station "Karlsplatz", where three subways and a number of tramway
and bus lines meet.
The City of Vienna with it's sights and cultural institutions (St. Stephen's
Palace, the City Hall,
Library, the Museum of Fine
Arts, the Secession,
Staatsoper, Burgtheater, Volkstheater etc.) is within
walking distance of the conference site and hotels, and also some
other sights (e.g., the Austrian
Gallery at the Upper
Other sights are easily reachable by public transport: E.g., Schönbrunn Palace (6
stops with subway U4 direction Hütteldorf from stop "Karlsplatz" to
stop "Schönbrunn"), the Giant Ferris
Wheel (4 stops with subway U1 direction Kagran from stop
"Karlsplatz" to stop "Praterstern").
