Getting to Vienna

Travel Info


Due to our constant effort to improve our sustainability, we encourage our guests to arrive by train. In addition, Vienna offers excellent rail connection to all the major European cities and our conference takes place only a stone’s throw away from Vienna main station. The Austrian rail network is operated by Austrian National Railways (ÖBB).

Travel times from major European cities

Bratislava 1 hour
Budapest 1 hour 45 minutes
Munich 4 hours
Prague 4 hours 30 minutes
Zurich 7 hours 45 minutes
Berlin 8 hours
Rome 12 hours




As the conference is directed at an international target group, we understand that not all guests have the option of overland travel. Thanks to the great services of the Austrian rail network, it only takes 15 minutes by train to go from the Airport to the main station where the Novotel Hotel is located. The train operates every 30 minutes.

There is also a bus that goes directly to the main station. It takes 40 minutes and also operates each half an hour.

You can find more information about how to get to and from the airport on the website:



You’ll have a safe journey to Vienna by car and bus on Austria’s excellent network of motorways, expressways and federal highways.

As tolls are compulsory on all motorways and expressways in Austria, you will also need a vignette to use Vienna’s city motorways. You can find detailed information on the toll charges here. The route planner will help you find the best way to Vienna.
