Travel information

By plane: There is only one international airport in Vienna to which most international carriers fly. A taxi fair from the airport to the center will cost you up to 30-60 EUR (depending on time of day). You can also take the so-called City Airport Train (CAT) which will take you straight to the center [station: Landstrasse Wien Mitte] for around 20 EUR. Alternatively, you can take the S-bahn (S7) or Railjet (RJ755) – regular train – for <10 EUR to the center which is almost just as fast as the former two options (about 1/2 hour). The train station is located inside the airport building. You can purchase train tickets online here

By train: Vienna is well connected by train to much of central Europe via the main train station (“Hauptbahnhof”)

Once in the city it is easiest to get around with public transport [underground (UBahn), bus, and tram]. You can use all of these with the same type of ticket (“fahrschein”). The price for these are 7.60 EUR (24hrs), 13.30 EUR (48hrs) and 16.50 EUR (72hrs). These can be purchased at any train or underground station, or online here

Sessions on the 13th and 15th September will take place at the Vienna Biocenter. If you travel by the S7 (S-Bahn) from the airport you can get there directly without changing trains (station: Wien St. Marx / Vienna BioCenter). The meeting will take place in the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology – IMP (Campus-Vienna-Biocenter 1, 1030 Vienna). The Biocenter is most easily reached using the 71 tram, 74 bus or 18 tram which stop right around the corner (Rennweg/Landstrasserhauptstrasse). All events at the Biocenter will take place in the Main Lecture Hall, which can be found on the ground floor near the main entrance of the Institute of Molecular Pathology – IMP (just follow the “BioBrillouin” signs).

The main scientific session on the 14th September will take place at the Natural History Museum which is located at Burgring 7 in the 1st district of Vienna. The nearest underground station is Museums Quartier (U2).  (see map). The 71 Tram can be taken to go directly between the Biocenter and the Museums Quartier (where the Natural History Museum is located). All events at the Natural History Museum take place in the Vortragssaal (which is located on the left up the short flight of stairs after you enter the museum – there is only one entrance to the museum).
