Local Transportation Info

How to get from the airport to the venue? Directly at the airport you have two options to get into Vienna: (a) Take the public train/suburban railway from ÖBB, this is the cheaper and slightly slower option. (b) Take the CAT (City airport train), this is the faster and more expensive option. Both means of transportation take you to the center of Vienna (CAT: end station; public train: get off at “Wien Mitte”). From there you can either walk (8 minutes) or take the subway line U3 for 1 stop to Stubentor, which is very close to the venue (Aula der Wissenschaften, Wollzeile 27a).
