Getting around in Vienna

Public Transport

Subway / Metro

The best way to move via public transport in Vienna is to use the subway / metro as shown in this map.

WU is very conveniently located at the subway U2. Stations “Messe Prater” or “Krieau”.

We organized a special price for a conference ticket in order to use Viennese public transport. Three months prior to the conference you can use this link to purchase a ticket at a reduced fare.



It is also easy to move via taxi. Especially in the city centre, it is easy to quickly find a taxi. Prices from the two hotels in the city centre to the conference will be around 15€ and it will take approximately 20 mins.

Taxi numbers include:

  • +43 01 40100
  • +43 01 31300
  • +43 01 60160


By Foot

On this map of the WU-Campus you can find your way to the respective buildings where the conference is held. If arriving by metro / subway (see above), choose to either get off at “U2 Messe” or “U2 Krieau”, depending on which building you wish to go to.

The opening ceremony will be held in the building LC, the concurrent sessions in the building TC.

Airport Transfer

City Airport Train (CAT)

Leaving every 30 minutes from the airport, the CAT is taking you directly to Landstrasse/Wien-Mitte. The ride takes 16 minutes and from there the city centre and the WU are less than 15 minutes by metro or taxi.

Tickets are 12€ for a single and 19€ for a return. It is also possible to check in at Wien-Mitte, when leaving for your flight back.


Bus (Vienna Airport Lines)

The Vienna Airport Lines buses leave from the airport and take you either directly to the city center or to WU. Leaving every 30 minutes, the ride to “Schwedenplatz/Morzin Platz” is the correct bus to reach the center, whereas the ride to “Stadion Center” is the correct bus if you want to reach WU. From “Stadion Center” take the metro/ subway U2 for one station (see above) and walk to WU.

Tickets are only available as singles, costing 8€.
