Ideas for Meet-ups and Social Activities

Cheap Hotels

All of these are basic, simple hotels with single rooms for EUR 60 or less. Expect clean rooms, but no luxuries.

Tourist Information

Public Transport Information

The conference venue is within walking distance of Schwedenplatz subway station (lines U1 and U4) and directly across the street from Julius-Raab-Platz tramway station (lines 1, 2 and N).

Notice that there are [WWW]four ways of getting from the airport to the city: commuter rail line S7 (EUR 3), airport buses (EUR 6), the heavily advertised CAT express train (EUR 9) and taxis (minimum EUR 30).

Important notice for everyone staying at Hotel Atlas: Underground line U2 will not be in operation on Saturday July 3rd and Sunday July 4th due to engineering works, so the best way to get to Hotel Atlas on these two days is to take underground line U3 to Volkstheater, take the exit to "Ring", change to tramway 46 and get off at Auerspergstrasse.

Free WLAN hotspots in Vienna

See a list (in german) of about 70 free hotspots (mostly restaurants and cafŽs) on [WWW]Helge's Blog. Special recommendations (all four tested):
