Where is the EGU General Assembly?

The General Assembly is almost here. Presentations are (hopefully!) complete, posters are printed, bags are packed and all you need to do is get to the conference…

The Austria Center Vienna (ACV), the Assembly venue, is not far from the city centre and can easily be reached from the airport and central train station. You can get there via the U1, the red line in the underground map below:

The ACV is located next to the Kaisermühlen/Vienna Int. Centre metro station (click for larger).

The ACV is located next to the Kaisermühlen/Vienna Int. Centre (VIC) U-Bahn station (take the U1 towards Leopoldau if you’re coming from the city centre). Wiener Linien, Vienna’s public transport agency, provides a journey planner on their website, including information about getting to the city centre from the airport by train.

regular bus service connects the airport with the conference centre too. Bus 1183 stops just outside the ACV (Wien Kaisermühlen VIC – Wagramer Straße). Further travel information – including about where to find taxis at the airport – can also be found on the airport’s website.

Once you’re in, you can navigate your way to your first session of the day using these maps of the Austria Center!
