All participants are kindly requested to complete the hotel booking section during the online registration. A deposit for one night is required to secure the room. Upon receipt of your deposit payment a confirmation will be sent. Balance payment has to be done at the hotel upon check-out. The hotel will issue an invoice. The hotel uses the number of nights booked in advance as the basis for billing.

Changes and cancellations of confirmed rooms must be sent in writing to Austropa Interconvention. For cancellations prior to September 5, 2005 a handling fee of Euro 30,- per booking will be charged. No refund can be made after this date or non-occupation of the room on the booked day of arrival. In case of "No-Show" the hotel reservation will be released after the first night.

Getting Around

Vienna has a large public transport system: an extensive tram network, which is one of the largest in the world, and also large number of bus routes. As all routes in densely populated areas operated at dense intervals, even during off-peak hours, it is usually not necessary to remember the time when the train or bus goes.

Public transportation mostly closes during night hours, but there is a special bus service, the Nightline, operating on the most important routes. However, most of these buses run only every thirty minutes. Vienna uses an "honor system." There are no gates or ticket checks when boarding transit lines, but ticket checks will occur, oftentimes by undercover employees.

There exists a 72-hour-ticket, the "Vienna Card", which can be bought at hotels, the Tourist Information Center on Albertinaplatz, at all sales offices or information booths of the Vienna Transportation System. Additionally, you get a reduction or benefits at 200 museums and sights, theaters, concerts, shops, restaurants, cafés and Heurigen (wine taverns).
