Easily reachable: Event locations with good public transport connections

Comfortably travel to these event locations by public transport.

Arrive at these event centres stress-free and with an ecologically clean conscience. Leave your car behind and take the train or bus directly to the gates of your event location. Venues near provincial capitals like Vienna, Graz, Salzburg, Linz or Eisenstadt can easily be reached by public transport without much effort. That protects our environment and ensures that guests avoid nerve-racking traffic jams on the way to the event, arriving relaxed – ideal conditions for innovative workshops or pleasant corporate celebrations.

Seifenfabrik Veranstaltungszentrum

Less than three kilometres south of the city centre in Graz, the Seifenfabrik event venue welcomes seminars and conferences, corporate and staff celebrations. Due to its excellent location near the middle of the Styrian provincial capital, the old soap factory lying on the banks of the river Mur can be reached most conveniently by public transport. Bus line 34 drops you at the “Seifenfabrik” bus stop, from where it takes just a few minutes to comfortably walk over to the event location. Arriving by bicycle is another option, as the cycle path to the event premises runs directly along the Mur and makes for a relaxing change of scenery. There are 220 free parking spaces available.

However, the Seifenfabrik stands out not only because of its excellent public transport connections, but also because of the amazing numbers it can cater for. The largest of the five event rooms, a half-timbered hall measuring almost 700 square metres, can accommodate up to 1,200 people. The impressive garden with direct access to the river is even designed for 2,400 guests. To stay the night, a range of hotels in the immediate vicinity can easily be reached by public transport or on foot. Excursions by bus to the vibrant city of Graz can be organised just as effortlessly.

Kultur Kongress Zentrum Eisenstadt

This stylish event location in the heart of Burgenland's provincial capital not only leaves an impression with its timeless modern architecture, but also with its unique location and excellent transport connections. You can easily reach the Kultur Kongress Zentrum by train. It is then only a 15-minute walk from the train station in Eisenstadt to the event location, or let a taxi drop you off at the convention centre in just five minutes. Adding a modern feature to the historical city centre, the location provides space for more than 1,300 people. A flexible room concept with movable partition wall systems offers a wide range of design options for your event. The roof terrace with a view over the Old Town is a particularly stunning place to take breaks and hold receptions.

Once you have arrived in Eisenstadt by train, you can practically go everywhere on foot. It only takes a few minutes to walk from the Kultur Kongress Zentrum to the restaurants, pubs and accommodation in the city centre, as well as to sights such as the Esterházy Palace with its park, the Haydn House or the Haydn Church.

Austrian National Library

The historic event location at Josefsplatz in Vienna's city centre is well-connected to the public transport system. With tram lines 1, 2, 71 or D, the journey to the library even becomes a little sightseeing tour along the world-famous Ringstrasse boulevard. Alternatively, you can also get to the National Library by underground line 3 (Stations: Herrengasse, Volkstheater or Stephansplatz) or underground line 1 (Station: Stephansplatz). Excursions to the city's most important sights like Schönbrunn Palace can also be conveniently planned by bus, tram or underground.

In addition to the outstanding transport links, the Austrian National Library is a particularly awe-inspiring event location because of its historical beauty and charm. Meet or dine in magnificent event rooms with glamorous interiors, such as the baroque State Hall, the Sala Terrena or the Augustinian Reading Room. Podium, stage and technical equipment are available for any type of corporate event. The total capacity of this extraordinary venue is 1,300 guests.

Tabakfabrik Linz

There are not many event locations in Austria that are as well connected to the public transport system as the Tabakfabrik in Linz. The hub of the local start-up scene is only about a 30-minute walk from the main railway station. Alternatively, you can either hail a taxi or take a bus. Bus lines 209, 314 and 345 will drop you directly at the event hotspot, so be sure to exit at either the "Donau Parkbad" or "Donau Lederergasse" bus stops.

Situated not far from the historical Old Town in Linz and therefore ideally accessible, the listed industrial building of the tobacco factory has its own very special atmosphere. As an unconventional meeting place, the Tabakfabrik functions as a catalyst for creative and innovative thinking. From the total of four meeting rooms, the newly renovated “Lösehalle” with space for up to 850 guests, is particularly worth highlighting. State-of-the-art equipment and contemporary gastronomic culture are normal features of the Tabakfabrik.

Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron

Whether coming from the airport or the main railway station, it takes just 15 minutes by car to reach the historic Schloss Leopoldskron located near Salzburg's Old Town. Good public transport connections also allow sightseeing tours by bus and on foot in the centre of the City of Mozart. Add a little variety to your event and explore the Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Cathedral or Getreidegasse.

Situated in an ideal location, Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron features nine meeting and seminar rooms of different sizes for up to 130 guests. The magnificent Marble Hall, the Great Hall with terrace and garden or the elegant Venetian meeting room offer suitable settings for your workshops, conferences, corporate celebrations or team-building sessions. In addition, you benefit from the seven-hectare castle park, and can draw inspiration from the magnificent panoramic views reaching as far as the Untersberg massif and the Hohensalzburg Fortress.
