Getting around in Vienna

In Vienna you can use buses, trams and the S-Bahn (suburban train). A single ticket will cost you € 2.40 (before boarding) or € 2.60 (in the tram), a "48 hours Vienna"/"48 Stunden Wien" ticket € 14.10, and a "72 hours Vienna"/"72 Stunden Wien" ticket € 17.10. You can purchase tickets at the airport, at any metro-station, at a Trafik (kiosk for newspapers and tobacco), via the smartphone app (see below) but not on board of buses or underground trains. You will be able to buy single tickets in trams, but most ticket machines there are coin-based, so make sure you have some change.


Hs 1 HG (Thursday)

Hörsaal 1 (Lecture hall 1) is situated in the Main University Building (Universitätsring 1). You can get there on foot from the vicinity of the Campus in 10-15 min., or by going to the public transport hub "Schottentor" (underground U2, trams 1, 37, 38, 40, 41, 42, 71, D, bus 1A): map

Enter main University building from Universitätsring 1 by the left side entrance, cross the first courtyard (Hof 1) and then turn to the right into the corridor leading to Hs 1: Hs 1 map

Seminar rooms (Friday, Saturday)

Seminar Rooms 4 and 6 are located directly at our

Department of English and American Studies, University of Vienna
Campus AAKH, Hof 8.3, Spitalgasse 2, 1090 Wien

Our department is called "Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik" in German; AAKH is short for "Altes Allgemeines Krankenhaus", in case you were wondering; and "Hof" means courtyard in German.

Should you arrive at Spitalgasse, you are about to enter courtyard/Hof 1 (Campus map); if you enter from Garnisongasse (which is the shortest route to our Department) you are in courtyard/Hof 9 (in this case, just proceed to the next courtyard, which is no. 8). Once inside campus walls, it will help to watch out for blue signposts with maps on them (the university’s official direction signs).

"Restaurant Stefanie" (conference dinner on Friday)

The conference dinner will take place at Restaurant Stefanie (Taborstraße 12, 1020 Vienna). (map)

We will walk from the Campus to the Ring (map), then board tram no. 1 (direction: "Prater") to go to "Schwedenplatz". There we cross the Donaukanal and walk a few minutes up Taborstraße (map). Restaurant Stefanie is on the right-hand side of the street. It will take us about 25-30 min. to reach the restaurant from the Campus.
