Transport

 
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.

Venues

 
Helene-Richter-Saal, Seminar Rooms 3 and 5

The Helene-Richter-Saal and Seminar Rooms are located directly at our


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


You will find Helene-Richter-Saal and Seminar Room 3 on the ground floor, Seminar Room 5 on the first floor.

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 (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).

 

Alte Kapelle (key-note lecture)

The entrance to the venue Alte Kapelle is situated between courtyards/Hof 1 and 2 on the Campus.

 

Heurigen restaurant (conference dinner)

The conference dinner will take place at Stadtheuriger Gigerl in the first district, City Centre (Rauhensteingasse 3; entrance at: Blumenstockgasse 2).
