How to reach the Palais Niederösterreich
From Vienna International Airport you can use the City Airport Train (CAT), which leaves the airport every 16 minutes. The CAT is a non stop transportation from the Airport to the City of Vienna (Costs: € 9.- one way). From the terminal station of the CAT (“Landstraße/ Wien Mitte”) change to the orange underground U3 in direction “Ottakring” and get off at the third stop, called “Herrengasse”. It is only 1 minute walking distance to the venue from the station.
The venue can also be reached by suburban railway (S7, mainly departs from platform 2), which takes a bit longer than the CAT, and might not be as comfortable, but is a lot cheaper than the CAT (€ 3,60.- one way). The Railway stops at “Landstraße/ Wien Mitte”, where you have to change to the orange underground U3 in direction “Ottakring” and get off at the third stop, called “Herrengasse”. It is only 1 minute walking distance to the venue from the station.
