Vienna's Districts

Vienna is a well-planned city and on several occasions has played host to urban planning conferences. It is organised into 23 districts, the first being the city centre and the succeeding numbers lying farther and farther on the outskirts. For an easy commute to IIASA we recommend you to look at housing options close to the Vienna Central Station (Wien Hauptbahnhof), districts 3, 4, 5, 10 and 12.

How to get to IIASA from the airport  
From the airport take either the Schnellbahn (S-bahn = commuter train – e.g. S-Bahn S7) or the CAT to the station "Wien Hauptbahnhof". From there follow the bus signs to the street level to the #200 bus to Laxenburg. The trip takes 30 minutes. 

Please view the timetable

You should get off in Laxenburg at the stop called "Franz-Josefs-Platz". The bus stop is on the upper left hand corner of the Laxenburg map near the "Schloss Restaurant" (see bus symbol). The main entrance of the IIASA Schloss is indicated on the center of the Laxenburg map and is approximately a 2-minute walk from the bus stop. 
The IIASA guest rooms are located next to the IIASA restaurant, which is located adjacent to the bus station, where you will arrive.
