How to Get to Linz?

The most frequent ways to get to Linz are by plane, by train or by car. Linz is also well known for the bike path along the Danube that goes from Passau (in Germany) to Vienna. Moreover Linz is located along the Danube, an important stream within the European waterways.

  • By Car: Linz is almost in the middle of the freeway A1 from Salzburg to Vienna (140 km to Salzburg and 200 km to Vienna).
    • Take freeway A1 (from Salzburg to Vienna or vice versa) until "Knoten Linz"
    • Take freeway A7 from "Knoten Linz". Follow the signs in the direction of "Freistadt, Prag" (about 15 km).
    • Get off at the exit "Linz-Dornach". About 2 km before the exit "Linz-Dornach" the freeway crosses the Danube.
    • If you want to go to the University (Conference Venue) cross the traffic light and go straight ahead after leaving the freeway. About 500m later you see the campus on your left hand side. If you want to go to the Hotel Sommerhaus (Raab-Heim) turn right at the traffic light and go on about 500m. Just before passing underneath the freeway (big bridge) turn left and follow the small street until you reach the Hotel Sommerhaus on your right hand side (about 10 floors, a big tower in the southern part of the building).
  • By Train: When arriving by train at the main train station, there are 2 possibilties to get to the conference venue or to the Hotel Sommerhaus - either by taxi or tram.
    • Tram: There is a good connection by tram between the main station and the Johannes Kepler University Linz. There is a tram every 5 to 7 minutes and it takes about 30 to 45 minutes. The price is at 20 ATS (1,5 Euro) for a single ticket (MIDI) or 40 ATS (3 Euro) for a one day ticket. You can buy the ticket at special ticket machines at the stops (usually coins and bills are possible).
      Take Line 3 at the main train station and change to Line 1 (direction "Universität" - last station on the line). You can change the tram at the first stop ("Blumauerplatz"), but you do not need to hurry. Line 1 and Line 3 use the same track through the center of Linz. The latest possibility to change is "Rudolfsstrasse" (right after crossing the Danube). Go on until the last stop "Universität". Now see Conference Venue.
    • Taxi: You find the taxis right in front of the train station, price is about 140 ATS, 10 Euro to the Johannes Kepler University Linz or to the Hotel Sommerhaus.
  • By Plane: The Blue Danube Airport in Hörsching is about 15 km away from the city of Linz. The most frequent way to get to the city or to the campus of the Johannes Kepler University Linz is:
    • Bus to the main train station in Linz: The bus (red color) from the airport to the main station only leaves on certain times (06:00, 08:00, 10:00, 12:00, 14:00, 16:00, 18:00, 20:00, 23:10). The fee is about 26 ATS (about 2 Euro). Now continue with "By train".
    • Shuttle service to the next train station (Hörsching), train to the main train station of Linz: The shuttle service is free, but the train to the main train station (Hauptbahnhof) in Linz costs 21 ATS (about 1.5 Euro). Now continue with "By train".
    • Taxi: A taxi is about 320-350 ATS (about 25 Euro) to the city of Linz. It is about 450 ATS (about 33 Euro) to get to the Johannes Kepler University Linz or to the Hotel Sommerhaus (Raab-Heim).
