Travel and transport (not just from the uk)

Postby erske » Mon May 30, 2011 6:39 pm

Haven't been on here for a while, and just realized I've got no Idea how to get to the place from the airport (I got spoiled by Speciell- and kallef-Travel last year). Can we arange cars who pick people up, or is there eazy to find trains or busses? Anyone ells arriving at the same time as me?

I'm arriving to Wiena airport 10:55 on Friday. And leaving, one day early ( :( ), on Wednesday from Wiena airport at 11:15..


Anyway, looking forward to it!

Please bring your own tent, sleeping bag, etc. or find someone to share a tent
There will be a dining room for the meals as well as toilets and showers.
For those who stay in the hostel: sheets will be provided. Please bring slippers, because you are not allowed to walk into the hostel with shoes you use on the streets.

We rent two gym halls from monday to thursday and have a big soccer field at the camp site.

Arrival:
Arrival day is Friday, 1.July, we start the VFW with dinner
VFW will last until Thursday, 7. July, we will share lunch together, clean up the camp and leave in the afternoon.

Arrival to Wr. Neustadt:
by plane: arrive at Vienna International Airport in Schwechat, take the City Airport Train (CAT)
to Wien Landstraße (single ticket for an adult 8 euro), from Wien Landstraße you can take a train to Wr. Neustadt (if you take an Intercity or Eurocity it takes about half an hour to get to Wr. Neustadt, if you take the regional trains (Schnellbahn) it takes mostly one hour). Price for the train is 7,20. From the train station in Wr. Neustadt to Martinsgasse 9 it is 2km walk. (If you have a lot of luggage Felix and I can also get you by car from the trainstation.) If you walk, turn left when you step out the trainstation main building, walk until you can turn right into Kollonitschgasse, follow this street until the next big crossroads, then turn left into Babenbergerring, follow this street for about 1km until you can turn left into Martinsgasse. (if you need a map, help yourself with google maps or contact me)

by train from Vienna:
you can take a train to Wr. Neustadt from Wien Meidling (if you take an Intercity or Eurocity it takes about half an hour to get to Wr. Neustadt, if you take the regional trains (Schnellbahn) it takes mostly one hour). Price for the train is 7,20. From the train station in Wr. Neustadt to Martinsgasse 9 it is 2km walk. (If you have a lot of luggage Felix and I can also get you by car from the trainstation.) If you walk turn left when you step out the trainstation main building, walk until you can turn right into Kollonitschgasse, follow this street until the next big crossroads, then turn left into Babenbergerring, follow this street for about 1km until you can turn left into Martinsgasse. Important: If you arrive by train, get off at Wr. Neustadt Hauptbahnhof! There are more train stations in Wr. Neustadt, pick the right one! (again, if you need a map, help yourself with google maps or contact me)

by car:

at Südautobahn (A2) take exit "Wr. Neustadt West" , when you leave the ramp turn right, follow the street for about 1km, keep going straight ahead,
you pass the sign "Wr. Neustadt", cross the roundabout in the same direction, turn left into Maria-Theresien-Ring, then turn right into
Ferdinand-Porsche-Ring, go straight into Babenberger-Ring, turn left into Martinsgasse, nr. 9.

Is anyone going from vienna to VFW friday evening? I have to make the trip to wiener neustadt twice, and wouldnt mind some company for the second trip. I would go by train unless someone offers me some other means of transportation.

I can join you (if it's not going to be that late). Do you have room for my bags on the first trip? ;)

I'm arriving at the airport at 16.30 and would like some company too :D
Do you want me to take the train to Vienna from the airport or is it on the way?
