How to reach the WPI from the Vienna International Airport
Our address is “Oskar Morgensternplatz 1, 1090 Wien”. The tall white
tower towards the east (facing the Donaukanal river) is the Faculty
Entrance at “Türkenstrasse” or “Berggasse”. WPI is on the 8 floor.
Taxi: After exiting the baggage claim area to the arrival hall, you
see the usual pictogram for “taxi”. The cars are directly outside
the building only 10 m away. The prize to WPI is about 50 EUR, time
is 25 minutes. Credit cards accepted.
Uber: a bit more complicated to fetch (most drivers ask you to go one
floor up to the departure floor). Cost about 36 EUR.
Train (Bus): After exiting the baggage claim area to the arrival
hall, you keep right and see the usual pictogram for “train”.
There is an illuminated green information screen on the wall on the
other side where you see the next bus (to “City” = Morzinplatz)
and next trains.
There is a ramp going down to the train station. You can take the slightly faster, more expensive train “CAT” (every half hour, 16 min trip, 14 EUR) or the commuter train “S7” or “Rex7” (23 or 20 min trip). Either way, exit the train at the station “Wien Mitte-Landstraße”.
Note: The subway in Vienna requires a different ticket than the train. If you take a commuter train (S7 or Rex7), it is already included in the purchase. However, the ticket for a CAT train does not cover the subway, and you will need to purchase a separate ticket at the red terminals, which are located at the entrance of every subway station.
Once at “Wien Mitte”, follow the green signs leading to the “U4” metro line, board in the direction “Wien Heiligenstadt” and exit at “Roßauer Lände”. Exit direction of the rear of the train, cross the busy 3 lane one way street and go left for 200 m until Berggasse. The white 12 story tower is “Fakultät für Mathematik”, where the WPI is located.
