The pandemic has clearly shown that there is still no substitute for a personal gathering yet. Conferences are essential for academic exchange and progress, but, of course, have a significant impact on an individual’s carbon footprint as they involve mobility. When planning your trip to the MUM conference in Vienna, we highly encourage you to consider traveling by train or night train instead of taking a short-distance flight. You will notice that in many cases the duration of the entire trip hardly differs and the comfort is even higher. Contrary to their image, trains can also be a cost-effective way to travel, especially if you book your tickets in advance. By choosing to travel by train, you can help us make a difference for the environment, considerably improve the carbon footprint of the event, and set a positive example for more sustainable conferences. We understand, however, that to reach Vienna from outside the EU, long-distance flights cannot yet reasonably be replaced by train connections. You will find information regarding flights to Vienna International Airport (VIE) below.
Train and Night Train
Due to its central location in the heart of Europe, Vienna makes it easy to be reached by train from many different European countries. The capital of Austria is well-connected and offers you a convenient way to travel without the hassle of security checks, check-in, and endless waiting at the airport. Instead, you can use your time on board effectively by studying the conference program, preparing your slides, or simply enjoying the beautiful scenery of Austria passing by as you travel. Moreover, Austria offers an extensive network of night trains that are a convenient and fast way to travel. This allows you to sleep during the journey and arrive at your destination refreshed and ready to go.
