Salzburg and the University are fairly easy to access via diverse means of well-connected transportation.


The best way to travel to Salzburg depends on your origin. Salzburg does have a regional airport with connections to nearby airports- we recommend to check this possibility if available to you. 

If you are in continental Europe, train may be an good option- there are many frequent connections to cities as far away as Paris, Berlin, and Budapest.

If you are outside of Europe, flying into either Munich or Vienna and then taking the train to Salzburg could be an option too. There is a train station inside each of these two airports, and the ticket desk can easily help you to purchase a connecting ticket to Salzburg. You can also rent a car and drive to Salzburg (about 2 and 3 h from Munich and Vienna, respectively) 

Once in Salzburg, there are many options to arrive to your accommodation and the conference center, including bus, taxi, car rental, and bicycle. You can read more about these in local transportation.
