Arrival by car
Option one:
Highway A1 from Vienna (60 km) / or coming from Salzburg (220 km) to St. Pölten – take the exit to Krems and leave the highway in Mautern – then follow the street signs leading you up to Stift Göttweig.

Option two:
Highway S 5 from Vienna (85 km) to Traismauer – take the exit to Krems and leave the highway in Mautern– then follow the street signs leading you up to Stift Göttweig

Arrival by train or bus
From Vienna & Salzburg:
Westbahn to St. Pölten – change to the train to „Paudorf“ or to „Furth bei Göttweig“

From Vienna:
take the Franz-Josefs-Bahn to Krems – then change to the train to „Furth bei Göttweig“ or „Paudorf“, bus to Göttweig Abbey.

If the distance allows it, the cheapest option would be to rent a bus for your group (e.g. to rent a minibus). This option is also the one we would prefer you would consider. Additionally, it would be the most useful option for you to travel around – you can visit the Wachau or maybe you want to go to Vienna on Saturday afternoon etc.),

To-do list

There are some things we would like to ask you to do beforehand & to think of when travelling to Austria:

– Please send us the participant list (fill in the added Excel-sheet)

– Prepare your pitch for the youth event
      – 1 pitch per country, max. 2 presenters per pitch
      – topic: „innovations & improvements – a bright future for the European Union“
      – think about a suggestion for a business idea or a new life model for society
      – sequence: presentation should not last longer than 2 minutes
      – you will present in front of a jury consisting of politicians, industrialists and start-up experts

                                                                                                                       -> the best pitch wins a voucher for interrail tickets worth €500

– Bring your own laptop, tablet, smatphone, etc. to the event

erasmus_plus_participantlist  – please fill in the Excel-sheet & send it to max.filipsky@europaforum.at

Get in touch

If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us (max.filipsky@europaforum.at)! And if you want to talk over some aspects again – only with us or also with the other team leaders – we are more than willing to organize another ZOOMmeeting!

Tip

If you would like to expand your stay in Austria, we would suggest to stay in Vienna for a maximum of 2 extra nights.
These 2 extra nights have to be fully organized and payed for by yourself. The Erasmus+ program doesn’t allow a longer stay because if you stayed longer, you wouldn’t count as a project participant anymore. We wouldn’t receive any refund for you and therefore couldn’t hand over any financial support to you.

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT STIFT GÖTTWEIG!
