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:

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.),

Get in touch

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: tba
      – 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

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

If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us (!


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.
