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“
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.),
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
REIMBURSEMENT of Travel Costs FOR JOURNEYS WITHIN THE Erasmus+ YOUTH IN ACTION PROGRAMME
Please keep in mind that you have to keep every ticket, gas bill, boarding pass etc. – otherwise we cannot pay for your travel costs and stay!
At the end of your journey, we need the completed form (you can find it below) and the proof of all the costs costs from each of the participants.
Get in touch
If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org)! 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!
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.
