Getting there

Uraniastraße 1

The easiest way to get there is by subway ("U-Bahn"). The nearest station is U4 Schwedenplatz. Once at the station take the exit "Urania", from there its just a 2-minute walk straight ahead to the venue. A 24-hour ticket is 8€ and includes all of Vienna's public transport. A single ride is 2,40€.

Taxi / Car

If you want to take a taxi to the venue, telling the driver to go to "Urania" will suffice. UBER has been banned in Vienna but this changes every week or so. We'll make sure that this page stays up to date. There's also Bolt and Free Now in Vienna. A ride from Westbahnhof to Urania will cost you around 10-15€.

From the Airport

The nearest airport is Vienna Schwechat (VIE), located ~10km south of town. Local trains S7 or the CAT leave approximately every 15 minutes and run from the airport ("Flughafen Wien") to the city center ("Wien Mitte"). (Note: Local trains take a bit longer, but they're much cheaper.) From there it's either a short subway ride or a 700m walk to the venue.
