Traveling

By plane: Linz has a small international airport (IATA-Code: LNZ) with daily connections to Frankfurt (FRA) and Düsseldorf (DUS). Many flight booking systems also offer another "airport" in Linz, LZS, which is actually the central railway station (Hauptbahnhof) of Linz. Such connections are always via Vienna (VIE), where one has to change from airplane to train for the last "flight segment"; the trains leave directly from underneath the airport. The main international airports nearby Linz are Vienna (VIE, 2 hours by train/car) and Munich (MUC, 3 hours by train/car).

By train: Linz can be reached conveniently by train from Vienna, Salzburg, or Munich, for example. Please note that there are two different railway companies that offer connections to Linz: ÖBB and Westbahn. ÖBB tickets have to be purchased in advance (either online or at the ticket vending machine / counter at the train station), while Westbahn tickets are sold on the train. Tickets from one company are not valid for trains of the other company. If you book the train connection VIE-LZS as part of your flight, you may only use trains operated by ÖBB.

Local transportation: There is bus connection (bus no. 601) between the airport and the central railway station of Linz. From there, one has to take a bus (Postbus no. 311 or 313) and get off at the station "Hagenberg im Mühlkreis Ortsmitte" (takes about 50 minutes, EUR 5,50, see the full schedule). A taxi from the airport costs about 30 euros to the train station, and about 80 euros directly to Hagenberg.

Visa: Austria is part of the Schengen area, which means that citizens from countries outside the European union may need a visa for entering Austria. Here you can find out whether this applies to you, and how the visa application procedure works. In case you need an invitation letter for this (or for your academic institution who may request such a letter for funding applications), please contact the organizers at adg2020@risc.jku.at.
