Travel Tips

Getting There

Vienna International Airport (VIE) is 11 miles southeast of the city center and offers direct flights from the United States and major cities in Europe.


Busses from VIE run to and from Schwedenplatz, Westbahnhof, and Erdberg. Trains (schnellbahn and City Airport Train) run to and from Wien Mitte and Wien Hauptbahnhof. 

Bratislava Airport (BTS) in neighboring Slovakia offers discount connections to select European cities and is accessible to Vienna via bus (travel time ca. 1 hour)

The closest major station to KLAVIERgalerie (the main site of Mélange Vienna) is Westbahnhof.

For cheaper airfares, participants from outside Europe are advised to fly to a major hub city first (London, Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam), then take a train ( or the following low-fare airlines to Bratislava or Vienna: Ryanair ( and EasyJet (


KLAVIERgalerie is located next to Mariahilfer Strasse -  one of the most important shopping streets in Vienna - just before Vienna's West Train Station (Westbahnhof). There are a number of pension houses and hotels in the area, and the close proximity to subway stations (U3, U6: Westbahnhof, U3: Neubaugasse) make KLAVIERgalerie accessible no matter where you stay!

Mélange Vienna also recommends AirBnB

Please note that Vienna can be extremely hot in the summer time. We would advise to either bring a portable fan (some hostels rent these out for a fee), or splurging on a room with air condition!
