Did you know it’s really easy to get to Vienna by train?
When we say easy, we mean comfortable with a cleaner conscience. That’s because shared public transit emits much less carbon (that increases climate change) than private transit, and rail travel is much more environmentally responsible than flying. When you choose comfort on a train to Vienna, you also vote for ESCRS by helping us reach our goal of 25% delegates arriving by climate friendlier transport!
So how does it work? There are lots of international and national train services offering trips to Vienna from other European centres.
Choosing Sparschiene Österreich and Sparschiene Europa saves not only carbon tonnes, but euros. These affordable tickets can be booked to six months in advance.
Top Tip: book early to avoid disappointment. Ticket numbers are limited.
