How to get to Brno

By train

Brno is well-connected to several major railway lines; it is situated on a direct route from Vienna to Berlin and from Warsaw to Vienna (with a change in Břeclav).

By plane

There is only a small airport directly in Brno. You can get there only from several destinations. Check the current flights here.

However, Brno benefits from its vicinity to the capital cities of the two neighboring countries – Austria and Slovakia. Therefore we strongly recommend flying to Vienna.

Participants are discouraged from traveling to Brno via the main airport in the Czech Republic, i. e. Vaclav Havel airport in Prague, since the journey to Brno is more complicated and takes longer (about 3.5–4 hours).

There is a direct bus/train line by RegioJet from Vienna Schwechat Airport to Brno center (Hotel Grand), with buses/trains going in each direction almost every other hour. The journey takes only two hours. Check the current times and buy tickets online here. Please note that the tickets should be bought in advance.

You can also use a train operated by Czech Railways from Wien Flughafen with a transfer at Wien Hauptbahnhof. Check the connection and buy tickets here.

Should you wish to travel via Prague, you can buy a bus ticket with the RegioJet as well (this entails a bus change at the main bus station in Prague).

When traveling out of the country via Prague, you might want to add some extra time in case of traffic jams on the way.

How to get to the conference venue

The public transportation in Brno is very efficient, with numerous buses, trams, and trolleybuses serving the whole city and surroundings. There are two main points where lines connect: at the railway station in the south of the city center and Česká street north of the city center, with trams lines going around the ring road.

The most comfortable is to pay for the travel directly in the vehicle by a credit card using the system Beep and Go.

Or you can buy tickets from ticket machines or tobacconist kiosks throughout the city (20 CZK for 15 minutes, 25 CZK for 60 minutes; mostly, you will need coins, but there are also some machines accepting credit cards at more important stops). Upon entering the vehicle, you must validate your ticket in one of the stamping machines onboard as soon as possible.
