Guided City Tour ‘Science in Vienna’
On Wednesday evening you are invited to join an extraordinary guided tour through the heart of Vienna. During a 90 minutes walk, we will not only come along the most famous must-sees, but will also dive into the history of science of Austria’s capital.
For centuries, Vienna has been a leading center for science, culture, and music. Founded in 1365, the University of Vienna has been a fertile space for scholars to shape the course of history. Many masterminds, such as Berta von Suttner, August Friedrich von Hayek or Sigmund Freud, have left their marks in the city. Until today, their imprints may still be experienced in the Viennese culture and are visible in architectural monuments.
Together we will trace back the lives and works of famous scholars who substantially shaped the city’s history. We will visit places where they found their inspiration, gathered with their peers and created value for the city and its citizens.
We will meet at Stephansplatz (in front of the main gate of the cathedral; see map) at 7:00 pm. To get there, take underground U1 and get off at underground station “Stephansplatz”. Use the exit “Stephansplatz” to approach the cathedral.
The tour will end in the city center where you will find several possibilities for having light dinner or coffee.

Conference Gala Dinner
The Conference Gala Dinner will take place at the Campus of WU Vienna University of Economics and Business.
„Mensa WU“ is situated at the architecturally formidable and newly constructed campus. The newly built, innovative and trendsetting location with its 300m² illuminated tree-wall gives you the impression of sitting directly in the forest. Not at least therefore the “Mensa WU” has been awarded with three design prizes (namely the “German design award”, “IF Designpreis” and “Austrian Staatspreis” in the category design). Our in-house catering will delight you with culinary delicacies. We are pleased to offer you a typical Austrian Buffet with various local dishes.
