Venue

TS1 will take place at different lecture halls in TU Graz' Inffeldgasse Campus (see the TU Graz map). Use the tram to get to "Schulzentrum St. Peter", and then walk to the building Inffeldgasse 13 for the registration. 

Important things to consider:

  • Trainings are in different buildings in Inffeldgasse which can be accessed by a short 5 minute walk.
  • The IT-Training room and the small seminar room is in Inffeldgasse 13
  • The small lecture hall (HS i10) is in Inffeldgasse 23, the larger one (HS i3) in Inffeldgasse 25B.
  • There is a no smoking policy in all buildings (also, restaurants have a no smoking policy in Graz).

Travel information

Graz has an airport, is integrated into Austria's train & coach network, and is also easy to reach by car. Graz Tourismus offers and overview on how to get to Graz (CLICK HERE).

The TS1 venue is a 10 minutes tram ride outside of the city center. There is a 30 minute walk to the city center (i.e., Jakominiplatz & Hauptplatz)

Graz is great for walking and biking. Only for longer distances you may want to take the tram. Note, the tram is FREE in the inner city (main to Jakomini square + 1 Stop, see the "Altstadtbim" sticker and our "About Graz" page).

A 1 hr. ticket for tram or bus is 2.50€, and can be bought from a bus driver or a ticket machine inside the tram.

Parking: the closest option is to park in the "Grüne Zone" (open-air parking) in Brucknerstraße, and then walk to Inffeldgasse. There is no large GUEST PARKING on the campus (due to heavy reconstruction works). Open-air parking is possible (up to 3 hrs in the "blue" zone; in the "green" zone is cheaper and you can park multiple days for ~7€/day; you can pay at pay machines locally, most of them accept Maestro cards). You can find a map of the parking zones HERE.

Other things to consider:

  • Smoking: almost all resturants have a no-smoking policy, but there are a few bars/restaurants where smoking is allowed. 
  • Tips: Tipping is not expected but appreciated (5 to 10%).
  • Currency: 1 Euro is the official currency. Credit and debit cards are widely accepted, also in taxis.
  • Electricity is supplied at the European standard (220 volts A/C, 50 Hz, two round pin type outlets).
  • Shops are typically open from 07:30 to 19:00 hrs. Monday through Friday, and 07:30 to 18:00 on Saturdays. Only at main station and the airport you will find shops that are open on Sundays (typically 6:00 to 22:00 hrs).
  • Emergency: dial 112, this number works even on cell phones without a SIM card. Calls are answered in German and also in English. Direct numbers are

    • 122 - fire brigade
    • 133 - police
    • 144 - rescue/ambulance
