The Hotel Prinz Eugen is located in the immediate vicinity of the famous Belvedere Palace in a traditional Embassy district of Vienna, opposite the South Railway Station (Suedbahnhof) with the adjoining Air Terminal. With the excellent traffic connections to the hotel, one can easily reach the city center in 5 minutes by Underground U1 (Suedtirolerplatz station), or by Tram D, opposite the hotel, or you may walk (approx. 15 min) through the extensive gardens of Belvedere Palace.

The discounted prices (offered for participants of the CSM/KSS'2005 workshop, if booking is made through IIASA) are € 61,- or € 92 (for a single or a double room, respectively) for one night, including breakfast and taxes.

Reasonably priced hotels may be difficult to arrange at a later date. Therefore we have made a block booking in the Hotel Prinz Eugen. Participants who would like to stay in this hotel should complete the final registration form not later than June 30, 2005 (we may not be able to help you in arranging your accommodation later).

There is also a limited number of IIASA's Guest rooms available for participants who prefer to stay in Laxenburg. The prices for rooms are 21€ and 18€ (for a single room in the Schloss Restaurant and the GP building, respectively).

Participants who prefer to make own arrangements for accommodation are encouraged to do this well in advance.
