Vienna Guide

Money Exchange:

We recommend using a bank (small change offices usually charge higher fees). The closest bank is:

Bank Austria Creditanstalt
Wiedner Hauptstrasse 11
A-1040 Wien

It is across the street in front of the Conference Venue. A small map can be found here.
Opening hours are Mon - Fri 8:00 - 12:30 and 13:30 - 15:00 (on Thu until 17:00). On Saturday and Sunday money change offices are open at the airport, at the Südbahnhof and Westbahnhof railway stations, and in Kärntnerstrasse.

Bankomat Logo Cash distributor machines (ATMs) are located next to most banks (watch for a green-blue very broad "B" sign), either directly in the street, or inside the lobby (accessible with your card). Cards generally accepted are Maestro, Euro/MasterCard, DinersClub and Visa.


Shops are generally open Mon - Fri 9:00 - 18:00 and Sat 9:00 - 13:00. Many larger shops and shopping centres are open until 19:00 (on Sat until 17:00). Shops remain closed on Sundays (with a few exceptions, notably at the airport and at big petrol stations).
