ECC 2017 – arrival – transportation

Dear friends,

in a few days you will come to Vienna for the ECC 2017. We are looking forward to welcome you!

Some information about arrival and transportation from the airport: all of you coming to Vienna by plane will be picked up and brought to the bowling centre to drop the bowling bags there (congress delegates will be brought directly to the hotel). We have private mini busses for transportation – in case you do not see our drivers in the arrival hall with the ECC logo, please ask at the taxi stand of 40100 in the arrival hall (see attached jpeg). They know where the drivers are and can give them a call. Please do not go by taxi on your own, unless you are told by our drivers or informed by us.

Those of you staying at hotel Senator or Donauwalzer will be brought immediately after dropping the bowling bags to the hotels. Those of you staying at another hotel can / must arrange a transport from the centre on their own, preferably with our taxi partner 40100 (tel no. *43 1 40100).

When coming to Vienna by car, please note, that in Vienna we have a district-wide short-term parking zone in most districts (in the 17th and 18th district Monday thru Friday from 9.00 – 19.00, except on 26th October, as it is a holiday). Parking during the day costs 2.10 EUR per hour, with a permitted maximum parking time of 3 hours. You can either park your car in the garage of hotel Senator (at a special price of 16 EUR per day) or in the garage of Plus Bowling (3.50 EUR for 5 hours, 7 EUR for 10 hours; you must go with your parking ticket to the counter desk in the centre and pay there to get that price). On weekends (21st, 22nd, 28th, 29th October) and on holidays (26th October) parking is in principle free of charge in the streets all day long.  In some shopping streets there are additional short-term parking zones, where you have to pay also on Saturday from 8.00 – 12.00 (Hernalser Hauptstrasse, Joergerstrasse).

Please distribute this information to your athletes, coaches, team managers and congress delegates!
