The 5th CHEOPS Science Workshop and the Open Time Workshop will be held at Schloss Seggau, which is located in the premises of the town of Leibnitz, in the South of Austria.
The meeting is partially financed by IWF, EUROPLANET, and AUSTROSPACE.
The hotel and workshop venue are both located inside the castle.
If travelling by plane, the closest airport is that of Graz, which hosts several daily connections to Vienna, Munich, and Frankfurt.
From Graz airport, Seggau is reachable by car (car rental or taxi) or by train (to Leibnitz and then taxi to Seggau).
A taxi ride from Graz airport to Seggau will cost about 50 €.
There are not many planes flying to Graz and it will be likely that several attendees will be on the same flight to Graz, hence sharing a taxi may be easily possible and very convenient.
Taxis can be found just outside of airport's arrival area.
The airport's train station is located 300 metres away from the airport and there is about 1 train each hour to Leibnitz. Any train directed towards South will stop in Leibnitz.
Train tickets can be bought at the train station vending machine.
From Leibnitz train station it is necessary to take a taxi to reach Seggau. The ride will cost about 10 €. You can call a taxi in Leibnitz using one of these numbers:
