Accommodation – Arrival - Registration
We offer accommodation arrangements, please contact Elisabeth Happ (AIRTH2019@uibk.ac.at), she will prepare individual hotel offers for you (less than ten walking minutes from the Thursday presentation). If you like to book your accommodation on your own, we recommend choosing accommodation in the city center. In the city center, the conference location and the railway station are in walking distance. Please let Elisabeth Happ know if you don’t need her booking support.
As we visit the Hohe Salve area on the last conference day on Saturday participants can also opt to stay in that region (for detailed information please contact Elisabeth Happ - AIRTH2019@uibk.ac.at). From there it is easy by train to Innsbruck or Munich airport (about 2 – 2.5 hours depending on connection).
