ARES 2006 will take place in the city of Vienna, the capital of Austria. Vienna University of Technology is located in the center of Vienna, at Karlsplatz with its baroque Karlskirche (St. Charles’ Church), just beside the Ringstrasse, Emperor Franz Josef’s circular boulevard, which is surrounding the inner city. The famous State Opera is just a stone's throw away from the conference venue, and following the Ringstrasse from there you will enjoy an impressive walk passing by Vienna's main attractions: the Hofburg Palace, the Parliament, Naturhistorisches Museum (Museum of Natural History) and Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Arts), the Burgtheater, University of Vienna (one of the oldest universities in Europe) and the Rathaus, Vienna's City Hall. The conference dinner will take place in the magnificent Festival Hall of Vienna's City Hall.
At the very heart of Vienna, Stephansdom (St. Stephen's Cathedral) is located, starting from there you will discover the cobblestone squares and medieval lanes, conjuring up images of Vienna's past. Definitely, you will not be able to resist the delicious scent of coffee and Viennese pastries inviting you to the many lovely cafés and restaurants in Vienna's Old Town.
If you stay longer in Vienna, you certainly will not want to miss a visit of Schönbrunn Palace, the summer retreat of Empress Maria Theresia with its impressive gardens, a ride on the Riesenrad, Vienna's famous giant ferris wheel located in the Prater, or a night in one of the many theatres or music halls of Vienna - the city of music.
Vienna is welcoming you and will overwhelm you with its multi-faceted culture.
