Vienna Waits for You!
The Mayor of Vienna cordially invites you to the official opening of this great conference. Don’t miss out on this fascinating evening in one of Vienna’s most beautiful buildings!
The Arkadenhof, where we will celebrate this event with light food and music is one of the biggest inner courtyards in Europe with a surface of 2.804 square meters!
To give you an impression of the dimensions: the choir-type oriel along the western wall is a reminder of the original project to build a chapel inside the City Hall!
The City of Vienna looks forward to welcoming you to ISMB/ECCB 2007 Opening Reception!
Vienna City Hall by public transport:
Take the underground U2 to station “Rathaus” (this is German for “City Hall”). As you exit the station you will already see the backside of City Hall. Pass it, so the building is to your left and take the entrance on this side.
