Your personal Vie-Ber

First of all we want to thank you for your interest in and your suggestions for Vie-Ber. There have been a lot of requests concerning the Vie-Ber journey from FAT to WDC, so in order to keep this trip and the planning for it as individual as possible, we decided to provide you with all the informations you need to join our standard-program, and let you book your personal Vie-Ber yourself. The advantage is, that you are completely independent from our Vie-Ber (well, as independent as you want it). You choose, which part of the journey youi'd like to join, and which parts you'd rather skip. The disadvantage is of course, that there is a little work for you to do, but if you follow our instructions, this is done in a couple of minutes.

If you want to discuss and plan with other participants (sharing rooms, cars, whatever), please make use of our board

Remember, the standard program starts in Vienna on Monday, after FAT (the FAT team will care for your transport from the venue to your accomodation in Vienna). We will spend the rest of the day doing some sightseeing. For the night in Vienna, you have to book your accomodation.

Vienna

Reservation period from Mon July 31st, 2006 to Tue August 1st, 2006.

Our suggestion is "Hotel Porzellaneum", usually a students dormitory, but during summer working as a hostel.
Hotel Porzellaneum, low buget, central, no English HP available at the moment
Better equipped rooms
in the 1st and 2nd floor
Single RoomEUR 22,00EUR 24,00
Double RoomEUR 40,00EUR 42,00
Quad RoomEUR 76,00EUR 78,00
All floors have hallway shower/wc (there is no shower/wc in your room). Mind the check out time is 9:00am, but you can leave your luggage there. If you want to make your reservation, you can do that here

However, this might be not enough comfort for some of you, so there are some other possibilities:

Hotel Pension Franz: old fashioned viennese Hotel, more comfort, central
(please do open the HP with internet explorer)
Reservation: http://www.hotelpensionfranz.at/english/reserv_e.htm
Room rates per night and per room, including breakfast-buffet, services and taxes
Single room with shower and WCEUR 65
Double room with shower/bath and WCEUR 95
Triple bed room with shower/bath and WCEUR 119
Four bed room with shower/bath and WCEUR 129

Hotel Papageno: very nice unique rooms, comfortable, central, English HP
SingleEUR 78 up to EUR 139
DoubleEUR 89 up to EUR 145

Youth Hostel Wien-Myrthengasse: rather central, low buget

Wherever you spend that night, we suggest that you book without breakfast (if possible), since we are planning to start the Tuesday with a typical Viennese Breakfast at our meeting-point for the next day.

We will spend the whole Tuesday in Vienna, sightseeing, relaxing, a mixture of both, whatever suits you best.

In the evening (11.30 pm), we plan to leave Vienna by train, in order to arrive in Munich the next day (06.21 am).

BERLIN

The final destination of our journey and of course the place where it reaches it's ultimate climax, the WDC. But not only, Berlin is much morae than just a place where you can play Diplomacy. So there will be a bit of everything on the tournament schedule: sighseeing-events, barbecue, all sorts of games and in the end: Chill out on Sunday.

We hope, this page provides you with all the informations you need to plan your personal Vie-Ber. If you stick to our suggestions, you will be going with the flock. If you have more individual plans, feel free to contact us for some assistance.
