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.
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 Room||EUR 22,00||EUR 24,00|
|Double Room||EUR 40,00||EUR 42,00|
|Quad Room||EUR 76,00||EUR 78,00|
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)

|Single room with shower and WC||EUR 65|

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).
We would suggest to book yourself a night train ticket from http://www.oebb.at/vip8/oebb/en/index.jsp

You can call +43 5 1717 and make your reservation with your credit card on the phone and pick up your ticket before leaving Vienna at the station (it works - don't worry!) or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org

We would suggest to book yourself a train ticket on Thursday

Direct trains leave Munich for example on
|Munich Hbf||Berlin Hbf|
|10:46 pm||17:04 pm||full price EUR 98|
|12:46 pm||19:04 pm||full price EUR 98|
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 email@example.com
