Looking for a travel arrangement? You can send a travel request to firstname.lastname@example.org (ask for Chantal or Peter). In order to get the best rate, we strongly recommend you to include the following information:
You will receive an offer from BCD Sports to complete the accommodation request. All further (financial) arrangements will be dealt directly with BCD Sports. City Mountainbike is no longer involved as intermediary.
When arriving from Vienna or Klagenfurt, take the highway A2 and the highway exit Graz-Ost. After approximately 3 km you will arrive at the event location – the city center of Graz. When coming from Salzburg or Linz, take the highway A9 and the highway exit Graz Nord, you will reach your destination after approximately 7 km.
When flying directly to Graz, the city airport Graz Thalerhof (GRZ) is approximately 12 km away from the city center. There are a lot of direct flights connecting Graz with Vienna, Munich, Ljubljana or Salzburg – among others. Your alternative: Airport Vienna (Wien Schwechat (VIE)) with many more international connections and a two-hour drive away from the city center Graz by car.
Our recommendation is to use the FlixBus, as an adorable and fast option. Depending on your point of departure, there are multiple stops in Graz. The closest stop is Giradigasse, which is a 5 min walk to the event location.
If you exit a Flixbus at the main railway station or come by train, take the tram line 1,3,6 or 7 to Hauptplatz.
