By Plane Directly to Graz
Graz has its own international airport called Thalerhof. The international airport code is GRZ. There are generally very good international flight connections to Graz airport. Most indirect flights to/from Graz Thalerhof go over Frankfurt (FRA), and Vienna (VIE).
To get from the Graz airport to the city it is preferable to either take a cab or the bus. A timetable for the busses leaving from and arriving at the Graz airport can be found here. If your hotel is located in the city center or near the IAIK we recommend you to take the bus to the Graz city center and leave at bus stop Jakominiplatz.
Additionally you can also take the train to the city. The train station Flughafen Graz - Feldkirchen is located a few hundred meters from the airport. The train arrives at the Graz Hauptbahnhof (central station).
By Plane to Vienna, by Train From Vienna to Graz
If you can't fly to Graz directly, it is also possible to fly to Vienna and arrive in Graz per train. From Vienna International Airport you can take the train to Graz Hauptbahnhof (central station). You need to change at least once at Vienna Südbahnhof (South train station). Some of the trains require you to change a second time (at Bruck an der Mur or Leoben). For trains going from Vienna to Graz see the online schedule information of the Austrian national train operator OEBB (use the station names Airport VIE and Graz for the search).
With approximately 250.000 inhabitants, Graz is the 2nd largest city of Austria and belongs to the region of Styria. In the city of Graz you find four universities (the University, the University of Technology, the Medical University of Graz, and the University of Music and Dramatic Arts). Among other sights, Graz owns a pleasant old center, which is one of the best preserved in Europe and was awarded World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1999. There are nice hills and mountains nearby to the north. Furthermore, the region south of Graz is a wine growing area with rustic wineries and many award winning winemakers.
