Pre Congress Tour

Experience Bratislava & the Baroque Palace "Schloss Hof"

In the morning, a bus will transfer you from Vienna to Bratislava, the capital and largest city in Slovakia. Upon arrival, there will be a walking tour in the historical city centre, and lunch will be provided in a typical local restaurant. On the way back to Vienna, you will stop off at the Baroque palace "Schloss Hof". As one of the largest and most magnificent imperial residences in the Habsburg Empire, in the 18th Century Schloss Hof was the stunning setting for grandiose receptions and imperial festivities. A walk through the gardens will round off the tour perfectly. Only a few Baroque gardens in Europe were able to match the splendour and sophistication of those around Schloss Hof, which are laid out over seven terraces. During the bus transfer, the electronic toll system of the Slovak Republic, in operation since 1/1/2010, will be demonstrated. It was established to charge vehicles with total weight over 3.5t on motorways, expressways and 1st class roads. Vehicles with a total weight below 3.5t are charged through a vignette system.

The electronic toll collection system is unique and is based on GPS and GSM technology providing maximum flexibility. Vehicles do not need to slow down to pay the charges within the second largest toll network in the EU, second only to Germany in size.
