COVID information

The 3G rule (short for German “geimpft, getestet, genesen”, meaning “vaccinated, tested, recovered”) is used to define low-risk groups in epidemiological terms. The “Green Pass“ (app or printout) confirms that you are vaccinated, tested, or have recovered from COVID-19. If your vaccine requires two vaccinations, please make sure that your confirmation actually shows both vaccinations. Note: This will be checked; if you cannot provide a valid confirmation you cannot enter the Go7!

You need to wear an FFP2 mask in shops, on public transport and in station buildings.

Wherever you are required to show your 3G status (e.g., in the Go7 club or in restaurants) you do not need to wear a mask.

For entry regulations for Austria, see here and here.

Accommodation

Please book your own hostel, hotel or other accommodation using sites like Airbnb or booking.com.

Public transport

The Go7 club is located centrally in one of Vienna’s main shopping streets. The underground station Zieglergasse on the U3 (orange line) is directly adjacent.

You can buy public transport tickets using the Wien mobil app.

You can also use the Wiener Linien journey planner.

Or you can use this comprehensive public transport map (PDF).

Note that the underground line U2 (violet line) currently does not run between Karlsplatz and Schottenring; there is a U2Z tram as a replacement, or just use one of the trams that run along the Ringstraße.

How to get to the Go7

From Wien Hauptbahnhof (main railway station): Take the U1 line (direction Leopoldau) to Stephansplatz, then the U3 line (direction Ottakring) to Zieglergasse. You could also take the 13A bus (direction Laudongasse) to Neubaugasse, which is a two-minute walk away from the Go7.

From Wien Meidling: Take the line U6 (direction Floridsdorf) to Westbahnhof, then the U3 line (direction Simmering) to Zieglergasse.

From Wien Westbahnhof: Take the U3 line (direction Simmering) to Zieglergasse.

From Vienna International Airport: Take the regular S-Bahn line S7 (not the green CAT, which is an expensive tourist trap) towards Floridsdorf. You can buy a ticket for about EUR 4 at the machine, which is valid for the entire trip to the tournament location. At the stop Wien Mitte (Landstraße) change to the underground line U3 (direction Ottakring) and go to Zieglergasse. You could also take a Vienna Airport Lines bus to Westbahnhof; this is slightly more expensive (single ticket EUR 8, return ticket EUR 13) but convenient as you could also walk from Westbahnhof to the Go7 club.
