The participants and the speaker gather at the Schlossberg-Restaurant in the center of Graz for an evening filled with good food, easy networking and a breathtaking view of Graz.
The afternoon will start with an aperitif before the first course with free seating.
The Networking Dinner will take place at the Restaurant Schlossberg at 19:00. We recommend using the tram and the Schlossberg funicular (Schlossbergbahn) to reach this location.
If you aren’t familiar with the area we recommend to refrain from using the stairs of the elevator to reach the top.
Am Schlossberg 7
The easiest and fastest way is to go by tram and use the Schlossberg-Lift. Take the tramline 4 or 5 to direction “Andritz” and exit at the tram station “Schlossbergplatz/Murinsel”.
Go straight ahead to the Schlossberg. Take the smaller entrance on the left and ride the Schlossberg-Lift to the top.
After you exit the elevator, turn right and walk down a flight of stairs past the bar.
Turn right and go through the tree-lined avenue for about 200m.
Take the second road to the left that goes uphill.
When you reach the souvenir shop keep following the road by taking a sharp right.
Once you reach the fork in the road after the beer garden, take the left path towards the building titled “Schlossbergbahn”, after which you reached your destination at the Schlossberg Restaurant.
Only participants with a two day ticket and the speakers are invited to the Networking Dinner.
There is a limited capacity at the Schlossberg Restaurant and therfore we sadly can’t arrange additional seats.
There is no dress code for the Networking Dinner. We want you to have a good time, so wear what you feel most comfortable in.
