CouchHack 2013, December 13th - 16th Vienna, Austria
Where Its At
On the weekend of 13 to 16 December, we are inviting all CouchDB hackers, and those who want to be one to CouchHack Vienna. Or even those who just want to learn a little about CouchDB. Heck, you can come if you would like to chill out with passionate tech people.
Vienna is located in Central Europe, and has been a social, political, and cultural hub long before North Americans started building railways. So you might even want to come by a couple of days early and check it out!
Be a Part of History
Previous CouchHacks have been run in Europe and North America in:

Gimme the Details
The closest Public transport stops are at:
Metro: U4 Pilgramgasse Bus:14A Arbeitergasse Bus: 59A Reinprechtsdorferstrasse
A very convenient option is to go via tram or train to Matzleinsdorfer Platz and then walk straight "downhill" towards Siebenbrünnnengasse.
For finding how to get from A to B, use the excellent smartphone app "AnachB" which is German for A to B. It's really good, and has an android and ios version. They have a webpage which isn't as nice, anachb.at
Planning & Updates will be on Lanryd.
How do I get to Vienna, or get around in Vienna?
Vienna has awesome public transport, and a free** city bike system. Consider either getting day passes for the Metro (all buses, trains, underground and trams) or using the excellent bike network.
- Getting to Vienna, from the airport is easy - either with the CAT express or the S-bahn for half the price.
- Using public transport - either website or install the iPhone app AnachB.at
- Using the free CityBike system, book online or pay upfront. Pick a bike up anywhere, use it for an hour, and drop it back at almost any Metro stop or hundreds of other convenient locations. Note the conviently small toggle for English in the top left hand corner!

After I've had enough CouchDB, what should I see in Vienna?
Almost everything you can imagine can be found in Vienna, and most of it conveniently accessible with train/tram or citybike. So where to start?
- The Naschmarkt for food from around the world, a large outdoor market.
- Nearby Karlsplatz has a fantastic modern museum, a stunning church, and takes you in through to the old city centre.
- The Museum Quarter is self explanatory but stunning in both architecture and the sheer number and variety of museums. It's the Mall of Museums!
- Vienna is overflowing with parks and gardens, the Botanic and Schweitzer Gardens near the Belvedere Palace, or the almost 40km square Prater park across the river.
- Palaces - Belvedere, SchÃ¶nbrunn, the Parliament Buildings and MOAR! - LMGTFY? Approximately 57 to choose from.
