Networking dinner venue

The networking dinner will take place on Wednesday 24 October. It will be hosted at the Schloß Schönbrunn Orangerie.

During the Baroque age the Orangery not only housed rare and exotic plants, but also played an important role in courtly festivities. Erected after the mid-eighteenth-century, the Orangery was used under Joseph II as the setting for numerous receptions, feasts and theatre performances. It was here that the famous musical contest was fought between Wolfgang A. Mozart and Antonio Salieri. Keeping to this tradition, the Orangery today provides an imposing setting for events.

How to reach Schloß Schönbrunn Orangerie?
Use the Green Line (Vienna metro) U4 from the town center to metro station "Schönbrunn".
