Kőszeg is a small town with a population of about 12,000. Although the development of tourism is encouraging here, the accommodation possibilities within an easy walking distance of the conference venue are limited. We highly recommend you to book your room as soon as possible to get the best place for the most reasonable price.
Under the ’Accommodation’ menu is listed a wide range of options from hotels to guest houses. Select your preferred choice from the list and the conference rates can be achieved when you contact the provider and quote the reference “iecon18”. This page will be kept up to date regarding current availability of rooms.
There are various options to reach our conference venue. As Kőszeg is not on the main transport routes you cannot reach the town directly with train or bus.
In order for you to have a confortable and quick transfer, we highly recommend you to register for one of the reserved coaches we offer you.
Your travel options are listed under the menu Arrival and departure.
Please contact Zsuzsa Berecz at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions regarding transportation!
Hopefully we will have good luck with the weather; however, evenings and nights can be quite cold even chilly at this time of the year. So please bring warm clothes, particularly for the field trips when we will stay outdoors for hours. Comfortable trekking boots and rain gear are important, too. If the weight limit of your luggage allows it, bring your own binoculars and of course your camera.
The official currency in Hungary is Forint (abbreviated as HUF or Ft), and you should be prepared to have some forints since card payment is not accepted everywhere. The exchange rate at the moment is about 1 Euro to 310 HUF.
IMPORTANT! The staff of the conference cannot exchange currencies. However there are some exchange offices in town and ATMs are available in many places around the main square, so we would not recommend you to have too much cash on you.
