We recommend to fly to Graz and subsequently travel to Admont on Sunday, July 5. This is best done by going to Selzthal by train, and from there to take a taxi. The way back to Graz is most conveniently done as the last part of the excursion.
For Flights to Graz, see this web page.
From the airport to the main railway station in Graz it is best to take a cab. Public transport is not very freqent and there are hardly any direct connections.
A list of train connections from Graz Hauptbahnhof (main railway station) to Selzthal follows below. If you want to find your own, see Austrian Federal Railways (note the bugs in their computing the total time of a trip). A star indicates that there is a subsequent train connection to Admont, so in this case your cab ride to the conference venue is shorter.
