  I was in Vienna, and I will re-interate that this was a problem. 
  It would not have been as bad, had the conference space had 3-4
bars/lounges/restaurants that were available until midnight.
  I.e. I don't really need to have my room next door, as long as I can 
"run into" people in the bar/lounge reasonably frequently.
  (Having my bed next door, means that I can run into people at 3 in the
morning, when my time zone hasn't adjusted yet...)

  Cool with me!
  I appreciate knowing the continent. It helps me a lot with budget planning. 

  I want to say that when looking at cities, I for one, I am very happy
with changing from air to train. 
  I.e. I'd fly to Frankfurt or Amsterdam and take the train to, for
       instance, Dortmund, Hannover, Metz, Nancy, Lyon, ....
