Entrance to the site is free. An attractive support program is also offered on each opening day. Other shops and restaurants in the BahnhofCity Wien Hauptbahnhof also create incentives for participants with non-cash prizes.

Games for the future

There is a deeper meaning behind the event: ÖBB specifically targets players and invites these young people to get an idea of ​​the digital future of railways in information platforms. The ÖBB also outlines opportunities for work on railways and concepts for future mobility. From the digital twin of the entire infrastructure – a digital image of systems, the railway network – as the basis for modern digital railway operations and maintenance. The end result is a faster, more comfortable, more punctual railway and a complete network. With the help of digitization, the performance of Austria’s railway system will double by 2040.

It is no coincidence that the arcade is closed on May 26th. The next day, May 27, 2023, the Austrian A1 Esports Festival will take place in Austria Center Vienna. In the super gaming and esports event, ÖBB will act as a partner and celebrate the final event of the ÖBB Next Level gaming hall as part of the event. Here, too, a special offer is offered to ÖBB apprentices: they can buy tickets in a specially prepared apprentice shop for free.
