Building on the success of the last two years, the Crypto Commons Association calls on commoners of all trades to flock to the Austrian Alps, one hour south of Vienna, to spend one week at the Commons Hub and debate the role of the Commons in Blockchain and beyond.
Despite this long bear market, the crypto space is evolving at the usual outstanding speed and demands us to take a breath and make sense of what’s going on: what are the lessons we can learn from the last year of experimentations in funding public goods through Gitcoin, Giveth, Future Quest, Breadchain, DaoDrops, Metacrisis? What about the burgeoning ReFi ecosystem and all those projects quietly buidling behind the scene? How do we want to engage with the AI craze, and can the blockchain make this new flood of tools more democratic and generative? What about Data Unions, DeSci, UBI, post-blockchain, economic media, liberating structures and the social challenge of promoting plurality and diversity in the space?
Most importantly of all, are we doing our best to empower commoners and communities on the ground?
Join us and a curated group of professionals and projects that are spearheading the discussion on Commons on the blokchain, bring your unique perspective and experience, become part of our growing Commoners movement!
Like the first two editions, CCG23 will take place at the Commons Hub, in Reichenau an der Rax, Austria.
If you intend to stay at the Hub during the event, make sure to reserve your spot early, as there’s a limited amount of space!

How to reach the Commons Hub
The Commons Hub is located in Richard von Schoeller-Straße 9, 2651, Reichenau an der Rax, Austria.
You can use this Google Maps link to search for the fastest route from your starting point.
To plan your trip by train, we suggest using Trainline.
The nearest train station to the Hub is Payerbach-Reichenau Bahnof (”station” in German).
Keep in mind that Payerbach-Reichenau is a smaller station, and it might be more convenient, or faster, to search for trains heading to Vienna or Wiener Neustadt, and then getting a different train to reach Reichenau an der Rax.
If you are arriving in Vienna by plane, you can simply take the train route suggested by Maps. Try to avoid the CAT (City Airport Train), unless necessary — it’s a more expensive option that saves you only 10 minutes compared to the standard train.
Once you are at Payerbach-Reichenau train station, getting to the Hub is pretty simple:
- By Bus: you can buy a bus ticket from the station at this link. The Bus line is 341, and it should take fifteen minutes at most.
- By Taxi: if you are planning to arrive later than the last bus, or don’t want to take it, you can call a taxi. The price should be around €15. You can simply ask to be taken “to the church in Hirschwang”, since it’s very close to the Hub and a good reference point.
- Flackl-Wirt Taxi: +43 26665 2291
- Funk-Taxi Fritz Scharfegger: +43 2665 2200
- Walking: of course, nothing is stopping you from having a healthy walk up to the Hub! It’s only around 5km, an hour of walking more or less, and most of the route goes through nature.
If you think you are going to be too late for any service, make sure to contact us so we’ll be able to organize a car to come and get you!
Nearby external accomodation
You might want to book an external accommodation to which you can withdraw when our collective energy overwhelms you a bit, or if there are no more places to sleep in the Hub itself:
Offers affordable rooms and is about 10 minutes by foot.
About 4km from the Hub, so you'll need someone with a car, but the place might still be worth it - Princess Sisi used to stay there!
Within 5 minutes by foot, a little pricy but quite fancy.
Else, there are plenty more options on AirBnB and Booking.com, just be careful when booking - local public transport is scarce.
