There will be crash space for about 4-5 people. There is a small hotel, Hotel Garni, right around the block if people want to have more comfort than an air bed, couch, or floor.

Take your best way to The A70 Towards Schweinfurt. Exit at Schweinfurt-Oberndorf Exit #5 at the intersection at the end of the off ramp turn onto the B 26 in the direction to Schweinfurt. Enter Schweinfurt. At the second Traffic signal you will see The Hotel Garni/Cafe Goetz on the left corner. This is the intersection if the B 26 and Schulegasse, Take a Right onto Schulegasse. You will see a school on the right. After one block Turn Left on to Karl-Fichtel-Strasse.

The house is on the left in the middle of the block. Do not park in the parking on the street in front of the house. It is for residents only and you might get ticketed. There are other parking places just a little further down on the street and around the corner. Also we have some visitor spaces in our parkplatz behind our building.

The Train Station is about 1 km away. Pick up can be arranged.

Cats do live at this apartment, so keep that in mind if you are allergic

As always, food will be provided, and as always, the workshop is free. However, donations will be accepted to help cover the cost of food.

On Sunday, we might consider going to the Residence in Wuerzburg. They are open from 9-6 and have guided tours in English at 11 and 3. Entry is 5 Euros. It is out of our period, but it is quite spectacular. http://www.schloesser.bayern.de/englisch/palace/objects/wu_res.htm

There is also the Marienberg Fortress on the hill overlooking Wuerzburg. From what I can gather the current structures were began around 1200 and were added on to and improved in the late middleages and renaissance. It was badly burned in the 40s and reconstructed and finished in 1990. They are open from 9-6 and entrance is 4 Euros. They offer a couple of different tour options which are laid out on the website. http://www.schloesser.bayern.de/englisch/palace/objects/wu_fest.htm

While the event is free, it is very important to let Emma know you are coming, so food and crash space can be accurately planned. If you have any questions, please contact either Emma or myself offlist.

See you all there!
