More Info

Registration starts August 28th, 3pm!

Location:
The location for all Workshops and Parties is the new Hep Cat Club, Viktoriastraße 3B, 86150 Augsburg. We finally moved in a few weeks ago! :)
The entrance is directly at railway 1 of Augsburg Main Train Station. Imagine you step out of a train on railway 1. Then you go to the left to the next building (Helio Center). The door at the corner ist the entrance, it’s just 3 meters away from railway 1. You see the logo of „Regus“ there, our logo is still missing. You can find a plan on www.hepcatclub.com

Airport: The closest airport is Franz-Josef-Strauß Airport in Munich (MUC). From there take the public transportation to Munich central station and a train to „Augsburg Hauptbahnhof“. From the airport in Stuttgart (STR) there is a very cheap flixbus connection to Augsburg. Interesting flight options can be found from Memmingen Airport (FMM) by choosing Ryanair or Wizzair for example.

All of these airports above are between 60 - 90 minutes away from Augsburg by car and they have reasonable connections - between 90 to 120 minutes travelling time - by train or bus as well 

Hotels: There are many hotels nearby, for example the Ibis hotels at Königsplatz or Hauptbahnhof. Both of them are in walking distance from the event location (3-5 minutes). We also heard from many students that the youth hostel in Augsburg is quite nice and a cheaper option - Expecially the breakfast should be nice there!

We can also recommend to stay at the Grandhotel Cosmopolis. It’s a very special place in Augsburg. Hostel, hotel and home for refugees at the same time and every room is designed by an artist. They also have the concept „Pay as much as you can“. 

Workshops: Please understand that we allow only workshop attendants to enter the studio. This includes the bar area as well. If you did not book the currently running workshop please do not enter. Thank you :)


Food & Drinks: We will have a self-service bar for coffee, snacks, water and fruits.
Be aware that the schedule is a bit tight this time, therefore maybe the breaks between the workshops are not long enough to visit a restaurant (depends on your combination of workshops). Better bring some snacks by your own then.

Parties: The parties are not included in the workshop-Tickets. You have to book them, too!

Christmas market: The christmas markets are open from 10.00 - 21.30 and on Sunday from 10.00 - 20.00
You find more information about the markets and opening times here.

At least here are some nice places to visit in Augsburg:
Please check the opening hours, some of them are closed on Sundays or close early! 
There are many nice places in Augsburg, but often they are a bit hidden, especially when you start at the Main Train Station. Don’t miss to walk through the „Lechviertel - untere Altstadt“. Maybe it’s also interesting to visit the „Fuggerei“.
