Getting there: Our studio is located in Wallstraße 1, 86150 Augsburg - directly at Königsplatz. At the entrance you see Nails&More and a Turkish bank. You'll find the studio at the first floor.
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“.
Food & Drinks: We will be serving free tap water throughout the event. We kindly ask you to not bring any food or drinks into the studio or to refill bottles at the toilets. We believe we have fair prices for food and drinks and we can only continue bringing exceptional teachers to Augsburg if you support us with your understanding!
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. Please understand that decisions of our staff regarding levels and auditions are final. Thank you :)
Parties: The parties are not included in the workshop-Tickets. The parties are fully booked, there will be no tickets at the door.
Be careful with the parking, some parking garages close at 1am. The Parking garage at Schaezlerstraße should be open all night long. Please double check! ;)
