How to get here

Note that Augsburg local public transport information doesn't appear to be readily available. You might have to check directly on their website: https://www.sw-augsburg.de/mobilitaet/swa-bus-tram/

By plane

Nearest airports are Munich (MUC), Memmingen (FMM) and Nuremberg (NUE).

Getting from Munich to Augsburg takes around 1.5 hours by train in total: From Munich Airport take the S-Bahn to München-Pasing or München Hauptbahnhof (main station). From there you have various trains (both regional (RB/RE) and faster (ICE), though the difference seems miniscule) available to Augsburg.

Memmingen is a lot smaller smaller but has quite good connections all over Europe. It's worth checking as ticket fares might be cheaper. Getting from Memmingen to Augsburg takes around 2 hours by train in total.

Nuremberg Airport to Augsburg is 1:30 by train (metro (U) + RE/ICE)

Once in Augsburg, proceed as by local public transport below:

From Augsburg Main Station "Hauptbahnhof"
  • 15 minutes ride with tramway no. 3 towards Haunstetten P+R West, exit at Bukowina-Institut / PCI and you're right in front of our building.
From Augsburg Station "Messe" (DB)
  • Take a 15 minute walk right upfront to the office building
  • or hop on bus no. 41 towards Königsplatz, exit at Bukowina-Institut / PCI. It's the next stop right away.

On Saturday, 2020-04-25 the 19th Augsburger Linux-Infotag takes place at Hochschule Augsburg. Both TUXEDO and KDE will have a booth there.

Admission is free and it would be a nice opportunity for anyone attending the sprint to get in touch with some of our users and FOSS projects, so I highly recommend you go there! Of course people helping at the booth would be appreciated.
