Participants are expected to arrive on Monday, August 21, late afternoon or evening, and to leave on Sunday, August 27, in the morning.
On Monday August 21, sandwiches will be ready for those that miss the dinner at 19.00 h. If you arrive later than 23.00 h, please inform the hotel.
If you are traveling by airplane, staying overnight Saturday 26/Sunday 27 should give an opportunity for cheaper flights. There will be much holiday traffic in August, so we recommend that you book your flight as early as possible.
