When will the busses leave from Kaufbeuren station on Friday?
One bus at 13:30 and one bus at 14:30.
How do I get to Kloster Irsee, if I don't arrive at those times?
Take a taxi from the station. It is about 5km and costs about 25 DM.
How do I get from the airport to Kaufbeuren?
If you are short of time proceed directly to the "S-Bahn" terminal in the airport - follow the signs with the white "S" on green background. You can buy a blue "Streifenkarte" (15 DM) either at a blue machine before you go down (10 DM or 20 DM notes or coins) or at a counter nearby. You have to cancel 8 stripes on a little blue box (marked "E") for the trip to Pasing. In Pasing you have to change the platform for the train to Kaufbeuren and you can buy the train ticket on the train (about 21 DM). Alternatively (and slightly cheaper) you can get a train ticket for the whole way (33 DM single, 66 DM return) from a "Deutsche Bahn" (DB) counter in the "Zentralbereich" (Z) of the airport. Even better, if at least 6 people are travelling together you can get a group ticket (at least 40% reduction).

How do I find out about other train connections from or to Kaufbeuren (i.e. at different times or to different places) ?
Use the forms accessible from our page and change the times, destination or origin and the press "Find connection".
Will there be COQ/LEGO/... preinstalled on the demo machine?
I am sorry, but we cannot provide this service. The demo machine will be a SUN (SPARC) with standard software (like xemacs) preinstalled. All other software has to be uploaded by ftp and installed at Kloster Irsee.
