Venue

  • The venue is close to the Luxembourg main train station (Gare centrale de Luxembourg) (walking distance ca. 450m) with many food places and shops nearby.

Car parking

  • If you come by car, there are a few paid car parks nearby, the closest being "Fort Wedell". You can find the location and prices of the different car parks here . Look for "Parkings dans le quartier de la Gare".
  • We suggest however, that you park at the Parking Bouillon which is free for 24 hours and take public transport or walk (ca. 20 minutes) to the venue. Alternatively, there is Parking Glacis (free on weekends) which is further away from the venue.

Public transport

  • For information and schedules of public transport in Luxembourg visit www.mobiliteit.lu. Bus stops near the venue are "Luxembourg Gare centrale", "Luxembourg/Centre, Paris/Zitha" (Place de Paris) and "Centre, Etats-Unis".

We've reached our competitor limit of 70!

There is however a waiting list! Once someone cancels, we will contact the first person on the list.
If you are on the waiting list: please only pay the registration fee once there is an open spot available and we contacted you! You will then get a few days to pay the free before we move on to the next person on the list.

Date of registration has priority over date of payment.

Thank you!
