On organizing transport
More information concerning transport will be provided soon. For those organizing flights you can best travel to the airport in Stuttgart (Flughafen Stuttgart) or the airport in Frankfurt (Flughafen Frankfurt am Main). The airport in Memmingen is also another option. The closest train station to the conference is in the town of Göppingen, which is about 1-hour from Stuttgart airport and 2-hours from Frankfurt and Memmingen airports. We will organize shuttle buses from the train station in Göppingen to the Evangelische Akademie in Bad Boll on both the first day of the conference (Wednesday) and the last day of the conference (Friday). If you arrive at a different time, there is a bus connection between Göppingen and Bad Boll.
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to Bad Boll in November!
