Practical Information

How to get there

We recommend travelling by plane to Prague or Leipzig airport. If you arrive the evening before the event or on the first day of the conference, we offer a shuttle service to your hotel or to the conference venue. Otherwise you can take the train or a car to Annaberg-Buchholz (see below).

Take the train from Leipzig, Dresden or Hof to Chemnitz central station. At the main station you have to change the train - take the Erzgebirgsbahn direction Annaberg-Buchholz/Cranzahl and leave the train at the station Unterer Bahnhof in Annaberg-Buchholz (usually platform 8). The conference venues are within walking distance - the conference centre (Protestant grammar school) is about 1.2 km (18 min), the festival theatre about 1.6 km (25 min).


Use the following addresses for your navigation system:

Evangelical school community Erzgebirge:
Street of Friendship 11, 09456 Annaberg-Buchholz
50°35'8.6136" N, 13°0'27.1548" E

Ernst-Roch-Strasse 4, 09456 Annaberg-Buchholz
50°34'36.4944" N, 13°0'46.9152" E

Coming from Dresden Airport, take the A4 highway in the direction of Chemnitz/Erfurt. At the Chemnitz highway junction, take the A72 towards Zwickau/Hof. Take the Stollberg-West exit.

From Leipzig Airport, take the A14 highway in the direction of Dresden. At the highway junction Parthenaue take the A38 towards Göttingen/Leipzig-Southeast. At the Chemnitz/Borna exit, take the B2/B95/A72 towards Chemnitz and take the Stollberg-West exit.

Coming from Hof, take the A72 towards Leipzig until the Stollberg-West exit.

In addition to the shuttle service from Prague, Leipzig and Dresden airports, we will also offer a shuttle service from the event venues to the hotels.
