(For more details see the convention site’s map.)
How to get there?
Feldkirch is located at one of Austria’s main railway lines. So, it’s easy to get there by train, e.g. from Innsbruck, Salzburg (city), Linz, Vienna, or, Klagenfurt.
The train ride e.g. from Innsbruck, Salzburg or Vienna will take about respectively 2, 3 3/4 or 6 1/4 hours.

How to find the festival place?
