St. Florian is located in Upper Austria, about 10 km south-southeast of Linz. The festival takes place in and around a school building. At the jugglers’ disposal will be a gym, areas for unicycling and acrobatics, class rooms (to stay overnight), a camping area, a large juggling meadow, and more. (See the festival homepage for detailed information about the site.)
How to get there?
By train and bus:
Take the Westbahnstrecke (one of Austria’s main railway lines which connects e.g. Salzburg and Vienna) to Hauptbahnhof (= central train station) Linz. From bus terminal B8 (close to the train station) take bus 410 and get off at Gendarmerieplatz St.Florian. From there it’s an five minute walk to the festival site. Signs will direct you.

Since there are only a few buses on holidays and Sundays car-pooling is recommended to get from Linz to St. Florian and back to Linz.
Take the autoroute A1 (Salzburg–Vienna) in direction Linz. Leave it at junction 160 Asten/St. Florian. Turn right at Ipfstraße and follow it. Keep right at service station Eni and follow Wiener Straße. From there signs will direct you to the festival site. There is enough space for parking.
In the school building:
Two dancing rooms will be adopted as sleeping halls. There are also a few family rooms. (If you have an urgent need for an indoor sleeping place, please, come early!) Bring your own sleeping bag and mat. Lavatories and rest rooms are to be found in the school building.
There will be camping areas on site. Please, bring your own tent. There is enough parking ground to stay overnight in caravans etc.
