The institute can be reached by Tram and Bus via the Stations Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz, Münzgasse and Härtelstr.

Food and Drink:
We will provide a central organized Lunch as well as coffee on site.

There are several hotels both in walking distance to the institute and the main station of Leipzig. With 5 nights stay, costs per night per person should not greatly exceed about 70 EUR per night.
It is recommended, although not strictly required, that participants share double rooms when possible. Best call the hotels for reservation as they usually have more rooms than are listed online!

It is recommended to book as soon as possible as hotel rooms are likely to get scarce and no contingent could be negotiated unfortunately.
As an alternative to a Hotel, you can book single and double rooms in this completely newly built hostel: http://www.hostel-leipzig.de/de/

Travel and Hotel costs will be reimbursed after the summer school by the project. Participants will need to fill out the attached form.
