Accomodation

 quick update / info from the devel-list

Thank you big time for giving us accomodation and support us with your flat as TikiHouse, Rémy.

From tonight (8th) Jonny and Torsten will open the TikiCamp at Camping Montagne Verte in the west of Strasbourg, very close to the city centre.

TikiCamp 1.0


As advertised, Jonny and Torsten set up TikiCamp 1.0 on Friday the 8th, and then on Sunday instigated version 1.1 when we upgraded to over the road under a nice big tree to get some shade. Currently v1.1 has issues with some bees (rather than bugs) but we hope we can avoid having to release v1.2 by trying hard not to annoy them.

Let's take advantage of the work done by the people from Libre Software Meeting (LSM).
Their page concerning accomodation. Online booking is now available for rooms, t-shirts, The Free Software Banquet
There is a nice camping site with free ))WiFi(( quite near the city center.
Camping de la Montage Verte see also LSM page concerning Camping de la Montage Verte.

Jean-Marc's findings
I asked around. Some colleagues have lists of hotels but they mostly seem rather expensive, and I doubt it will be easy to found a room there for the 6th of july. I join the file just for for reference.

There is also the European Youth Centre Strasbourg (EYCS) (no age requirements) which is near Council of Europe and Tram. I'm told it usually has rooms even during parliamentary sessions.
http://www.coe.int/t/dg4/youth/eyc/strasbourg_EN.asp?
Prices seem high for single rooms (45€) but they have rooms for 2-3 people (30.50€) : http://www.coe.int/t/dg4/youth/eyc/Holding_activity_2011_en.asp#TopOfPage
It's necessary to take the tram to reach pubs but I know there is a big nice lobby suitable for rest and discussions.

In terms of what could resemble a TikiHouse, there is a hotel that has suites which can accept up to 4 people here: http://www.victoriagarden.com/-Strasbourg-1-2-.html
The Family Suites can host 4 people but again, the 6th of july seems already unavailable for booking online (maybe direct contact could work if they don't put 100% of them available online).

That's the summary of my findings... I'm not sure these findings look better than Torsten's Camping-besides-the-youth-Hostel plan :-)

There seems to be a way of renting bikes for 5€/day

Travel

How to come to Strasbourg

by train
The train station is right next to city centre, and everywhere can be reached from there using the tram. Trams drive until 24:30 at night.

by car
Some info: in Strasbourg, having a car is a hindrance, not an advantage. It is difficult to drive around and park. If you come by car, you are likely to leave it parked until you leave again.

by ship
Unlikely.


by plane
The nearest airport is the Strasbourg-Entzheim so-called "International" airport. It is dwarfed by nearby bigger airports : Frankfurt, Basel, Baden-Baden. Lufthansa operates a Frankfurt-Strasbourg shuttle.

Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre (2011.rmll.info) happen right afterwards.
Some practical information for RMLL is also useful for TikiFest (english translation still partial)
