Wild clocks 2018

MONDAY, OCTOBER 15
ARRIVAL    
From the airport of the Munich main train station, please take the local train (‘S-Bahn’) S8 to the town of ‘Herrsching’, which is its final destination. It should depart roughly every 20 mins and takes ~1:20 h – if its destination is announced as ‘Wessling’ or any other place, you need to wait for the next one to ‘Herrsching’.
In Herrsching, please walk to your hotel (~ 3 min walk to the Seehof, ~10 min walk to the Piushof).
People staying at the guest house are recommended to take a taxi (outside of the station in Herrsching) to ‘Seewiesen’, about a 10-min ride (~ 20 Euro). There is also a local bus service (no. 951) leaving outside of the S-Bahn station Herrsching every hour at xx:15 (last departure at 21:15). This is a cheaper alternative (2-3 Euros) but requires a 5 min walk from the bus station outside of Seewiesen to the institute. You will get the keys to your room and further info at the reception (‘Pforte’, at the entry to the institute), which is always staffed. If no one is around at the reception (they are required to do their rounds at night), please wait for a bit and they will appear again.

DINNER (SELF-ORGANIZED)
Herrsching is a small town. Many small shops close at 18:00 and the larger supermarkets close by 20:00. Many restaurants stop serving dinners around 21:30. Please bring your own food if you’re arriving later than 21:30. For people staying at the guest house: you might want to buy food in or before arriving at Herrsching, or have dinner there, because there is no food available in or around Seewiesen. The guest house has a kitchen with fridge space, if you wanted to prepare your own dinner. There is a pizza service in Herrsching, which also delivers pasta dishes, salads and Indian/Asian food (‘Pizza Roma’, pizzaexpressroma-herrsching.de).
