St. Florian is located in Upper Austria, about 10 km south-southeast of Linz. The convention takes place in and around a school building. At the jugglers’ disposal will be a gym, class rooms (to stay overnight), a camping area, a large juggling meadow, and more. (See the convention’s 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 convention site. Signs will direct you.

For train and bus timetables, please, check:

By car:

Take the autoroute A1 (SalzburgVienna) 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.


In the school building:

Classrooms will be adopted as sleeping halls. Bring your own sleeping bag and mat. For your convenience you can choose a late risers’ or an early risers’ room. Furthermore there will be rooms for families. Lavatories and rest rooms are to be found in the school building.
IMPORTANT: As there are pretty many preregistrated people already, the organizing team is not sure if there will be place enough for everybody in the classrooms. So, please, bring a tent with you if possible. (At least as a precaution.)


There will be a camping area on site. Please, bring your own tent.

Private accomodation:

For more information, please, check: and organise the booking yourself.


An evening meal on Thursday and breakfast on the other days will be provided at the school’s canteen. They are included in the convention fee.
