How to travel to Darmstadt / the location:

Travel to Darmstadt: fastest connection from Airport Frankfurt is the Airliner-Busline, departing every 30 Minutes from both Airport Terminals to Darmstadt Mainstation. Traveltime 22-27 Minutes.
One-Way-Ticket costs €7,40 and includes onto travel in the Darmstadt area.

Travel to the location: From Darmstadt Mainstation there are various connections to THE central city station "Luisenplatz" in Darmstadt, wich is in walking distance to the ECQ-location. Easiest connection is via Tram. All trams have their last stop at Mainstation so there is no wrong direction. Lines number 2,3 and 5 (all exept No 1) leaving to Luisenplatz. Connection time 6-7 Min.
Coming by train a lokal connection can usually be included free of charge. Otherwise a one-way ticket costs €1,60.

[Special thanks for this guide go to Jan!]

I can't see it on work. Firewall-issues?

Zu Hause kann ich es auf meinem Rechner und meinem Laptop kann ich es mit Chrome und Firefox sehen. Bur der IE weigert sich und zeigt ein kleines rotes Kreuz. Im Handybrowser ist es ganz weg.

Right now, it is only 4 weeks until the start of the tournament.
To all, who dare: Please start announcing your presence ... :wink:

Preregistration GECQ (30.04.)
Preregistration Booster Draft (01.05.)


I would also like to propose a "side-event" to you:
Saturday, when the GECQ will be done and the winner(s) chosen (approximately at 20:30 o'clock), I would like to visit the lounge bar and restaurant "Cielo" (http://www.cielo-darmstadt.de) along with anybody, who wants to come along. It lies just a few foot-steps away from the tournament location.

Noch ein Hinweis für alle Autofahrer: Wenn Ihr auf Google die Stichwörter Parkplatz Hügelstraße Darmstadt eingebt, müsstet Ihr den Parkplatz "Landgraf-Philipps-Anlage" angezeigt bekommen. Dieser Parkplatz gleicht zwar einer Kraterlandschaft (vorsichtig fahren!), hat aber dafür den riesigen Vorteil, kostenlos zu sein und zugleich nur ca. 10 Minuten vom Spielort entfernt zu sein.
