EISLINGEN TRAVEL GUIDE

This page is a guide only. The page contains recommendations from either TMs, Referees or Parents from previous seasons.  Venues or official hotels may change for the current season so we recommend that you check the reglement’s before confirming any travel arrangements and if you are booking hotels before the reglement is out we advise you may want to consider booking with free cancellation as it is not guaranteed that competition details will stay the same.

Nearby Supermarket (opposite Hotel Eichenhof)
Rewe

Hotels (Cadets)
Eislinghen Tor
Hotel Eichenhof (recommended)

Hotel Eichenhof
We recommend Hotel Eichenhof because it is a block and a half from the venue, has a supermarket across the street, and has a buffet dinner on Friday and Saturday night (you have to pre-book) during the competition which has worked well for the fencers

Flights 
Flights to Stuttgart depart from various UK airports these are limited and there is only one non-stop flight which goes from London Heathrow which is also the cheapest

‘Flights for Eislingen are always expensive because the competition occurs during Christmas Market time in Germany.  It is always best to book flights and hotels for this competition as early as possible.’

Transfers
There are official transfers arranged through the organisers. The transfers go to and from Stuttgart and to and from the venue.

‘We have always used the organiser provided transfers, and they work well!’

Dinner
Hotel Eichenhof has a buffet dinner on Friday and Saturday night (you have to pre-book)

Important Information to note
It is helpful to the organisers to have your money for entry, transfers, etc. ready and in an envelope with your name on it – it makes finding your fencer easier on their list, and there will be less change of a mistake.  All of the organisers will give you a receipt when you pay entry fees, transfer fees, etc.  Remember – everyone working during check-in is a parent volunteer just like your self.  Please be patient!
