Parking and shuttle bus to the reunion field

Private cars can be parked at the car park "Stossplatz" in Altstätten. The reserved parking spots are marked by the city. The special train of the "Stossbahn" will take you to the reunion site (leaving 10:52 AM). Alternatively, an hurly shuttle bus is available which commutes from the parking lot to the reunion field and back. Parking at the "Alte Stossstrasse" near the reunion field in the woods is not permitted! (we only got the permission with the condition that we do not park any cars there). For emergencies, cars of the committee members are available.

This map shows the location of the "Stossplatz" with the parking.

So that as many relatives from abroad as possible can participate at the family celebration, we are hoping for a large number of host families in Switzerland to provide accommodation before and after the celebration. Please indicate in the corresponding section of the registration form if you can be a host family. Thank you very much in advance.

If you come from abroad and wish to stay for a few days before and/or after the celebration with a host family, please indicate in the corresponding section of the registration form, how many nights you need accommodation for.
