Here’s some quick information concerning the meeting points.
If you plan on being a bigger group and you need a location to meet up. we’d ask you to not to gather in front of Johannagasse 36 because the past has shown that the neighbors tend to cause trouble by either calling the police or contacting the landlord per se.
Therefore please gather at the small park at Margaretenstraße.
Thank you for understanding!
