Heidelberg bus 32 info


The info page[1] mentions bus 32 but there is no link or timetable info

I went looking for details and found the following:

- Google Maps doesn't seem to know about this bus when giving
directions, it knows the place as "DJH Jugendherberge Heidelberg
International" but it doesn't show the stop on the map

- Openstreetmap says it is not found

- Google finds the bus route is known to Openstreetmap though[2]

- one of the top results in a Google search for "Heidelberg bus 32" is
vrn.de[3] but it doesn't seem to know the bus stop, type Jugendheberge
and it goes to "Mardorf (Nidersachs), Jugendherberge" or "Uberlingen
(Bodens), Jugenherberge"

- there is another site, bus-bahn-fahrplan.de that appears to show a lot
more detail, exact bus times[4] - is this info official and is it correct?

This final link appears to suggest 6 buses/hour weekdays, 3 buses/hour
weekends and 2 buses/hour from 9pm.  Maybe somebody could add that on
the info page if it is correct?

Re: VISA type required to attend DebConf

I had the same question. I was told we could apply for a Tourist Visa.
Perhaps, Rene or Michael could confirm this.

Liberating hardware at DebCamp/Conf

Hi,

I'd love to try Libreboot/Coreboot but I don't own the equipment to
re-flash my own BIOS chip (on a ThinkPad X200).  So I wondered, might
someone be able to bring with them a Beaglebone Black and Pomona 5250/
5252 clamps, to DebCamp/Conf?

I thought it could make for a nice workshop activity.  Some people at
the conference will have expert knowledge of this and be able to help
others through the process.  I guess there are risks though:

  * if something goes badly wrong, someone's device may be bricked,
   leaving them scr^Wrather unproductive for the rest of DebConf
   (maybe it should be on the final day?);

  * if the BBB is tampered with, it could flash malware to everyone's
   devices (but I think we can mitigate that by bringing our own
   micro-SD cards, download and verify the ROM ourselves, or even
   use a second BBB to independently verify what was flashed?).

I'd also be interested in reflashing of routers, unlocking phones'
bootloaders and such if anyone has ideas.

Please let me know what you think.  Or if it seems too risky I'll
consider some other time/venue for this.

Thanks,
Regards,

Hi Wookey and all for the hints. I've just booked from Montreal to

Parking at the hostel

Hi,

The debconf page says, in the other accommodation section:

    An alternative would be for people with cars to pool. Ample parking
    spaces exist at the youth hostel.

However, the hostel page says:

    Unsere Herberge verfügt über einen kleinen Gästeparkplatz. Da rund um
    die Jugendherberge die Parkplatzsituation sehr eingeschränkt ist,
    empfehlen wir die Anreise mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln.

What's the actual situation?

thanks,
iustin

Train from Luxembourg to Heidelberg

Hi all,

It seems Luxembourg is a reasonable option for flights coming from North
America (at least less expensive than going to Frankfurt). Has anyone an
idea about the train from there to Heidelberg?

Thanks!

CCCamp to DebConf15 transport by bus

Folks,

If you're going to CCCamp and don't have transport organised yet,
there might be the possibility of a bus hire. This is not a promise
nor do we have a price, but in order to pursue this, we need to know
who's in. Public transport from the camp to Heidelberg seems to be
a pain anyhow.

Please add yourself to the list if you are interested and *prepared
to pay for this opportunity*. Of course it'll only make sense if the
price is sensible, so you can bank on that.

Travelling to/from DC15 by train — saver tickets

Hello prospective DebConfers,

The German railway company offers so-called "saver tickets" to
people who know exactly which train they will take and book their
tickets well in advance, starting as low as 19 € and rising to
29€/49€/69€ while supplies last. These tickets can be bought
3 months in advance via http://bahn.de and DC15 is 3 months away,
hence here's a little reminder.

Availability is usually very low, so act quick if you need this
(though if you're just travelling from Frankfurt Airport, read on
below).

  Please refer to
  https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf15/Welcome#How_to_get_to_Heidelberg_International
  for updates and new information as DebConf15 draws nearer.

For people travelling longer distances within Germany, we're also
offering special "event tickets" with a discount, see below. If you
own a BahnCard, you're likely going to fare better using that. There
are also often special offers for time-limited BahnCards, which may
be of interest to you. Generally, the website will give you the
offer while booking.

Please be aware that all saver tickets are only valid on the chosen
train(s) and a 17 € charge is incurred for changes, in addition to
possible fare upgrades. The saver tickets are also not transferable.

It is not cheaper to buy a return trip than it is to buy two
individual tickets, so you can easily opt for one saver ticket and
chose to remain flexible.

** Local transport tickets

When buying a ticket online, you'll have the option to add "City
mobil" which will allow you to travel from the main station to the
youth hostel. We strongly recommend everyone doing so to facilitate
your time at the main station and to avoid delays. The price is the
same.

Please remember that people travelling to DebConf with
a BahnCard-ticket will likely have the "+City" option included and
don't need this extra option.

** Frankfurt Airport

As most of you will be travelling via Frankfurt Airport, you
probably need not worry. A full-price, single-trip from the airport
to Heidelberg is 25 €, and the few saver tickets at 19 € will likely
be sold out quickly. Plus, flexibility is a bonus as one never knows
how long luggage takes etc.

** Event tickets

Thanks to a collaboration with FrOSCon and the CCC, we are able to
offer DebConf15 event tickets. These tickets are sinlge-price and
include the return trip no matter what distance within Germany you
are travelling and hence of special interest to those from Hamburg,
Berlin, Munich, even Düsseldorf, if you are not holder of a BahnCard
and you didn't get a saver ticket.

There's a saver option (specific train) available for 99 € in 2nd
class (159 € in 1st). If you need a full-flexible ticket, that'll be
139 € in 2nd class (199 € in 1st).

Unfortunately, the event tickets can only be purchased on the phone
by dialing +49 1806 311153¹ and quoting the code "CCC", payable by
credit card.²

  ¹) Mon–Sat, 07:00–22:00 (CEST); 20¢ from a German land-line, 60¢
     from a cell phone. International charges vary.
  ²) A small surcharge (~ 1€) will be asked for payments with credit
     card.
