For First-Timers

There will be plenty of time to test the equipment (for example the official timing device, the Stackmat timer) and discuss the rules if you have questions. Do not hesitate to ask any questions. However, every competitor should familiarise themselves with the official WCA regulations before attending the competition!


The venue is located in the Tübingen district of Pfrondorf. We do, however, recommend you stay in or around the city centre.

Likely your cheapest option will be the Tübingen youth hostel, which is only a 5-10 minute walk from the historic city centre (which you should check out!). A bus stop ("Neckarbrücke") which serves most important lines is located four minutes from the hostel. From Tübingen main station it can be reached on foot within ten minutes.

It may also be worth checking the usual hotel search engines or AirBnB.

Public Transport and Travel

If you are planning on flying in, you will want to fly to Stuttgart airport (STR), which is about an hour's bus journey (€6.80) from the heart of Tübingen. The airport bus (number 828) runs at least once every hour (at most times of the day it runs twice an hour).

The bus lines 1 and 7 run to Pfrondorf from both Tübingen main station ("Hauptbahnhof"/"Hbf") and the centre (such as the stops "Neckarbrücke", "Wilhelmstraße", "Uni/Neue Aula") twice every hour. The bus ride is around 20 minutes. You should get off at "Pfrondorf Volksbank", from where it is just a few steps to the venue.

An online journey planner for both the airport bus and the city bus can be found on this website.

If you are travelling by car, we recommend you look for parking in one of the neighbouring streets of the venue. As the area is relatively quiet, you should be able to find a spot without too much difficulty.
