The Site

The convention will be at Ungdomens Hus. Undomens hus has a website but only in Swedish as far as we know. Maybe you can get an idea about the place even if you do not understand Swedish. The address is Huskvarnavägen 38, Jönköping. Most people in town knows where this is. We have taken some pictures of the site. They are here.

You can click at this link to get a map to the site. The site is located at the litte circle in this map. Or here you can get a look through Google at the satellite view.

There will be a small café open at the site during Wednesday-Friday with food and drinks.

Sleeping will occur, for some at some time. It will done at a school close to the convention centre. You'll have to bring your own sleeping-bag and mattress. (And toothbrush, soap, favorite teddy bear... You get the picture.)

There will an absolute ban on drugs of all sorts: So no alcohol at the convention site or sleeping-halls. Smoking will be permitted outdoors only. This is not negotiable.

There's a small food-store close to the convention site, and a pizzeria. On walking distance there's a big lake. Eh -- and other restaurants of the fast food-variety. If you take a omnibus, you'll find several shops and restaurants after a short ride. See below for directions to the site.

Getting there by bus

Once in Jönköping you can get to the site by taking a bus from the central station. More information about timetables etc (in Swedish) are available at the website of Jönköpings lokaltrafik. They have a traffic map.

From the central station you take bus number 1 towards Huskvarna and get off at Rosenlund. You can ask the drievr to stop at "Ungdomens hus". Ungdomens hus is about 50 meters from the Rosenlund bus stop. Taking the bus costs about SEK 15 and the last one leaves at around 00:25 at night.

Getting to the site by car

If you come from Stockholm or Malmö, you'll get of the interstate E4 at Ekhagen, follow signs to Elmia Convention Fair (Elmia mässor och kongress) --- but not all the way!

It's a bit tricky, but follow these directions closely and you'll get there: When you get off the interstate and you drive over some railway-tracks and the road goes parallell with the tracks, you have to take the next turn left. (It's by the firestation). At the next large intersection - take left again. And finally at the next intersection take the left again - you'll see Ungdomens hus by then.
