The hotel is close to the main station Darmstadt which is just one station by train to Pfungstadt. After a 10 minutes walk you will be at our gym (overall travel time from MOXY to our gym is about 30 minutes). Otherwise it is an easy ride if you go by car or cab.
Please understand that due to the high number of participants, access to our gym during qualification (Saturday), is reserved for athletes.
Of course we have set up seats for the semi-finals and finals on Sunday. There is no entry fee for visitors but we are looking forward to a voluntary entrance to our donation fund!
There will be 80 boulder problems all over our 3.000 m² sized gym set in 4 difficulties (20 each). So anyone can compete, score points and have a great bouldering session. The ranking will be done by anybody himself, so you please keep the faith of fair play.
Qualification will take part in two groups to provide you a more comfortable and safer climb.
