2019:Travel Coordination

From Wikimania

This page aims to make coordination of travel to and during Wikimania 2019 in Stockholm easier. Do you want to get to Stockholm by other means than flying? Do you want to make common tours of the country and region before or after Wikimania? Coordinating and travelling with others help reduce the economic and environmental costs – and makes travelling much more fun! Please list different initiatives below, stating the dates and places of departure and arrival both ways, who will be in charge of the coordination and any cost estimates.

See also the page for sustainable travelling for further information on travelling sustainably.

Travelling to and from Stockholm[edit | edit source]

WikiBus[edit | edit source]

I am organising a WikiBus to Stockholm (from Hamburg/Berlin or maybe from Amsterdam, maybe with a stop or two to pick up any Danish Wikimaniacs). Please consider the carsharing option below! --Gnom (talk) 18:43, 4 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Car-Sharing[edit | edit source]

If you are coming to Wikimania by car and have free seats to offer along the way, please write down when and where you start so other Wikimedians can join your ride. There's also an app that you could use: Skjutsgruppen. We have set a group there for people coming to Wikimania.

Car from / to Hamburg via Copenhagen[edit | edit source]

If the bus option (see above) fails, we would drive with my Viano from Hamburg to Stockholm on Wednesday 14th and back to Hamburg on Monday 19th via Lübeck and Copenhagen. We will fill the cooler as required.

Meeting point: Mc Donalds Kystvejen 1, 2770 Kastrup, Danmark. Thats in walking distance from the airport bus terminal and near the last exit in Denmark on the motorway to Sweden. --Bahnmoeller (talk) 12:29, 24 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Bahnmoeller: Okay. I'll be there at 13:30. I'm very tall and will have a large mustard coloured wheelbag with me, so I should be easy to spot. Bahnfrend (talk) 04:41, 12 August 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Bahnmoeller: I'm trying to arrange last minute travel to Stockholm and find your option to be very interesting. What time do I need to be in Hamburg to meet up with you, would it be possible to pick me up at the Hauptbahnhoff? And what time would you be back in Hamburg on Monday?

I am interested in travelling Copenhagen to Stockholm by bus, Viano or train on Wed 14. I'll be flying into CPH from Australia on Mon 12. I own an MB G-Wagen and have experience driving on Autobahns (and also across the Nullarbor Plain). So I could do some of the driving of the Viano (I can also navigate).

I want to go earlier than 14th, I could join for return on 19th. or also am happy to take train both ways. --Jeremyb (talk) 04:13, 1 August 2019 (UTC)[reply]
I'm taking the train on the 13th, but I am another possible to take the return car trip on the 19th if there is room.--Pharos (talk) 20:10, 1 August 2019 (UTC)[reply]

I have noted your interest as per above list - we can talk in Stockholm --Bahnmoeller (talk) 18:22, 4 August 2019 (UTC)[reply]
