Getting there

Address of the house: Austria, Metnitz A9363, Marktplatz 16.

By car
From Riga by car - 1600 km, you need 22 hours without a hurry. You can drive either through Slovakia or the Czech Republic. It’s obligatory to buy a vignette at the filling station! Price is around 6 EUR. In Austria a vignette for autobahns is also necessary - around 7 EUR for 10 days (please check the prices, as they can change). If you get tired on the way, you can stay overnight in Poland – for instance, at the FOX hotel 100 km from Warsaw in the direction of Austria.
We advise you to use a navigator (the older version of TomTom doesn’t recognize the house number 16, but you can enter number 1 - it is the opposite house).
