Arrival by train

Switzerland and St.Gallen are very well connected by public transport. We therefore recommend arriving in St.Gallen by train. The train station in St.Gallen is located in the middle of the city, right next to the accreditation center.


Arrival by air

Arrival airport is Zurich. From there the journey continues by train to St.Gallen. Upon leaving the arrival zone, you will be greeted by our volunteers and escorted to the train to St.Gallen. The train ride takes about an hour.

Arrival in Switzerland by car/bus

Drive to Lagerstrasse 10, 9000 St. Gallen where you can park. The parking lot is right next to the Fachhochschule OST. Here is the office for accreditation - you will get more information there. Please call the information hotline when you arrive (+41 77 436 45 02). Your team attaché will pick you up. The Accreditation Office is located on the 2nd floor of the University of Applied Science OST, just off the parking lot.



Host City is St.Gallen. Around 300 beds are reserved here in four accommodations. The hotels correspond to a good Swiss standard. The distances in Switzerland and St.Gallen are short - by public transport you can reach the center of St.Gallen or the competition venues in a few minutes.


The delegations will be accommodated in a hotel. Each delegation has a team supervisor who will support them in all matters.




Of course, catering is guaranteed. The breakfast will be served in the hotel. Lunch and dinner will take place at different locations. In the hotel, at the university or depending on the schedule in the finish area of the competitions. Vegetarian food will be available.




At this stage, it is not possible to say whether there will be Covid restrictions. We will address this in subsequent bulletins.




The organisers decline any liability that might occur through participation in 2023 EUSA Orienteering Championship, training and the associated stay in Switzerland. Each person participates at her/his own risk and is responsible for her/his own insurance coverage (illness and accident).
