Location & Hotel
The XmaSwing Festival is hosted by Hep Cat Club, our studio is located at Viktoriastraße 3B, 86150 Augsburg, Germany. Workshops and parties will take place here. Only the Thursday Warm Up party will not take place at the studio.
The entrance is directly at track 1 of the Augsburg central train station. Here is how to find the entrance: Imagine you step out of a train on track 1, then you go to the left to the next building (Helio Center). The door at the corner ist the entrance, it’s just 3 meters away from the roof of the train station building at track 1. You also see our Hep Cat Club logo there, we are located on the first floor.
You can find a plan on www.hepcatclub.com
Have you heard about the City Zone Augsburg? Within the city center you can use all busses and trains for FREE! Amazing, huh?

Some nice places to visit in Augsburg:
There are many nice places in Augsburg, but often they are a bit hidden, especially when you start at the main train station. Don’t miss to walk through the „Lechviertel - untere Altstadt“. Maybe it’s also interesting to visit the „Fuggerei“.
Please check the opening hours, some of them are closed on Sundays or close early!
Please check their Covid policies prior to your visit.
The closest airport is Franz-Josef-Strauß Airport in Munich (MUC). From there take the public transportation to Munich central station and a train to „Augsburg Hauptbahnhof“. From the airport in Stuttgart (STR) there is a very cheap flixbus connection to Augsburg. Interesting flight options can be found from Memmingen Airport (FMM) by choosing Ryanair or Wizzair for example.
All of these airports above are between 60 - 90 minutes away from Augsburg by car and they have reasonable connections - between 90 to 120 minutes travelling time - by train or bus as well
There are many hotels nearby, for example the Ibis Hotel at Hauptbahnhof. Next to the Ibis, you’ll find the InterCity Hotel. Both are located in walking distance from the event location (3-5 minutes). Our students told us that they loved the Hotel Viktoria right across the street from our dance studio.
Our students also loved and recommended the HostelHotelHome nearby. It’s a very nice and much cheaper option. Especially the breakfast should be amazing there! Located in the city center, around 5-10 minutes walking distance.
We can also recommend to stay at the Grandhotel Cosmopolis. It’s a very special place in Augsburg. Hostel, hotel and home for refugees at the same time and every room is designed by an artist. They also have the concept „Pay as much as you can“.
Food & Drinks
We will have a self-service bar for coffee, snacks, water and fruits. Since the studio is conveniently located at Augsburg main train station and very close to downtown, it is only a short walk to go for lunch or dinner after classes or grab something to eat on the way to the hotel.
