to go to the venue of the summer school, take this tramway in
direction "Eggenberg/UKH" and exit at
"Kaiser-Josef-Platz/Oper". Then follow
"Mandellstraße", until it changes its name to
"Petersgasse". The campus is then on the right. The walk takes
approximately 10 minutes.

For Wednesday afternoon we plan an excursion to nearby Mount
Schöckl. We will go by bus to a trail-head, hike up to the
summit (approximately 2 hours), after a rest on the summit we return
on a shorter path (45 minutes) and take the bus back to Graz
(around 8 pm). From the summit one has a nice view over the
surrounding area. There are several restaurants, as well as a
"summer toboggan run". The hiking tour follows a broad and
simple path, nevertheless sports shoes or hiking boots are recommended
for this tour. The costs for this excursion are 10€.
