Re: The Dubliners in concert

I hope they are still up to it. It looks like a punishing tour and they are not getting any younger. But I have fond memories of them and hope to make it to Bern on the 1. Feb.

Re: The Dubliners in concert

Bern is looking more probable for me as well. Need to check tickets and train times. If the OH makes it that is. If he doesnt i will go by myself!

Re: The Dubliners in concert

Hi Gata

Yes the venue is in the hotel. The Hotel is called Spirgarten and more information about the hotel can be found here http://www.spirgarten.ch/

As you will be travelling with a friend you should be looking for a Doppelzimmer (room with two separate beds). The price should be 199.- (per room not per person and including breakfast) as it's a weekend.

Let me know if you need further help also with directions etc.

Re: The Dubliners in concert

Thanks you are great! I will book the tickets today since it will probably be sold out soon and meet with some EFrs for drinks before or after since we most likely wont be sitting together

Re: The Dubliners in concert

Thank you for letting me know. I just realised that I can't see who submitted a reply this was my first "event" and I think I made a mistake.

So if anyone reads this and wants to join me: I will buy the tickets tonight. Please PM me so that we can sit next to each other.

Thanks

PS: Gata could you PM me with the row that you bought - I might try to buy tickets close to you

Or don't persuade her. Such concerts are good places to dig chicks.

Re: The Dubliners in concert

So i guess there will be loads of us but we wont be sitting close to each other.

Ok a request for Zurich residents. How far is the concert place from the Viaduct and which bus/tram/walk you lazy a** can we use to get there?

Re: The Dubliners in concert

It's quite a way gata, too far to walk, Tram 2 goes there and you can walk from the Viadukt to Badenerstrasse over the Hardbrücke to catch it.... about 20 minutes I seem to remember. If I do get tickets (will know later in the week) we can arrange a group drinks and journey

It's a bit far to walk, but not impossible. It might well take 45 minutes or so.

The closest tram stop to the concert venue is Lindenplatz in Altstetten. Tram number 2 stops there. Maybe the easiest way though is to catch the number 4 tram from the viaduct and ride to the terminus at Bahnhof Altstetten from where you can either walk or hop on the number 78 or 80 bus and ride 2 stops to Lindenplatz. At Bahnhof Altstennen you have to cross to the other side of the railway tracks using one of the subways. They are signposted.

I think if you take the number 4 tram, there is less walking involved.
