How to get to the venue:

- You can reach San Braulio Street, where the venue is located, by walking down a long avenue called Calle Alfonso (a pedestrian-only shopping street). This is one of the main avenues in Zaragoza, which leads to the square where the Pilar Basilic is located. If you walk down Calle Alfonso towards the Pilar Square, turn right on Miguel Molino and keep walking into San Braulio.

- The nearest tram stop is that of Plaza España, but if you stay in one of the hotels we recommend below you can walk to the venue, as they are all within walking distance. Just in case, these are some taxi phone numbers: (+34) 976424242 and 976757575.

Zaragoza is the fifth largest city in Spain but it is very manageable. It is easy to orientate yourself in the city centre if you always bear in mind the key landmarks: Plaza del Pilar (where the Basilic, the town hall and the tourist office are located), Plaza de España (the main square where Paseo Independencia ends and where the tram may leave you if you choose this means of transport), and Calle Alfonso and Calle Don Jaime (the two main parallel avenues to the left and right of San Braulio Street).


Accommodation

Zaragoza is a city that offers a great variety of hotels and hostels, so you should not have any problem when booking your accommodation on websites such as Booking, Atrápalo, or Hostelworld.

However, the University of Zaragoza has accommodation agreements with several hotels in the city. We have pre-booked a limited number of rooms for conference participants at those hotels which are closest to the venue. Special rates will be applied if you make explicit reference to the conference and the University of Zaragoza when booking your room, so when you contact one of these hotels, please indicate that you are participating in the International Conference organised by the Department of English and German Philology of the University of Zaragoza (in Spanish "Congreso Internacional del Departamento de Filolología Inglesa y Alemana de la UZ"). These rates will apply to bookings confirmed one month before the conference at the latest (5 April). All rooms are en-suite. Rates (per room/per night) include VAT and breakfast.

* This is the hotel where the wine reception will take place on Wednesday, 6 May.

If you decide to book in another hotel, you’d better choose one in the city centre or in those areas of the city which are close to a tram stop (the stop that is closest to the conference venue is "Plaza España"). You can check all this on Google Maps.

This time we are not holding the conference in the facilities of the University of Zaragoza but if you are interested in getting to our main campus you could take the tram up to the stop in Plaza San Francisco.

Security

Zaragoza is a safe city, even at night. However, we would expect all participants to take the appropriate measures and be responsible for their own security. We also advice you carry a copy of your Identification Card or passport at all times during your stay in Zaragoza.


Foreign exchange

The currency in Spain is the European Euro (€). We strongly recommend that you exchange your money before your journey as currency exchange services may not be available at your arrival time. Local taxis, public transport, and restaurants will not accept any other currency.
