About the IPS:

 

The International Philosophical Seminar (IPS), held each summer in the pleasant alpine atmosphere of Northern Italy, brings together a group of highly distinguished international scholars in philosophy and literary theory.

Directions to the Hotel Tianes Hof

 

By plane:

 

The most convenient (and perhaps least expensive) flight is to Frankfurt or Munich or Milano. From some European cities, there may be flights directly to the Bolzano airport.  The least expensive car rentals are located in Frankfurt or Munich. In Europe, take the train or drive to Bressanone (Brixen) or Bolzano (Bozen), Italy.  Upon arrival in Bolzano, call 700097 and ask for Konrad or Jasmine who will arrange to drive you to the hotel (about 45 minutes into the mountains).

 

By car:

 

From the South, take the autostrada to Bolzano (Bozen).  From Bolzano, continue north to Prato Isarco (Blumau), then to Siusi (Seis) and finally to Castelrotto (Kastelruth) with a very brief ride to Tianes Hof near S. Michele.

 

From the North, drive over the Brenner Pass to Bressanone [Brixen]. From Bressanone, continue south to Ponte Gardena (Waidbruck), cross the bridge, make a right after crossing the train tracks and follow the mountain road to Castelrotto and then to S. Michele. Another way from Ponte Gardena: make a left after crossing Ponte Gardena, follow road to St. Ulrich and just before St. Ulrich turn right on the road leading to Seiseralm and follow signs to the Hotel Tianes shortly after S. Michele.
