Re: Fwd: PDF with photos "how to get there"

Hey Laura,

thanks so much for making a start on this. It already looks really
good and having two pages as you suggest also gives us plenty of
space for some more text. I've included some ideas below.

We should find out this week. Richi?

Additional data I could imagine to be useful include

  - phone numbers, as you say, incl. emergency 112 etc.
  - the actual street address
    (Tiergartenstrasse 5, 69120 Heidelberg)
  - a short text description of the public transport route
    "Take bus 32 leaving west-bound (second set of tracks) in
    direction of 'Kopfklinik' [check wiki] and get out at
    … — approx. 15 minutes one way."
  - info about the ticket needed for the public transport trip
    "A one zone ticket costs 2,60 € and can be bought from the
    driver, but should ideally be bought from ticket machines at the
    station to avoid delays. Also, some rail tickets include +city
    or +mobil options which let you travel on the bus for free"
  - information about acceptable forms of payment at the venue
    "Cash, Visa, MasterCard; there is a cash machine close to the
    venue, but might be easier to pick up some cash at the station"

> Maybe put a small map of Heidelberg? A plan of the venue? No idea.

One idea might be to put a 5×3 grid of photos (with less space
between them) on page 2 and fill page 1 with more information?

We have 14 pictures and if you do a 5×3 grid, then one slot is
available. Sure, a little map with the station and the hostel
circled would probably help a bit.
