Please feel free to add stuff if you think something is missing here.


Unlike in previous years we will not stay at Hotel Regina in St Augustin but at Hotel zum Stern in Siegburg. FrOSCon was not able to tell us if there are still beds left in Hotel Regina and when they will be given to the projects.

The hotel is close to the station Siegburg. From there you can reach any other destination by train and FrOSCon is just 2 stops / Minutes away by tram (STR 66)

As of 2011-07-21 rooms have been booked by the event owner. If you need one please add a check mark in the table in the hotel room column.


We have a devroom on Sunday and want to use it for a FAD
