5 —Visitor Information

The conference Rediscovering the City, will take place on Friday 20th March. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Please register ahead of time. The workshops on 19 and 21 March are also available by advanced booking only (go to the programme for more info). Other events are free and open to general public.


The event venues are all located in central Katowice. Due to heavy traffic and challenging one-way street systems and the fact that all the events are within a maximum of 12 minutes’ walk from the train station, visitors are recommended to move around on foot Katowice.
