Travelling to Berlin
Berlin currently has two international airports, Berlin-Tegel (TXL) and Berlin-Schönefeld (SXF). Reaching the event takes about the same time by public transport, so you can freely choose an airport based on the flights.
By public transport
The location is just next to the bus stops Kruppstr. (Berlin) and Quitzowstr. (Berlin). Even a walk from Berlin's central train station (Berlin Hauptbahnhof) is just 20 minutes.
Parking close to the event and in most spots in Berlin may be subject to high fees, so I highly recommend going by public transport.
The weather in August in Berlin is usually really hot, sunny and a bit rainy. So prepare sunglasses, sunscreen and an umbrella.
The A&O Berlin Hauptbahnhof (Lehrter Straße 12) is an affordable hostel close to the event. It should be the best option for most participants.
Ballhaus Berlin Hostel (Chausseestraße 102) could be a good low-cost alternative based on the experience of Alexander Rechitskiy, but the distance from the hackathon is a little further than in case of A&O.
Please contact Colin if you need financial support for your travel and accommodation expenses. ReactOS Deutschland e.V. is able to cover some. Participation mustn't be a matter of your financial situation.
