VENUE

The  workshop  will  take  place  in  the  charming  town  of  Brixen-
Bressanone,  near Bozen-Bolzano  in South  Tyrol at  the heart  of the
Dolomites  - the  pink  mountains of  the  Alps.  Like  Bozen-Bolzano,
Brixen-Bressanone has always been a crossroads of various cultures and
it  is  distinguished  by  its  mediaeval  Gothic  architecture.   The
mediaeval alleys and the wealth  of historical references are an ideal
starting point for excursions  into the countryside and for practising
a whole  variety of sports  and leisure activities.   Leaving directly
from the town  centre delegates can set off on their  bikes or on foot
for   excursions   into   the   surrounding   hills   and   mountains.
Brixen-Bressanone is on the main arterial road between Austria/Germany
and Italy and  it is easily accessible from  everywhere by train, car,
bus or plane.
