Additional Information:

Andalo is located on the Paganella mountain west of the Adige valley a little north of Trento. The nearest railway station is Mezzocorona on the Munich-Brenner-Verona railway line. Mezzocorona train station is about 15 km north of Trento. 10-15 minutes by train. Fast trains do not stop there. All trains stop in Trento.

There are two railway lines between Trento and Mezzocorona and two railway stations at Mezzocorona. The line FTM (Ferrovia Trento Malè) is NOT the correct one. If you arrive at Trento by train from the North or the South you should board the train to Mezzocorona at the same station where you arrived.

Participants arriving by train at Mezzocorona railway station on Tuesday, January 7 can use the Isodarco shuttle service from the station to the hotel. A minibus or a car with an Isodarco sign will be waiting outside the railway station. In case you do not find anyone, call the hotel (Tel. (+39) 0461 585813).

To better coordinate this shuttle transportation please let us know your traveling plans and your arrival time at Mezzocorona as soon as possible.
