Travelling in Switzerland – What you need to know

The central location in Europe and the easy access to Switzerland will result in a large number of visitors. We expect 4,000 to 5,000 vehicles and about 10,000 participants. So certainly enough opportunities to exchange ideas from all over the world. 26 countries are currently represented among the registered participants.

The World Meeting will take place near Delémont, in the Canton of Jura. The meeting place is therefore close to the French border and easily accessible, even without a Swiss motorway vignette (CHF 40.-/year). The exact location is outside Delémont, between the villages of Courroux, Courrendlin and Val Terbi.
