I use rubber bands on the boxes so it is easier for airport securty and the TSA to look as see what you have. You should enjoy the comradery meeting people that you just know by name from the Board.
Kassel is easy to get to but as it is in the centre of the country is 2 hour train from the main airports. THE RECOMMENDED HOTEL IS GOOD AND THE MEAL GOOD, the main language is obviously German but staying there using public transport is a pain! the town [1950/60 new build] is cheaper and an easy walk , or tram trip to the venue! we have done both ! as Kevin says CASH IS KING, there are real bargains to be had from the various sellers, and rare items,, go early and work fast as the bargains go fast. first time there i thought i had taken more than i could afford and spent 3/4 of my cash with the first dealer!
you will enjoy whereever you stay! if flying make sure the models are well packed ,TAKE SOME BOXES AS THE SMALLER DEALERS MAY NOT HAVE BOXES , make sure that they CAN BE EASILY OPENED and refastened as they look horrendous on the security Xray machines!!!
Open to public, no invitation needed.
There is a dinner at Waldhotel Schaerberg Friday night.
Bring lots of Euros ( cash ) no real facilities for credit cards.
