The Lyceum is an assembly of large buildings at the north-eastern end of the village about
200 m above the main road. The access road departs from the main road near a little chapel (see map of Zuoz). From the train station the Lyceum can be reached by a
15 minutes walk uphill.
All participants will be accommodated at the Lyceum where they will also have their meals. As the Lyceum is a boarding school, you should not expect very luxurious rooms. The bedrooms have hot and cold water and there are enough shared bathrooms and showers on the floor. Towels are available in the rooms (only one per person), but it is recommended to bring an additional towel. It is also recommended to bring shower gel, hair dryer, razor etc. and an adapter for Swiss plug sockets with you. Keys for the rooms are not available. However, valuables can be locked in the secretariat.
The whole Lyceum including the school area is a NON-SMOKING AREA.
Smoking is allowed only at the marked smoking area!
4. Car park
If you arrive by car, please use the area in front of the main entrance of the Lyceum only for unloading the car. For parking use the marked parking place.
