Watch out in Kirchberg

Soon, some of you might be headed to Kirchberg for the yearly Wittgenstein Symposium organized by the Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society.

What you might know is that if you want to, you might bring your tent and camp for free near the swimming pool in this lovely village during the event.

What you might not know is that if you do, this involves some risk. In 2008 when I was there, our rather international camp was attacked by a bunch of young nationalists yelling scheissen Polaken raus and such (even though, only some of us were actually Polish). So, my advice, enjoy the event, it's definitely worth it, but be careful and don't walk around alone at night.
