Tux visits Tux – about 50 geeks and one huge penguin travelled south to the beautiful village of Lanersbach in Tux, Austria, to hack Linux, drink beer, and hike in the Alps.

The municipality of Tux [1], located in the Schwaz district of Tyrol, Austria, comprises the five villages of Vorderlanersbach, Lanersbach, Juns, Madseit, and Hintertux at the foot of the Hintertux glacier. From July 30 to August 6, 2011, hikers and hackers from various countries all over the world conquered the lovely village of Lanersbach for the 13th Linux Beer Hike (see the “Linux Bier Wanderung” box).

Most of us travelled quite a bit to get there, so it was nice to see the local Tourism Association give us a warm welcome, including some free Zillertal beer. (Sorry again for rickrolling you with QR codes!) We set up the hacklab in the “glacier hall” in the newly built “Tux Center,” from which we had a beautiful view of the Hintertux Glacier – an amazing sight.
