As per BGG, the Facebook appears to be a closed group.

An English translation would be appreciated? Are tehre any strange rules (this isn't a different mage each round or anything?)

I'm trying to see if I might be able to get to this. You had 26 players last year?

What time does it start and end each day? How is public transport in the evening getting to Bad Nauheim from Frankfurt am Maine airport?

Public transportation from Frankfurt is easy.
 
Not really anything strange going on:

You have to bring to spellbooks/mages. One for match 1-3 and another for match 4-6.

Scoring is a bit different:
Draw 1 point + 1/20 life diff.

Win   2 point + 1/20 life diff.

It has the desired effect - it rewards aggressive play that can actually kill the opponent mage before time.

A few minor rules, very much like the AD online tourneys.

I really recommend this and hope to be there again this year :)
  • Favourite Mage: Wychwood Druid
"Töten". "Alles Töten".
Best strat advice ever

Can I infer from this that it's Swiss, rather than single/double elim?

It's Swiss alright.

No.. Wait. It means I'm bad  :'(
