Lunch, if booked, will be taken at the venue at the Mensa
We politely ask you to register in time when you have reached the venue at both days.


Lunch will be included on both days at the venue if you book this option. You are free to take your own drinks and food to the venue. Please be aware that we are playing in a youth hostel and there will be youngsters around, so please behave properly. There is a shop in the Youth Hostel where you can buy drinks and Snacks. There are several supermarkets nearby for even more convenience, several fast food options are around the corner, too.


After your registration you’ll be receiving  the email-adress of the youth hostel. We have made a special deal for accommodation and have a contingent of about 50 beds reserved.
We only have a few single rooms reserved, so please group up whenever you are able to!
For more comfort than a youth hostel, there are plenty of options of Hostels and Hotels in walking distance of the venue. If you need help with anything just ask.

evening event(s)

For Saturday evening we plan a night at a local pub.


We strongly suggest to not come by car as parking and driving in cologne can be quite annoying. There is only limited parking space at the venue itself, for which you can pay at the youth hostel itself (35 Slots).  The venue is directly opposite of a railway station. There are some options to park your car nearby (none of them free), if you are looking for paid parking just follow the signs to the parking lots of cologne trade fair or KölnArena (which is the large Arena nearby). Both are close to the venue (<5min walking distance). 

other means of transportation
