Some excursion sites charge an entrance fee. And maybe we'll have a coffee on the way. We recommend calculating around €30 for this.

If you play a musical instrument, please bring it with you!

High spirits and clean drinking water are already on site.
We cook vegetarian, sometimes vegan food, usually without wheat and, if possible, organic. We are prepared for gluten-free food, as well as diabetic cuisine. We sweeten sparingly and only with agave syrup, coconut blossom sugar, birch sugar and the like. Dairy products from cows, sheep and goats are available at one's own choice.
We offer coffee, instant or from ground beans, daily and in abundance.
We buy enough food in advance, so you don't need to bring anything with you.
Anyone who needs something different due to intolerances or out of pure desire should take good care of themselves.

If you come by public transport:
Willingen train station or bus to Rattlar (Upland). We will be happy to pick you up from there by car. Walking to the accommodation is a bit far.

And here's the small print:
Participation in our offers is voluntary and occurs at your own risk (“self-sufficiency”).

You can also stay in the accommodation or explore the surrounding area on your own. Please undertake any long hikes with at least two people and in consultation with the course leader.

We take care of the shopping and meals for the first few days and are happy if the participants actively contribute to our collective provision according to their respective possibilities and we share the tasks.

General: The Corona virus, Ukraine and climate change are currently dominating the headlines. We read a lot on these topics and deal with them. Although one or the other view seems plausible, we are not sure whether this does justice to reality. The truth has many faces. During the hiking weeks we would like to focus primarily on future-oriented topics that we can also influence practically. We will of course observe any requirements from the authorities.

If you still have any questions just let us know.
