Arrival and Departure
Participants must be present from the very start of the weekend to the very end. There will be no exceptions made for late arrivals or early departures. Registered participants will receive information as to the exact address of our gathering point approximately 14 days before the start of the Boarding School Weekend.
The gathering point for all participants, irrespective of whether they have travelled by train or car is the nearest train station to our house. From there we will all go to the Boarding School together.
Car shares can be arranged if someone from a region wants to travel with someone and the driver is willing to take that person.
Our Boarding School is about 2 hours 30 minutes by train to the north of Berlin and about 3 hours to the east of Hamburg. By car it is a 2- hour drive from Berlin.
Our meetings in 2019 have been planned so that the Thursday before the start of the weekend is a public holiday in Germany. This makes it possible to make the journey to a place nearer the location of the Boarding School e.g. Berlin, the day before without having to take a day off work. This way the Boarding School Weekend can commence for everyone early afternoon on Friday.
The Weekend finishes at around 12.30 on Sunday. Leaving at 13.00 means you can be back in Berlin by 15.30.
When departing, participants are taken back to the station and from there can take the train or drive off in their cars, maybe taking a new friend along for the ride.
It is possible to request extra nights` accommodation in the Boarding School for those who either want to extend their holiday or leave a day later feeling more relaxed.
