Private Accommodations

In certain cases, there will be the possibility to take advantage of our mediation of private accommodations. Private accommodations are apartments of private persons from our network who have at least one guest room.

The precondition for entitlement to private accommodations is that you have booked two classes, i.e., you are looking for accommodations in Hamburg for two weeks.

If we are successful in mediating such accommodations, administrative fees of 120€ become due. If you are interested in private accommodations, please note this on your registration form.

We are working on collaborations with additional providers in order to make reasonably priced, good accommodations available to all participants.
