Staying in private and communal accommodations

The Reformationsjubiläum 2017 association (“r2017”) offers participants the option of staying in accommodation that can be booked with their ticket for a Kirchentag on the Way. Signing up is possible now and ends on 1 March 2017. If you register with “my r2017” you can indicate your desired accommodation online. r2017 does not arrange hotel reservations and suggests that you contact the Opens internal link in current windowTourist-Information in the respective cities.

Accommodation area
In order to be able to provide enough accommodation for all participants, r2017 has mapped out an accomodation area for each Kirchentag on the Way city. This is done to ensure that it will be possible to travel to the venues by public transport. The transportation pass, that will most probably be included in the Day ticket, Admission passes and Ten-Town tickets, will of course be valid over the whole accommodation area.

Communal accommodation
Communal accommodation means having places to sleep in schools. About 15 people can stay overnight in a classroom. A simple breakfast is included in the price. People staying here are asked to bring their own sleeping bag, camping mat (air mat), towels and breakfast plates and cutlery.

The communal accommodation is closed daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (except on the day of arrival). On the departure day (28 May 2017) everyone should have packed up and left the communal accommodation by 9 a.m. You will be told where your accommodation is located about three weeks before the Kirchentag on the Way.

Staying in communal accommodation will cost €8 per person and night. If you buy an Admission pass or a Ten-Town ticket you may only book three successive nights. If you buy a Day ticket you may book one or two successive nights.

Private accommodation
Private accommodation means staying with private hosts who kindly extend hospitality to visitors – however not on a commercial bed-and-breakfast basis. Generally, they will provide a simple breakfast to start the day. Since the availability of private accommodation is limited we ask you to understand that places will be allocated first to participants with disabilities.

Please note that each overnight visitor will receive a personal accommodation assignment (exception: married couples and families). The accommodation assignments vouchers will be sent out about three weeks before the Kirchentag on the Way.

The lump sum for booking private accommodation is €24 per person for no less than three nights. You can book private accommodation only if you purchase an Admission pass or a Ten-Town ticket.
