Germany

How much does it cost?

The entrance fee will probably (!) be 7.50 euro per person per day. This applies to everyone (except reporters), no matter if you are a competitor, guest, parent of a competitor or someone else! Please consider registering in advance, since it simplifies the planning for us.

For beginners...

There will be plenty of time to test the equipment (for example the official timing device, the Stackmat timer) and discuss the rules if you have questions. However, every competitor should have read the official WCA regulations at least once before attending the competition!

Hotels nearby

Even though the competition will be held in a room of a youth hostel, in-house accomodations will only be available to a limited extent (only for Saturday night). Here are some hotels that are located nearby (within walking distance) for competitors who wish to arrive on Friday or earlier.

Hotel 7. Himmel / Potsdamer Hof is about 8 minutes (on foot) away from the venue.
Hotel am Potsdamer Platz is also less than 10 minutes (on foot) away.
Hotel Altberlin has about the same distance from the venue.

For more hotels nearby we recommend Google Maps.
