How can I participate?

To take part at the competition it is necessary to register beforehand (see Register). We will accept at most 100 competitors. Competitors or guests who are not registered will not be able to get in!

How much does it cost?

The entrance fee is 5 euro per person per day with pre-payment (see pre-payment system) and 10 euro per day with on-site payment. This applies to everyone (except reporters), no matter if you are a competitor, guest, parent of a competitor or someone else!

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 must have read the official WCA regulations at least once before attending the competition, as their knowledge is important during the competition!

Where can I sleep?

There are plenty of hotels in Gütersloh, for example Also have a look at Google Maps.
