Possible venues

- KuBiZ Wallenberg (probably Tagungswerk KuBiZ: http://www.kubiz-wallenberg.de/wordpress/?page_id=223). It’s inside Berlin, maybe 20 minutes by public transport from the centre. This is where the Winter Meeting happened in 2013 as far as I know. I have contacted them, but they haven’t responded yet. -> Candid

- Wukania (http://www.wukania.net/index.php? option=com_content&view=article&id=121:sissi&catid=6:projekte&Itemid=16): I’ve been on some meetings there. It's north of Berlin, maybe 45 to 60 min from the centre. The nice thing is that it's donation-based, as they finance it by crowd-funding. It's normally only used in the summer, as the kitchen/toilets/ showers are outdoors and I think there is no heating. I contacted them but didn't get any response. -> Candid

- Tagungshaus Wernsdorf (http://www.tagungshaus-wernsdorf.de/). A participant of the Biketours 2013 and 2015 lives there. It's in the south of Berlin, about 45 to 60 min from the centre. Unfortunately, we would probably have to pay a fixed price for it. The official price is 13 € per person per night, which would be 390 € if we stay from Friday to Monday with 10 people. We could probably manage to get a discount of 50%, but it's still a lot of money. -> Candid

- Kesselberg (http://kesselberg.info/). A formally squatted and now bought piece of forest outside of Berlin (about 45 to 60 min from the centre) where about 100 people live. Apparently they have a seminar room. Didn't contact them yet.

- Quecke (http://quecke.net/en/), about one hour by train north-east of Berlin. I've never been there, but people say that it's a very nice place. I guess the disadvantage is that it's really far out, so people who might join spontaneously from Berlin might not want to go. Haven’t contacted them yet.

- Gelegenheiten (https://www.gelegenheiten-berlin.de/) has just been suggested. Don't know it, but will try to contact them.

Hey,

We are the Ecotopia Biketour, a political and environmental bicycle tour that has cycled through different countries in Europe every summer during the last 25 years. On the way we visit different social and ecological propjects and groups. There is more information about us on https://www.ecotopiabiketour.net/

We are looking for a room to host our Winter Meeting in Berlin next week-end, where we will make important decisions about the tour next summer and will start the preparation process.

We need a room where we can discuss, cook some food during the day, and ideally with an internet connections so that people can join over Skype. If it is possible, it would be ideal if we could also sleep in the place (which means we would arrive on Friday evening and leave on Monday morning), but this is not a must.

Do you have space to host us during those days?

Greetings from the Ecotopia Biketour Collective
