All events are for both members and non-members of the Central Germany Branch. We look forward to a colorful and lively mix in our courses.

For our courses, which take place in the seminar house Kuckucksnest, we have information on accommodation, food and other useful tips summarized in this document: Kuckucksnest.

It is our intention to offer workshops that are fun and give you the opportunity to improve / learn something new. That is one of the reasons why the courses are divided into different levels. Before signing up for a course, please have a look at this page: course level list.
