Morning Circle
Living at Schloss Broellin




Please keep in mind that Schloss Broellin is not a hotel and has not such standards.  Things are very basic over here but that’s where the atmosphere comes from.



IMPORTANT - Please don't forget:

*Health insurance (or valid travel insurance from your country) you have to present it upon arrival!!!
Without we cannot allow you to participate in the workshops as there could be always a risk of injury while dancing.
As schloss broellin e.V. cannot be responsible for your physical health you need to pay for any surgery by yourself!
Please check with your local health insurance company in your country or inform yourself through internet!

*Cash in Euro as we can't accept any credit card or traveller cheques and the next bank/ATM is in Pasewalk! (to change money at the bank, about 7 km away, means, that you
will miss half a day!)

Please keep in mind that for the general accommodation (dormitory/camping) you’ll have to bring a sleeping bag.
If wanted you can book a bedding for 20 Euro/stay (a change while your stay is 10 Euro).
If you rather camp than sleeping in a dormitory you’ll have to bring your own tent.

please consider/bring with you
if you stay at the dormitory:
- ear plugs (since you sleep with 10 - 20 people in one room, you may hear the noise as well as the organic sounds from breathing/snoring).
- eye mask (if you are sensitive to the sunshine)

if you book private rooms:
The rooms you could get have no shutters, blinds etc. neither do we have material to cover the windows. We recommend eye masks for everyone who needs it dark.


WARNING!

As we are far out in the nature please consider some encounter especially with mosquitoes and wasps!
Please bring some protection if needed as we do not have mosquito nets.
About wasps, which could be very active at this period:
usually they don't sting if we don't attack them but just in case, if you have any allergy against insect bites,
please bring anti histamine pills. (We will prepare some, though)
