You will stay in shared rooms in the guesthouse of a Berlin canoe club near the HTW Berlin. During the Summer School you will live and work in a community of your own design. Two participants from Berlin will be at your side as team leaders. The house is for the group’s use only and at your responsibility.

Located directly on the river spree, the accomodation has a barbecue area, kitchen, large common room, shared sanitary facilities and free WiFi.
