Maps

Map of Linuxhotel and surrounding area.

Linuxhotel

Linuxhotel Villa Vogelsang is a hotel inside of a historical mansion. It is regarded as "one of the most unusual hotels in the Ruhr area". The nine guest rooms and suites as well as two meeting and seminar rooms are equipped with extensive technical facilities to conduct meetings and seminars on the topics of Linux and free software. The hotel and seminar rooms and the surrounding park are networked via Ethernet and wireless LAN.

During work days the Linuxhotel offers Linux and free software courses (e.g. FreeBSD, OpenBSD, pf, etc.).

Logistics

The Linuxhotel is located in the city of Essen. The next airports are Düsseldorf (DUS) and Dortmund (DTM). From there you can reach Essen by train. Use this page (Google translate) to check how to get there.

Accomodation

The Linuxhotel offers a maximum of 27 beds for accomodation. There are some single rooms but there are also double rooms for share.

Breakfast

Available at the hotel from 09:00 to 10:00.

Lunches

On saturday we can order a pizza and have a proper meal for dinner.

The hotel offers warm lunch on sunday.

Dinner places

Depending on the arrival time of the participants we will announce a dinner place for friday evening.

If the weather is nice we plan to have a BBQ in the hotel's surrounding park on saturday evening. In case of bad weather there's a restaurant which offers home cooking (i.e., solid, plain, but tasty meals like Schnitzel, etc.): http://www.hausgrossjung.de/

Most people seem to leave on sunday, so it is possible to have a simple bread and butter dinner at the hotel.

Developers are welcome to invite guests to attend the developer summit, subject to their tolerance for ceaseless hours of kernel-hacking, and availability of space at the venue.
