Getting there

The Summer School takes place at:
Lützerath 6
41812 Erkelenz

The closest train station is Erkelenz. During the week you can take Bus EK3 in the direction of “Erkelenz, Keyenberg Schule” and Bus EK1 in the direction of “Erkelenz, Venrath, Kuckum”. Get out at „Lützerath Umgehung“. Then it’s just 50 m to the camp. The last bus leaves Erkelenz at 7:22 pm!

Please note: There are school holidays (“Ferientage”) until the 23rd of August in Northrhine-Westfalia, please consult the corresponding bus schedule (page 3 of the pdf). Furthermore, the bus does not always go directly to „Lützerath Umgehung“. In this case, we recommend asking the bus driver to let you depart between the stops „Holzweiler“ and „Keyenberg“. For more information on this, check out this map.

Please note: There is no public transport at the weekend! You have the following options:
> On Saturday, 20th of August, at 3pm one extra bus will go from the train station in Erkelenz directly to the camp. For the bus, a donation of approximately 1-2 € would be great!
> There are the so called “Multibusse”, which have room for seven people. These busses have to be booked an hour in advance via phone (+49-(0)2431-886688) and cost the normal bus fare.
> A camp shuttle will run between the camp and the train station as required. We will try to make it run frequently and regularly but cannot guarantee its permanent availability.
> We will provide some bikes at the train station in Erklenz. The bike ride is approx. 10 km from Erkelenz. You can check out this possible bike route on
> Walking, hitch-hiking …
