For the event we will built a very good elastic wooden floor into the venue. There is good aeration and inside and outside seating. With a very romantic view over the cityscape. The venue right next to the Rur river. There are two side rooms with enough space to chat and come together with an open fire place. There is a very good accommodation offer in the city for every budget, ranging from the youth hostel to very good hotels.
We recommend to book an extended stay in Monschau and to discover the suroundings of the Eifel National Park!
