This is a special night with nice food and most importantly a subsequent program organized by you! Usually, we have an IK choir performing and a lot of other acts. Also, since it is such a special night, feel free to dress up a little bit.

  • More information to the poster session, rainbow courses, accessibility and the sunshines and moonshines can be found on the website soon:




  • Sports: The surroundings are perfect for jogging or biking for those of you who like outdoor exercise. Also the Heinrich-Lübke house has an indoor pool and a sauna and you may play skittles, billiard or table-tennis.

This means that swimming clothes, sports clothes and table tennis rackets should be on your packing list.


  • Music in the fireplace area: At night there are often spontaneous jam sessions in the fireplace area. There is a piano there and you are of course welcome to bring your own instruments. So don’t be shy and join in!
