The summerschool will take place at
the Heimvolkshochschule Lubmin. Lubmin is a small health resort situated
in the Northeast of Germany at the Baltic Sea.
If you like to get a first impression of Lubmin, have a look:
A wide beach is approximately 10 meters away
from the Heimvolkshochschule. The Heimvolkshochschule consists of a main
house with living rooms, seminar rooms, a PC room and dining rooms. Several
smaller bungalows are at the area of the Heimvolkshochschule together
with a fire place, table tennis plates and a volleyball field.
One of the next bigger cities is Greifswald, an old city in the Hanseatic
League. Greifswald university was founded in 1456 and is one of the oldest
universities in Europe.
How to get to the summerschool
From Berlin (usually the train starts in Berlin-Ostbahnhof,
2 stations by S-Bahn from Alexanderplatz) you have to go by train to Greifswald-MainStation
(in German: Greifswald-Hauptbahnhof; NOT Greifswald-Süd!!!). It is
possible to go from other Cities in Germany to Greifswald, but trains
won't be so frequently - so Berlin is a good choice for a transfer.
From Greifswald-Hauptbahnhof we will catch you,
because Lubmin is still 16km away and buses go not very frequently - if
at all at the weekend. For this reason we will need your time of arrival.
Trains to Greifswald go nearly every hour from Berlin.
The final destination of the train is usually Stralsund.

The cheapest ticket to Greifswald from Berlin may
be the so called "Ostsee-Ticket" for 39€ return. If you
are more than one person travelling, the 2nd -5th person will pay only
half the price. You will have to return within 9 days. Here are some specifications
for the Ostseeticket (only in German):
