Early Arrival

Bed & Breakfast

Back again for 2018: FWH B&B. This is our version of an Early Arrival, where FWH acts as a bed & breakfast location to allow those coming from far to relax or do some sightseeing.

FWH hasn’t officially started during the Early Arrival. If you would like you can opt to help out staff, in which case please contact us in advance. All help is greatly appreciated!

Cost & Dates

FWH B&B will cost 40,00 euro and you get access to a room from Thursday April 12th at 18:00


Please note that rooms and room-sharing for B&B will be arranged onsite. We will try to put you with friends, and if possible in the room we booked you for the rest of the weekend, but not all rooms might be available to us at that point. Because of this available rooms might differ from your original share. This means you might have to share your room with another FWH attendee and you might have to switch rooms on Friday (April 13th) to get your original room-share/room-type.

Eating Out

Breakfast will be provided on the Friday morning, however you will need to make your own arrangements for lunch and dinner. Luckily there serveral options close to the location!
