At the Kartause in Gaming

Most people attending IsoEcol 2022 will want to stay at the historic Kartause venue. This unique centuries old (from 1300's) venue features a range of modern rooms, with plenty of dorm-style rooms (up to 4 people per room) at very low cost. We encourage participants, students, and teams to share all-male, all-female, or mixed rooms, as desired. Staying at Kartause will ensure the convenience of being onsite and fostering great social opportunities. There is also a brew pub onsite.
