At the Kartause in Gaming

We anticipate most people attending Isoecol will stay at the historic Kartause venue. This unique centuries old (from 1300's) venue features a wide range of modern individual and double rooms, and has plenty of dorm-style rooms (1-4 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.

Book your room during the Registration Process (see Registration) if you wish to specify rooms and names of registered persons to share accommodation with. You are welcome to bring a partner, family, or the kids.

For questions regarding accommodation, meals, or addressing special needs, please contact Ms Birgit Rigler (
