Access to Wildenhof and Overnight Possibilities

All day guests need to check in with the facility managers, and be prepared to show their university or student ID. New visitors will be told the most important rules. Those not allowed to use the facility will be asked to look for another spot on the lake.

Students and members of the University have the possibility to do sports and relax here. Every year an attractive program of water sport courses is offered, including kayaking, rowing, sailing, surfing, and diving. A pétanque terrain, table tennis, and beach volleyball court are also available.

All institutes and institutions have the possibility to hold seminars, workshops or excursions here from Tuesday to Thursday. Those who wish to stay the night in the Eifel can do so in their own tent or in one of the Wildenhof's 40 beds. Overnight stays in the house must be booked by phone or email through the Service Point of the University Sports Center. In case of free capacity, beds can be booked on short notice in the Wildenhof. The fees for the campsite are paid on site. There are also a couple options for board: guests can either use the self-service kitchen or they can borrow the grill from the facility managers. The gates are closed at 10pm sharp and quiet hours are enforced from 11pm. Wildenhof is not suitable for excessive parties, even if the name suggests otherwise.
