How do we get from the Berlin Airports to EJB Werbellinsee and back?We will provide you with a shuttle from the airports Berlin-Tegel and Berlin-Schönefeld. It will cost about 10 EUR per person and way which will be added to your invoice. We will need your flight information by March 31 in order to plan the shuttles.
How do we get from/to our Berlin hotel to/from EJB Werbellinsee?We recommend to take the RE3 train leaving every hour from Berlin Hauptbahnhof (Main Station) to Eberswalde. We will provide a free shuttle from Eberswalde train station to EJB Werbellinsee. Please inform us by March 31 about your arrival time in Eberswalde. You may also book a Eurofest shuttle from an airport, but that means you will need to get to the airport from your hotel. The same applies for the departure after Eurofest.
Can we arrive to EJB Werbellinsee before April 27 or leave later than May 2? Yes, as long as there are free beds within EJB. The additional costs (about 30 EUR per day and person) will be added to your invoice. You may have to change rooms for the extra days. There will be no additional program offered by Odyssey of the Mind.
Can we stay in Berlin before or after Eurofest? We recommend to plan additional days in Berlin if you want to see the city. We will provide you with a list of recommended hotels and hostels, but you will need to contact them and book rooms yourselves.
What is the Mixed Problem?Three teams from three different countries will form a Mixed Team and solve a special problem during Eurofest. At the last Eurofest day, they will present their solution on stage. Teams may use their Long-term props and/or create new ones. Always a great fun and an opportunity to start lifetime friendships.
What is the International Fair?Learn about other cultures and teach others about yours – bring little traditional souvenirs or food from your country and sell/trade/present it to/with others. Each country will be given a few tables (depending on how many teams they have) that you may use as your booth.
What is the Cultural Festival?At the Cultural Festival, every participating country will have 8 minutes to present its culture on stage – for example by dance, a song, a video, a mix of all or whatever you like. All teams from a country must agree on what to put on stage. The time limit will not be extended!
Will towels and bed linens be provided during Eurofest?Bed linens will be provided. We recommend to bring your own towel.
Will the bathrooms be en-suite or shared?This depends on the type of housing. In some buidlings, the bathrooms are en-suite. In others, it will be shared. Please understand that we will house your team in order to allow as many teams as possible to take part and that we will not be able to consider accomodation preferences unless there is a specific reason.
Will there be Internet connection in the camp?You will have the possibility to buy a WIFI voucher at the EJB front desk. Unfortunately, there is no free WIFI access. Mobile coverage is average in the camp.
