Technical Problems with Closing Systems & no new Users

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the closing mechanism and thus advise against the usage of the rooms. Reservations sometimes fail and doors fail to open from time to time, even with reservation. Bookings are now the user’s responsibility. Important: If the door to your music room fails to open, please do not contact the house service. Please write an email to Sadly, no new users can be registered at the moment. Please be patient until the beginning of June and check this page regularly.
