    General information

    Twice a year a week full of seminars and workshops will be held in the Osmanische Herberge, once in summer in the week preceding the SufiSoul-Festival, and once in winter during the turn of the year.

    The participiants of these "Camps" reside in the Herberge during the course of the week to partake in a wide variety of educational and recreational activities for all ages. These include Quran- and Arabic Lessons for all levels as well as sport and creative programmes.

    Particularly for teeangers the camp offers an opportunity to connect with Muslims of same age, and to experience a good time in community - as has been the case with the treehouse project from 2015.
