Accomodation

28th December

Monheim has no youth hostel. In 2018 the hotel prices will partly be higher than in 2016, because there will be a trade fair and they will demand business-tariffs. In addition to the mostly inexpensive private accomodation we found another two good-value hotels in the neighbouring town of Leverkusen and added them to our accomodation-list:

1
"Schlafpunkt" (ca. 20 - 28 € per person and night)
Trip to the competition site: 20 min by car; 50 min by public transport.
If required we will install in the mornings and evenings a direct bus transfer between "Schlafpunkt" and the competition site (journey time ca. 25 Min).

2
"RheinRiverGuesthouse" (ca. 35 - 50 € per person and night)
Trip to the competition site: 10 min on foot + 10 min bus ride.

Together with your booking request please give the keyword "Gitarrenwettbewerb"
