GORGG 2008 Hotel Info

The Nordkolleg in Rendsburg is the perfect site for Das GORGG 2008. It is located not too far from Rendsberg near the channel connecting the North Sea and the Baltic Sea (Nord-Ostsee-Kanal). The Nordkolleg was founded for adult education. They offer a lot of language courses, mainly German for students from Norway and Sweden. Secondly, animportant task of Nordkolleg is education in music, mainly classical, but also jazz. In addition to this, they organize weekends for 15 interested readers to talk in a very private atmosphere with an author: two of those often-famous guests were Lars Gustafsson and Günter Grass.

The Nordkolleg is an ensemble of flat brick buildings which surround a very nice garden. The Kolleg offers a variety of rooms to come together: a lounge, a room with a bar, rooms in different sizes to make music - one of them gives space for 150 people and would allow GORGG's traditional concert and banquet. We could use different pianos, grand pianos, a small Roland. And, if needed, we could ask for using instruments and amplifiers of the federal states jazz orchestra, which often meets here.

In addition Nordkolleg has a great kitchen where the crew would prepare four meals a day for us.
