Lodging and prices

IASC 2018 will be held at Jugendherberge Eifelsteig in Gerolstein, Germany. The youth hostel is situated at the border of the town, inside a residential area surrounded by fields and forest. The building is equipped with various conference and work rooms, with place for about 15 and up to 100 persons. Full conference equipment is available like a beamer, a overheadprojector, TV and DVD, music equipment, wifi and also a copy and fax service. The outdoor facilities include lots of lawn area with some sports facilities, a children’s playground, a barbecue area and a fireplace – so very important for heathen gatherings.

The sleeping rooms have mostly bunk beds, with some single beds, full equipped with blankets and also sheets. A few rooms have their own bathroom. All other have common bath and shower rooms. For parents it will be interesting to know that the youth hostel offers baby beds, highchairs, baby monitors, changing mat and changing pail, a children’s toilet seat and a bottle warmer.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in a large dining room. Breakfast offers different sorts of bread and buns, choice of sausage and cheese, various jams, honey and nut nougat cream, breakfast cereals, cottage cheese or yogurt, fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, coffee, cocoa and tea. The lunch consists of a three-course meal with a large salad buffet. Dinner has a warm component, bread, a sausage and cheese selection and a large salad buffet. Of course the kitchen is prepared for food intolerances and habits, which can be indicated in the booking-form.

The hostel has its own cafeteria – so we will never have any coffee problems. Furher there is a reception with a little shop with souvenirs and leisure stuff.

A little more concrete: for IASC 2018 we have 144 places available indoors for the whole week, and a few more depending on the day. Outdoors is place for some tents and also a few pitches for motor-homes with electricity.

In Gerolstein itself there are hotels and guest houses for those who want to have a little bit more luxury or simply put more value on personal space, for which there will be day tickets available. A short stay is also possible, although, as always those who will stay the whole week have priority.


New this year are the solidarity prices. The estimated children reductions from the youth hostel was not according to our wishes.  We are offering free tickets for children up to 8 and reduced prices for children 9 to 16. We have to pay for them, though. To make this possible, there are solidarity tickets that can be purchased voluntarily. Nobody is obliged to buy these and there are no privileges if you decide to do so, but we do encourage everyone who is capable to do so. Click here to enroll.

Terms and conditions, cancellation and refund policy

Terms and conditions

1) International Asatru Summer camp (IASC) is a non-profit, non-commercial event that is privately carried and hosted by the Asatru-EU Network (AEUN).

2) Asatru-EU Network is in no way a legal body but rather an informal network. This implicitly means that registration for IASC is not a legally valid contract between the registrant and AEUN but rather an informal and private agreement. The registration includes no warranties and no liabilities on behalf of AEUN.

3) Financial transactions concerning IASC are handled by Haimo Grebenstein, Königstein, Germany, e-mail: <haimo@grebenstein.net>
Mr. Grebenstein is appointed to this task by Asatru-Eu Network (AEUN). Therefore, Mr. Grebenstein is not a contractor for IASC and is not liable to registrants of IASC, either.

4) The Code of Conduct is binding for all registrants.

5) Registrations are only valid when confirmed by email and having paid the down payment. They are treated as applications as long as the final payment has not been made.
Down payments will be 30% of the total amount of the registration after it is confirmed by the staff. If a registration is altered after the down payment has been made, the amount of the down payment is not affected.

6) Down payments are due within 3 weeks after notification by the booking committee. Final payments are due June 18th, 2018, except for late registrations after that date. For late registrations, the full amount is due immediately after notification.

7) Since there are limited capacities, not all applications for 2-bed-rooms or other lodging facilities may be fulfilled. The booking committee will contact you if your application cannot be met. If negotiations fail and you cancel your reservation due to that, there will be a full refund of the complete amount paid so far, regardless of the date.

8) If a shortage of desired lodging facilities occurs, the booking committee will assign the facilities according to the following order:
– duration of stay – registrations for the full week will be favoured
– age/health conditions – elderly and handicapped persons will be favoured
– date of registration – first come, first serve


9) Cancellation of registrations is possible at any time without giving a reason. Cancellation can be done either
– here in the booking frontend – edit your registration and select cancellation
– or by mail to <booking@asatru-summercamp.org> referring to the registration ID.


10) Refunding of already paid amounts:
– up to May 15th, 2018 all so far paid down payments or fees will be fully refunded except for a handling fee of 10,00 € per reservation (not per person) when cancelled.
– up to July 10th, 2018 all so far paid down payments or fees will be refunded 50% of the total registration fee.
– after July 10th, 2018, there will be no more refunds.

11) If registrants cannot take advantage of the reservation they made and have paid for after the camp has started on July 28th, 2018, there will be no refund of any sort. It does not matter if the reasons for that are based on their individual status or if they have been expelled from the camp by decision of the IASC Council.
