Is there a safe place to store my bike if I bring it?

Bikes can be stored in the storage room at your accommodation; however, please bring an extra lock to secure your bike. There are several ways to insure your bike against theft and damage at your local insurance company.

We do not accept liability for loss, damage or theft of bicycles.

On site, the group can be split up into different levels if required.
If the group is too small we can differentiate by using a GPS.
