First dinner will be at 19:00 h, followed by our opening ceremony at 21:00 h.

Since we have all waited for a long time to celebrate together again, we will keep it short and start our first party right after the opening.

At the opening, Team Schwelle.Vienna will give introductions as well as an overview of the schedule, location and rules for the festival.

COVID-19 Policy

We require all participants to be vaccinated or arrive with a valid PCR-Test.

Tested participants will be tested once again at the retreat. (Antigen)

Exact COVID Measures are subject to change according to official Corona Mandates at the time of the Event.

Safer Space

Safe, sane & consensual:
All encounters are based on principle Safe-Sane-Consensual (SSC). SSC guarantees that a space is created for everyone involved, in which you can rely on others. This is the way to feel safe to try something out. We will provide workshops on that topic. Since we take the SSC principle very seriously, we do not use drugs at the festival. During the workshops we also don’t allow the consumption of alcohol. We can only take responsibility for our actions and feelings if we are fully conscious, if we are sober.

Safer sex:
is an important part of a sex-positive attitude, there will be a workshop on this topic. We have also provided condoms, gloves and disinfectants for you. Please also familiarize yourself with what safe(r) sex means and what you have to watch out for. It is the responsibility of each participant to act responsibly. Support each other in this.

Bathing Pond & Hotel Floor

Please take care for our pond !

Do not use body oil or other body products before you swim in our natural bathing pond.

The pond has a sensitive ecological system which keeps the water clean without any chemicals.

Body care products will harm this system. Please only enter the pond from the front side where are no plants.

Please take care if you walk or dance barefoot on the wooden floor on the ground floor. The floor is beautiful, but old and splinters might occur if not careful.
