Summer Camp 2020

Every year, the Berlin LINKE Internationals have a Summer Camp in the Naturfreunde Haus Hermsdorf, a youth hostel-type place in the countryside, 30 minutes outside Berlin. We provide accommodation and a wide programme of meetings, Workshops and culture.

Overnight accommodation is free, though this year is more limited because of COVID-19. We have 7 rooms, which are available to any group of people who are prepared to share. On top of that, there is plenty of camping space if you want to bring a tent. We have arranged the programme so that it will be possible to attend the conference and stay in your own home in Berlin.

Because of COVID-19, this year's Summer Camp was postponed from the original date and is now taking place on 12 and 13 September. We are just about ready to take bookings. We will prioritise families with children. If you would like to book a place or would like more information, please contact us at You can also look at our Summer Camp FAQ page

Here is the provisional timetable. Please note that this timetable is subject to change and not all speakers have confirmed yet. We will send out a final timetable nearer that date.
