Wintergatan Community Meetup 2023

4 - 6 August 2023, Rüdesheim am Rhein, Germany

About The Event

Community Meetup

The Wintergatan Community Meetup is a 3-day event organised by Wintergatan fans to meet up with fellow Wintergatan fans. During this event you can explore the real Marble Machines, live music, talks, making activities and games. We are hosted at Siegfrieds Mechanischem Musikkabinett in Germany, which among the Marble Machines houses many more musical instruments for you to experience.

The event takes place in the Musikkabinett's event halls. These are located right next to the train station. During the three days it's converted into a Wintergatan utopia. In the event halls there will be internet and power available, as well as food & drinks at a reasonable price. The Rüdesheim area has a camping site and hotels you can book separately to spend the night.

Do you want to know more about the event? Ask one of the participants from last year over on Discord! We are very grateful for everyone who was there for the first try-out last year, and we can't wait to greet you!
