BENDELUX WEEKEND 2023
24 August 2023 from 14:00 to 27 August 2023 from 14:00 CEST
Welcome to the BENDELUX WEEKEND 2023 which is hosted by EGEA Marburg this year. The event will take place on 24-27 August at the Edersee sports and study centre of the Philipps-Universität Marburg. Be prepared for an exciting weekend with great excursions and training sessions that you won’t forget! So pack your swimming trunks and sunglasses and celebrate the first BENDELUX WEEKEND since Corona with us.
Special thanks for the supportive entity EGEA Hannover! Without you the event would not have been able to take place!
How to get to the Location
Basically you have two options to arrive. Either you come by car to the above address of the Sport- und Studienheim Edersee of the Philipps-Universität Marburg. There will be enough parking spaces at the accommodation, but we recommend you to do some carpooling (there will be a docs for this later). The second possibility is to travel by train to the train station “Vöhl Herzhausen“. Be careful! It could be that you have to press a stop button on the train otherwise it might happen it won’t stop. From the train station you can have a nice hike to the accommodation or you can let us pick you up by shuttle transport. For this you can simply contact us in the Whatsapp group.
Of course you can also arrive by bike at the accommodation if you want to be very Eco friendly.
If you have further questions you can ask us in the Whatsapp group or write a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
102 people are attending BENDELUX WEEKEND 2023
Guided Ranger tour through the “Kellerwald-Edersee” National Park (10-12km, 5-6h)
We will start the tour at the car park “Strieder-Eiche” and walk out of the Aseler Bucht (bay) to the “Katzenberg” (Cat Mountain). Where you will find a magnificent view of the Edersee. From there the path will get narrower and stonier while you will continue your journey to the “Lindenberg”. After the “Lindenberg” the path will be very overgrown, so that you will only be able to see the “Edersee” through the treetops just in a few places. Your last sightseeing point will be the “Hünselburg” with the remains of medieval ramparts.
During the hike you will find a rare flora and a lot of different types of stones. At one point you will also see a landslide, which will be avoided via a secured path.
Hydrological Boat Excursion
Captain Lukas & Captain Michel welcome you to the Hydroligical Boat Excursion.
After a short introduction how to use the measuring instruments in the Partyroom, we will take a shuttle to the famous dam of the Edersee.
At the dam, you will split up into groups of 5-6 and recieve a boat to board. The boats will be available from 10:00-12:00 am.
We encourage you to go for a swim while being out on the lake.
Alcohol is not allowed on the boats.
After 12:00 we will compare and discuss the results. If there is still time left, we will enjoy some free time at the beach of the lake.
The goal of the excursion is to measure the waterquality of the Edersee.
Floristic Scavenger Hunt
The leisure activity deals with the flora around the Edersee. After a short introduction to floristic conditions in the area, the teams are ready for a search in the forest themselves. The goal of the scavenger hunt is to find as many plants as possible.
