Lissberger Leierkurse 2020

25th - 27th September 2020

Invitation to the Lissberger Leierkursen 2020


Dear Hurdy Gurdy Friends,


Kurt and his team have been meeting these last weeks and discussing how the chances look for the Lissberger Leierkurse 25th - 27th September 2020.

Based on the current situation of the corona virus (Covid-19) pandemic and the current regulations in the state of Hessen, we would like to hold the workshops and invite you to join us in Lissberg. We are currently working on a hygiene concept - which is of course a work in progress due to changing regulation and will communicate this shortly before the workshops take place.


The most important points:

- Workshops will have a maximum of 5 participants
- Four workshop groups in sufficiently large rooms
- Disinfectant in all workshop rooms
- Meal with the required "social"/physical distance


Workshop tutors are Peter Streng, Ron Winkler, Hendrik Ardner and Alex BlochGerhard Ganz will also be there to help with any problems with instruments.


The workshop fee is €120,00. You will need to organise and pay for meals and accommodation yourself, these costs are not included in the workshop fee. As at previous workshops we will be able to use the delivery service offered by "Da Roberto" in Ortenberg. The restaurant offers inexpensive meals (also vegetarian).


As far as the evenings are concerned, sessions, singing and dancing will possibly not be permitted and/or it wouldn't be the thing to do. However, if the weather is good we can sit outside in small groups and enjoy the scenery and good conversations.


We will inform all participants about our hygiene concept shortly before the weekend. We ask all participants to adhere to the general social/physical distancing rules as well as the right way of coughing and sneezing (into your elbow). Please avoid handshakes, hugs etc. Should you have any of the typical symptoms associated with the corona virus (fever, dry cough, diarrhoea, loss of sense of smell or taste) within 14 days before the workshops begin, please contact us. You will not be able to participate in the workshop.


As the number of participants is limited, we will have a waiting list in case a place becomes availabe and contact those on the list accordingly.


We wish everyone the best of health and look forward to another great hurdy gurdy weekend in Lissberg!

Accommodation / Catering:

The "Burgerstiftung Alte Schule Lissberg" has a limited number of beds in shared accommodation. Please book direct with the Burgerstiftung:

These costs are not included in the workshop fee.

B&Bs are few and far between in Lissberg itself. In the surrounding area, such as Ortenberg, there are some. Anyone wishing to stay in a B&B will need to organise a room themselves:


There is only a butcher in Lissberg, so you'll need to bring some provisions with you for the weekend. As at previous workshops we will be able to use the delivery service offered by "Da Roberto" in Ortenberg. The restaurant offers inexpensive meals (also vegetarian). Please note that these costs are not included in the workshop fee.
