General rules of behaviour

In order for the event to take place more often and for us all to have a great experience together, there are some rules of conduct on the part of both the hotel and us.


Of course there is NO dress code as long as you are not naked! Wear what you feel comfortable in and your genitals are covered.

Also, no bare bottoms on chairs, seats, etc.

Latex, oil, sprays etc. - PLACE A TOWEL UNDERNEATH!

With latex, please always place a towel underneath! This applies to all seats, chairs, bar stools, etc.

Also make sure not to spread sweat everywhere. 

To reduce the risk of slipping and not to make it unnecessarily difficult for the cleaning staff, please refrain from using sprays and rather use care products directly on cloths, etc.

Smoking is prohibited throughout the whole house, please use the outdoor area and dispose of your cigarettes in the ashtrays provided.
