Lake Berzdorf - The perfect location for learning & leisure

Lake Berzdorf, just located south of the German City Görlitz offers the best opportunities for a retreat, some studies, and lots of sports activities. Görlitz with its spectacular buildings and rich heritage and nature is just 2:45hrs by train south-east from the German capital Berlin.

Blended Learning - Quality Time On Site

Personal discussions and interaction are most valuable. We don'r waste time with theoretical basics, hence I apply the blended learning concept and combine online and in person seminars.

  • Online

    Every seminar starts with a short online course, where the topic will be introduced and basic knowledge will be provided, which we need during the seminar in Tauchritz.

  • Seminar in Tauchritz

    During the seminar on-site, we want to focus on the interpersonal discussions, brainstorming, and activities at the lake and in the surrounding nature.

  • Online

    After the seminar, the results will be summarized and reflected in an online session. Notes and material from the workshop will be provided. With this blended learning technique, a deeper learning experience is achieved.
