The HER(R)BERGSKIRCHEN project facilitates public access to protected monuments of great architectural value. Therefore we ask our guests to treat the spaces and the volunteers that care for them with respect

Please note the following guidelines for your overnight stay in a Her(R)berg church:

  • When spending the night in the sacred HER(R)BERGSKIRCHEN, we expect our guests to act accordingly and treat the spaces respectfully at all times. Any inappropriate behavior and/or vandalism may result in the commencement of administrative offense proceedings.
  • Most HER(R)BERGSKIRCHEN are also open to visitors and thus remain as public spaces during the day. For this reason, overnight stays are usually only possible after 6 p.m. and until 9 a.m. the following day. Exceptions can be arranged with the respective hosts in advance.
  • The local parishes are not liable for any stolen property. If you would like to stay longer than one day in a Her(R)berskirche, you can have your luggage safely stored during the day after consulting with the local hosts.
  • The municipalities charge a tourist tax of 2.00 Euros per person per night. This is included in the price of the overnight stay. We therefore ask you to please fill out the registration form for the accommodation provided by the local hosts.
  • During your overnight stay, the hourly chime of the clock tower is switched off between the hours of 6:00pm and 9:00am.
