Afacan entdecken
The amenities

The Afacan grounds cover an area of about 8000 square meters and are laid out as a park with many different plants and animals: mulberries, figs, apricots, pomegranates, plums, peppers, purslane, arugula, turtles, squirrels, insects and many kinds of birds, especially swallows, who persistently nest in Afacan. We use treated, reused water to irrigate, so we can keep the area green even at the height of summer.

There is a lot of room both inside and outside for games and sports, for artistic activities, for relaxing, learning, conversation and creativity. There are specially equipped rooms that can be used by everyone and we provide a wide range of materials – it is up to the groups what they want to do with it! The Afacan team doesn’t offer “entertainment,” but we do offer every possible form of support. It is important to prepare for a stay at the meeting center ahead of time, depending on whether it is meant to be a time of coming together with others, relaxing, evaluating a trip or learning.

  • a swimming pool with goals that can be set up for water polo
