Visit

If you want to visit our Hackerspace, it is easiest to do so during one of our regular meetings which we hold every Tuesday. During this time the room is open and visitors are welcome.

Alternatively, you can visit one of our public events. These take place irregularly, usually in the form of workshops or talks, and are announced on the public mailing list and on our website.

If you already know someone from the Chaostreff, you can ask them to show you the Hackerspace. All members are allowed to bring third-parties into the Hackerspace.

If you in Bern, but can not manage to visit any of our usual events, please contact us directly. Just send an email to info [at] chaostreffbern [dot] ch and with a bit of luck someone will be able to show you the Hackerspace.
