A co-created kink-friendly and family-friendly weekend
Next: Dec 16-18th 2022
A community weekend at Spitzmühle
The beautiful Spitzmühle just outside of Berlin is ours – for a whole weekend. We will gather in this magical sex-positive space with its direct access to a lake, outside hot tub, sauna, workshop space and spacious dining room to explore, play, cuddle, silliness, kinkyness and all the good things we like.
This is a weekend for adults and your children are also welcome. All parents who bring kids are invited to create something special and interesting for their kids, e.g. a sleepover in one of the rooms.
OUTLINE OF THE WEEKEND
We will have a communal dinner around 8pm on friday. It would be ideal if you can be there for the dinner. Afterwards, we can enjoy free flow in the play space, the sauna, and the dining room can be used for cuddles and conversations.
Depending on the group size, there might be organized activities. During the day the main room will be family-friendly. The Bootshaus will be the adult play room. Depending when the kids go to bed, we aim that from 9pm, the main room will be kids-free, also.
On Sunday, we have breakfast and an afternoon lunch, there is usually still time for play and socialising. After that we will clean up together.

WHO IS IT FOR
We invite people personally and everybody gets to bring guests if they like. This event is for friends, family, lovers of humans who feel connected to Spitzmühle.
WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
We believe in co-created spaces for community. Spitzmühle is a special place. It is rented for a variety of groups almost all year around. This weekend is suppose to bring people together in a non-hierarchical way, make space for free flow, enjoying each other, and not have a scheduled plan and a workshop program. Usually when we come to Spitzmühle, we are in roles of participant, organizer, teacher or facilitator, cooks or assistants. At these weekends we wish to let go of these roles as much as we can, and enjoy the space as humans that are coming together to share time, meals, play, child-care, cuddles and more.

How to get to Spitzmühle?
It is about an hour from Berlin by S-bahn. Closest train station = S-Bahn Hegermühle (S5, direction Straußberg). If you want to take a taxi, it makes sense to either (i) go to Hegermühle and pre-order one or (ii) go to Straußberg. The train station is bigger and taxis are usually waiting there.

Yes, we will have brunch and one cooked meal a day. Per brunch/meal there will be a volunteer group responsible to prepare it. Philipp will buy the food.
Dinner around 19:00/20.00
Breakfast/Brunch buffet from when someone starts to afternoon

There might be some snacks, like a bowl of fresh fruit during the day and possibly some snack food at night depending on the kitchen crew or snacks coordinators. If this is a concern for you then please bring some extra snacks that are suitable for your diet or step up as the snacks coordinator for the weekend.
What about Coffee and Tea?
There will be Coffee, hot water and a selection of non-caffeinated Tea available throughout the day. This is included in the ticket price.
What about Alcohol and soft drinks?
There will be some limited beer, wine and soft drinks available at the venue against reasonable-ish prices (probably around 2/2,5 eur for a Softdrink/beer). If you have a need/wish for a certain beverage (Club Mate for example 😉 ), the only way to make sure it’ll be there is if you bring it yourself. Also, if you have a nice bottle of booze that you’d like to share, you’re welcome to bring this but keep in mind that it’s not going to be a super boozy weekend and we are all expected to be responsive to our surroundings.
What about Intoxication and substance use?
Intoxication is a personal choice. Please keep in mind the environment you are in, communicate with others, and be aware this is not a party weekend. Being intoxicated past the point of being able to give or ask for consent creates a less safe environment.
Will food be Vegan / Gluten-free? Will my allergies be taken into account?
The food will be Vegan & Vegetarian, Spitzmuhle is a meat-free venue.
If you have noted your allergies in the sign-up form, your allergies will be known in the kitchen (Otherwise let us know ASAP, please don’t wait until we’re at the venue.) and the kitchen volunteers will take as much care as they can to include yummy foods that are suitable for you. Keep in mind that your friends in the kitchen are not professionals and may need your help to make sure you are nourished and well. The kitchen volunteers may ask you to participate in the process because you understand alternatives that suit your dietary restrictions much better than they do.
When will the sauna and hot tub be available?
The sauna will be on when we turn it on. We’ll figure it out together on the weekend.
With the hot tub, it depends on who takes the initiative to fill and heat up the hot tub.
It takes some time to empty, clean, fill, and heat up the hot tub so it needs volunteers to step up to make this happen.
Is there an outside fireplace?
Yes there is. Once it gets dark, we can light it up and sit around the campfire all night. Also this depends on who steps up to take care of the fire.
I want to offer a workshop/activity. Who do I need to talk to?
Depending how big the group is, we will coordinate activities a bit more. But we will mainly organize is on the spot. You are welcome to talk to Philipp, or Cosima before hand, if you have questions around this.
When does the event end?
We will share a last leftovers meal Sunday at 15:00 and will then clean up together, you should expect to leave Spitzmuhle between 16:00 and 18:00 on Sunday evening.
Can I leave the venue early?
Yes, if you have arranged to leave early, this is possible. Keep in mind that there are helping hands needed till the end so the more people stay to help clean up, the easier it is for all of us.
