Arrival and Camp-Location
The System Change Camp 2023 will take place in the Georgengarten in Hannover. There are beautiful meadow areas with occasional large trees for shade and several swimming opportunities within 5 km. Here you can find out how to get to the camp:
Arrival by public transport
If you travel by train to Hannover main station, go from there to the stop “Leibniz Universität”. You can take the bus 500 to “Steintor” and change there to streetcar 4 or you can walk from the station for about 4 minutes through the beautiful city center of Hannover to “Kröpke” and take the U5 (direction Stöcken) or U4 (direction Garbsen) to the stop “Leibniz Universität”.
Arrival by bike
If you come by bike from the south or north, follow the Leine-Heide cycle path. Attention, the Dornröschenbrücke is closed, you can cross the river with the Westschnellweg.
If you are coming by bike from the west/NRW, we recommend a route along the Weser to Porta Westfalica and from here via Bad Nenndorf.
Arrival by car
If you arrive by car, “Georgengarten” can be the destination of your route planner. Inform yourself beforehand about parking possibilities and pay attention to information from the camp. Important information for all who arrive with a vehicle in which they want to spend the night: There will unfortunately be no space for campers, RVs or the like on the camp grounds this year. Please find your own parking space in the vicinity of the camp.
Sleeping places for all
We would like to organise sleeping places at this year’s System Change Camp in Hanover in solidarity. Not all people have the possibility to organise a place to sleep themselves or to bring a tent with them. We therefore ask all people who have the possibility to do so to bring additional tents and to lend them on site. The contact point for this is our info tent.
At the same time, we are still looking for places to sleep in and around Hanover, in order to accommodate speakers and people who would otherwise not be able to participate in the camp. If you have a free room in your flat, shared apartment (WG), house project etc. during the period or part of it, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (PGP). If you can, please write directly where and how much space you have, if you have animals, how barrier-free it is and in which period you have space. Thank you very much!

The Georgengarten was named after a Hanoverian king (monarchy 👎). Around the corner are the Welfenschloss, which now houses the university, and the Herrenhäuser Gardens, a strictly symmetrical Baroque garden complex. An avenue runs through the Georgengarten, connecting the city center and the Herrenhäuser Gardens.
