Arriving to Sweden, options of accomodation before the ridef.

When you arrive on the Swedish west coast there are two good options for overnight stays before RIDEF starts:

Preridef in Gothenburg

Stay free at the Freinetschool “Bild & Form” in central Gothenburg.

One week before the RIDEF: 14 july – 20 july

It is quite simple accommodation. You are sleeping on mattresses in the classrooms. There is a kitchen where participants can make lunch and dinner. Only one shower, but there are nice bath houses in the central town. You can prepare your workshop. There are computers and iPads to borrow. WiFi clearly.

The Swedish organizers will be there too. They will help you and give advice on nice excursions. The school is close to lot of nice places in central Gothenburg . You can easily walk to most of the things you want to see. You can go by bike to the ferries and come to the archipilago outside the city. We will offer bikes.

From 30 July– 6 August we offer the same concept  as the pre-ridef in Gothenburg.


Staying extra nights in Ljungskile before RIDEF

Hostel in Ljungskile ( = on the ridef place)

From 17 – 21 july

The Ljungskile Folkhogskola offers 40% discount on the rooms 4 days before RIDEF.  Hostel rooms. No shower or toilet on the room.  It means 48 Euro for a double room per night.

During these days one can explore the surroundings. There is a nice hiking trail east with wild nature. West 10 minutes walk from the school is the bathing bay in the sea bay with sauna, kayak rental and sailing school. Both small sailboats and big sailboats. Nice restaurants and open countryside with horse farms and sheep farms. There are archipelago boats arriving at the main pier. Out in the bay you can learn how to harvest blue mussels and cook good food on the newly harvested. In Sweden it is free to fish in the sea and to pick berries and mushrooms in the woods. There are good opportunities for this in the surroundings around Ljungskile.

You can book on your own by writing to: The staff at the hostel can help you contact sailing schools etc.
