I just booked my remaining nights at the Renaissance (26-29 May, 2007),
which were unavailable a month ago. No doubt they will be unavailable
again soon, so book now! They have a really easy cancellation policy
(which is partly why they get all booked up), but it makes it easy for
you to change your mind and bail out.
Though there have been nay-sayers on the message board, the Renaissance
still gets my vote as THE place to stay. The community seems to focus
on it, the lobby is always some kind of gathering / socializing point
that often includes members of various bands, the elegance is a perfect
compliment to the fine gothic styling, and it's stumbling distance from
the Moritz Bastei. What else could you want?
WGT 2006 was an absolute blast! ...with significant exception of Ian &
Shey's absence... =:-(
By the way, I notice that the list of 2006 photo links are not up on
Feel free to add a link to my page when they are (which I had some
hesitations about previously).
Bis nächste mal!
