 Osmanische Herberge

Das Sufi-Zentrum in der Eifel

Rinner Straße 15

53925 Kall-Sötenich

Insha'Allah, these directions for travel from a previous year may prove helpful to those wishing to attend:

Easy Jet from London Gatwick to Cologne / Bonn airport. (Prices can be as low as £29.99 if booked well in advance) and the flight itself is approx. 1 hr.

Airport onwards is two train journeys - 

The first is a brief 20 min trip to Cologne Central Station.

The second is the trip to Kall itself which lasts just over an hour and I must say was one of the most enjoyable I've had - as it incorporated beautiful German Countryside and mountains and hills.

On arrival to Kall Station, you can either be picked up by the mureeds from the dergha (if warned in advance) or as in my case call a local taxi firm - the numbers of which are posted directly opposite the station. The car journey is approx. 10 minutes to where the dergha is located.

Osmanische Herberge - or Ottoman Inn is the contemporary name given to the dergha, which is located in the picturesque village of Kall, nestled in the Eifel Mountains - in the North Rhine - West Phalia region of Germany. There are separate sleeping areas for men and women, as well as the large auditorium and mosque should sleep areas become limited.

There is a hotel and an Ottoman Cafe where mureeds and other guests can stay for a modest fee- (please check the website for updates). However, mureeds need to be aware that these facilities are only available during the Sufi Soul Music festival as well as the monthly big zikrs. The dergha's only kitchen is located at the back of the building and is open throughout the year for tea, coffee and other basics.
