The event will take place at a beautiful place called Backagården. It’s located outside of the small town Höör, 50 km northeast of Malmö (beware not to confuse it with other establishments also named Backagården, or with Backagården in their name!). It’s surrounded by nature, a lake and the beautiful Scaanian landscape.
Backagården is fully accessible by public transport. You don’t need to purchase public transport tickets in advance. We will soon provide more details on how to get there.
The full venue covers a wide area and offers a range of options for games and sports. It has several workshop rooms and large rooms for community gatherings.
