The Location

LaerCon takes place at the Rittergut Haus Laer in Bochum, an old beautiful water castle.
This year’s New Years Party we will take place in the middle / medium sized room (“Großer Festsaal”) again (like the previous years).


The manor has a (limited) number of cozy and very unique rooms / suites, which means you can snuggle up in a real bed after the party. Please note the following:

The rooms must be booked through us (not via Haus Laer), the accommodation costs are not included in the entrance fee.

The entrance fee must be paid to Nightfox (bank transfer or Paypal) in advance, the costs for the rooms have to be paid at your arrival (at the owners of Haus Laer, not Nightfox). Please note that at Haus Laer you can only pay in cash (preferred). If possible, please bring the exact amount of cash.


The room costs for 2023 are:

Suite for 2 persons (21) – 120 € (early/late extra nights are + 55 € / night)
Suite for 3 persons (2) – 160 € (early/late extra nights are + 70 € / night)
