Practical Information

The castle

The event will take place in the stunning Czocha Castle. The venue is also a hotel, which means that you will live, eat, sleep and play within this breathtaking location. Explore this XIV century building, discover all its secrets.

We will rent the castle exclusively for this event, so you will have a unique opportunity to play in the stunning interiors - elegant chambers, impressive halls and mysterious cellars are only some of the ravishing rooms that you will have a chance to explore.

You will be sleeping in hotel rooms located in the castle. 96 spots will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note that the castle is not accessible to individuals with special needs, such as those requiring wheelchair access.


Buffet meals will be provided by the excellent castle restaurant. We will also make sure to provide you with plenty of drinks and snacks throughout the event.


Czocha castle is located 2,5 h from Berlin. You will have the opportunity to buy a ticket for direct transport from Berlin to the castle (and back to Berlin again).

We can also help you with arranging transport from other places.


The team behind this event will be provided by the Polish brand Turbolarp. The team will take on board people who have previous experience in organizing EU4-themed LAN parties in Polish castles and online.

Paradox Interactive will be our partner and support during the event, and the team of HOI IV will join us on site. Even though they are not strictly speaking organizers of the event, nothing of this will be possible without their help and patronage.
