About us

The „Chaostreff Dortmund“ is a hackerspace run by friendly people from Dortmund and the cities around. We are located north of the city centre of Dortmund, a rather large town at the east of the „Ruhrgebiet“ in Germany.

In regular Friday meetings we discuss the best way to take over the world, but most of the time we are talking about technology, science and society, and building related projects like microcontroller-powered things, geeky software and all kinds of other funny or useful things that come to our minds.

We are always excited to meet new people who are just like us – or maybe very different, which does not matter – so please feel free to join us, for a talk, a cold Club Mate (!) or just to say „Hi!“. Our regular meetings normally start at about 19:00 (7pm) every Friday at Braunschweiger Strasse 22, 44145 Dortmund Mitte, 2nd floor. You also might visit #ccc.do on hackint to check if the meeting really takes place (please just ask in the channel if the channel topic doesn’t help) and you don’t visit our location in vain – because under rare circumstances everybody is lazy and our doors remain closed.

Please note that we don’t offer overnight accommodation. We sometimes make exceptions in the event of emergencies (e.g. you missed the last train) or if people from distant hacker spaces want to pay us a visit. However, we ask you to arrange the time of your visit in advance. In case we agree on an overnight stay, it is limited to one night.

Can’t join us on location? No problem: most of us hang out in IRC #ccc.do on hackint, and we also have an old-fashioned mailinglist. Oh, and you can read about our great projects and some of the planning fails on our wiki.
