You organize your own trip. We meet in Le Beaujeu and make the trip to Durbuy Music for 3 full days. This can be done walking (15min) or by car. Personal instruments, amplifiers and other equipment can stay at Durbuy Music. There is also a lot of standard equipment available in the studios. For example, you certainly don't have to drag a drum kit back and forth.

1. Public transport

The nearest train station is Bomal/Barvaux. Need a ride from the station to Durbuy? Check if there is a free spot in one of the cars on the carpool forum and contact the driver to ask if he can pick you up at the station!

2. Carpooling

Via our carpool forum, you can get in touch with fellow participants to carpool.

Please note: this forum gives WISPER the opportunity to agree to carpool, but there is no guarantee that everyone wille find a place. After all, the efficiency of this forum depends on the number of drivers wishing to take passengers with them.


You are welcome on Monday from 5 p.m. at the Gite to set up. The course coördinator will be there to welcome you, show you your room and answer any questions you may have.

The beds in multiple rooms are assigned based on the order in which registrations are received, not based on gender. We take into account special requests mentioned in the comment field when registering.

The first meal of the week is served on Monday evening at 7 pm. The first session starts that evening at 8pm. We check out on Friday morning, then another luncheon is provided at the studio complex. We conclude with a small visit to Durbuy.

1. Meals

Every morning there is a French breakfast in the Gite: baguette, jam, yogurt and granola. So no cheese, meat or fruit. If you would like that with your breakfast, you can shop in one of Durbuy's department stores. Lunch and diner are provided by the catering of Durbuy Music.

Do you eat vegetarian, gluten-free or lactose-free? The catering can take this into account. Be sure to mention this as a remark when registering or send an email to vita@wisper.be as soon as possible.

Do you follow another specific diet? Then we ask you to bring your own 'basic package'.

2. The rooms

Sheets and towels are provided. There is no lock on the room doors. Please take responsibility for your own valuables.

3. The Gite

A sauna and outdoor shower are available. In the evening there is a self-service bar with drinks provided by WISPER.

Payment in the bar is preferably done via payconiq. For those who prefer to pay by cash or bank transfer, we will certainly find a solution on the spot. In the Durbuy Music studios you can always get something to drink from the fridges, you pay on Thursday evening at Durbuy Music.

4. Internet

There is WIFI both in the studios and the gite. Keep in mind that there is less network coverage around the studios.

5. What you need to pack

Swimwear, sunscreen, hiking boots for those who want to explore the area. Mosquito spray and your own first aid.

6. Durbuy

Although Durbuy has an extensive tourist offer, we strongly recommend participants to make full use of the studio time, in this beautiful place in the green. An inspiring walk in the neighborhood is certainly possible. After concluding on Friday, we relax together with a visit to Durbuy.

7. Pets

Pets are unfortunately not allowed at the studios or in the Gite.
