Hikers will find lots of hills and might want to bring suitable footwear with them. Especially for runners Prof. Dr. Ralf Hiptmair provided us with a collection of running routes. For longer trips, we also have a few bikes to lend. At the basement of the library building there is a fitness room with several exercise machines and pieces of sports equipment, table tennis and tabletop soccer (please enter only with sports shoes resistant to abrasion). Moreover, there is a lounge area with a billiard table and a music room with a Steinway grand piano and several other instruments.

You find a selection of fiction books on the first floor of the guest house. Board and card games and tourist information (museums, sightseeing in the area) can be found opposite the guest office in the guest house. We recommend a visit to the MiMa museum on Minerals and Mathematics, that the Institute runs in Oberwolfach together with the village and the minerals association. See for details.
