Where can I make a phone call?

You will find phone booths on each floor of the two buildings, for example behind the stairs on your left in the main entrance hall of the guest house or beside the lavatories in the conference and library building. The phone booths provide ethernet connectors to let you use skype with the aid of your laptop.
