Once you're inside the courtyard, please keep an eye out for entrance "D" on the right-hand side.

For navigation on Google Maps, search for "Niehler Str. 101." You'll find the entrance to the Clouth 104 building's courtyard on the opposite side of the street. The official address is CLOUTH 104 | Niehler Str 104 Cologne , 2nd / upper floor Entrance "D."

If you're coming by car, there's a parking lot directly under the clouth 104 building (Entrance Seekabel Str.2). You can also mostly find a free parking spot at the Seekabel Strasse or the streets around the cloud 104 building. 

After the class, we often gather at a nearby pub for some socializing if you're interested.
