Where to stay
SalsaNor’s Rueda Congress have prepared three accomodation options for you in Roskilde during your stay.
Roskilde offers of course other alternatives for accomodation if you prefer to look up other availabilities at your own choice.
- Low-Budget option - sleeping at venue Kildegården (limited number of places)
For dancers competing in the Rueda de Casino WADF World Championship 2015 it is possible to choose the low-budget option of sleeping on the floor in two of the venue halls (male and female rooms). This is only for contestants and not for regular congress participants. You need to bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping pad for the floor. There are bathrooms, showers and simple kitchen facilities. We will provide a plain breakfast included in the overnight rate. Sleeping gear has to be stored in a storage room during the day in order to use the floor for dancing (the room must be cleared by 09:00).
Price: NOK 100,- (approx. €12) per person per night including a plain breakfast (sandwich, fruit, tea/coffee, fruit juice and milk). Contestants that are participating in SalsaNor’s Rueda Congress may stay until Sunday 6/9.
Your team contact may request this option with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To be paid in advance. This is a limited option, offered only for a limited period.

Roskilde hosts some of the country’s most distinguished sights, such as the Cathedral, the Viking ships, and the Land of Legends. Other charming sights include the old shops, small narrow squares, courtyards, and cafés. However, Roskilde is probably most well known for the giant rock festival, ‘the Roskilde Festival’.
