The Tiny House Festival offers you the opportunity to talk to exhibitors, manufacturers, service providers and associations. But also with other interested people.

We have put together a diverse program of lectures and workshops. Let yourself be inspired by the experiences of the Tiny House community. Ask your questions and get answers:

  • What do you have to consider for the Tiny House project? In the planning but also the implementation for self-builders.
  • What help is there in terms of financing and floor space?
  • What is life in a Tiny House really like?
  • What motivates other community members to take this step?

lectures

lectures

The "godfather" of the German Tiny House movement, Hanspeter Brunner, began building Tiny Houses back in 2013, when the topic was still virtually unknown in Germany. He found inspiration in Jay Shafer, who started the trend in the USA. His thesis that "real quality of life does not depend on the accumulation of things" has since met with ever greater approval. In addition to (do-it-yourself) experience reports, the lecture program offers many informative presentations on topics such as sustainability, pitch search, efficient construction methods, but also literature presentations.

workshops

workshops

Our Tiny House Forum goes into depth: "Which Tiny House type am I" or "Tiny House planning in five steps" were the workshop topics in 2019.

Accompanying the lectures, which are open to all, the workshops offer a small group size and thus the opportunity for intensive exchange and deep learning experience. In 2023, we are planning on preparing exciting lectures for you!

Of course, you are welcome to approach our exhibitors directly with your individual questions.

In our Media Lounge, you will find numerous informative magazines to take home free of charge, as well as space to exchange ideas with other interested parties. Feel free to drop by!
