A CalDAV server has been set up to facilitate room reservation. All KPH members have read access, write access must be approved by Michael Distler or Harald Merkel AFTER FIRST READ ACCESS. Each approved user has full access, can delete in the malicious case also reservations of others (the log file will betray the user however).

Please always note your name in the comment field of new entries for queries.

Only the rooms, administered by us, can be reserved here:

  • Seminar room 2
  • meeting room
  • Seminar room in the new building (red salon)

Unfortunately Thunderbird is needed for this. If you are using the ZDV server, you can select Thunderbird from the ZDV apps, otherwise you can download the program from, then continue as shown in "Setup under Linux (Thunderbird).
For MS-Outlook there is currently no reasonable solution known, if someone finds something, please let me know.
