Horn Centre also offers the highest level of further education. The idea being, that new techniques which originate from research activities are then implemented in the practical work of the conservator-restorers. To do so an educational structure is needed. This is offered at Horn.

At the moment the courses being offered are intended to further the expertise of colleagues.
Later there will be courses aimed mainly at conveying research results. Courses offered will be at the highest level, and will not be repeated. The courses are all intended for further professional development.

We are undergoing a reorganisation - all courses wil be newly sheduled.


All Courses start at 10 am on the first day and finish at 5 pm on the last course day.

All courses are confirmed 1 mounth before they take place. In case the course will not be fully booked, so far registered participants will be informed 4 weeks before the course that it will not take place.

Special material will be brought by the course lecturer and might cause extra costs.

Information about the rooms is provided 3 days before the course, in case you wish for this information earlier, please do contact Mrs. Wieland actively, she will be happy to help you.


We explicitely draw your kind attention to the fact, that it cannot be excluded that you cut, poisen or burn etc. yourself during practical sessions by your own fault. Each participant must take precausions i.e. have basic knowledge in handling tools respectively chemicals and an insurence him/her self before the course starts. The Verein Buchstadt Horn does not take over any guarantee or responsibility.

Accommodation during the course within the building (guesthouse) is obligatory and  included in the price. The guesthouse offeres a kitchen where participants can prepare their own meals and the close connection to the venue is of advantage, but there is no TV and no telefone in the rooms. Internet is available in the rooms with a direct connection.

In case you would like a hotel, which is 5 minutes walk from the venue, but provides all facilities a hotel normaly has, we ask you to express this explicitely, so we can make reservation and the extra billing for you.
