Training Rooms and Locations


Driving to Oberspitzenbach:

from the highway take the exit “Freiburg Nord”, and after that the B294 towards Waldkirch/ Freudenstadt. Remain on the B294 as you drive through the tunnel next to Waldkirch. The next small town after the tunnel is Niederwinden. Drive through this, and look out for the sign marked Katzenmoos/Oberspitzenbach as you enter the next town, Oberwinden. This road marked Katzenmoos/Oberspitzenbach turns off to your left, just before the B294 turns to its right. Follow this smaller road through Katzenmoos and on up the hill. Just before Oberspitzenbach follow the sign marked Siegelau, immediately after which you will already see the Oberspitzenbach church-tower. Directly beside the church stands the former school house. If using a sat-nav, please type in: 79261 Gutach, Kapellenweg.


Oberspitzenbach is a little hamlet in the Upper Elz Valley, 25 minutes north-east of Freiburg. Mechtild and Bruno Zühlke have been living and working in the former village school house in Oberspitzenbach since 1998. This is also where the office for the Jojo-Center is located. Since intensive rebuilding of the house in spring 2004, courses have been able to take place more intensively. The house can offer participants a large and delightful practice room, an idyllic living area in the renovated attic, which groups can use as an accommodation option, a sauna, and much, much more. An ideal place for working, but also for relaxing and enjoying nature.

This is where the clown courses take place, alongside the longer-duration Circus Education qualifications


The courses we have on offer take place at the following locations. The two year further training course takes place in Freiburg on the premises of Circus Harlekin and the neighboring Youth Center (in German: Haus der Jugend). At our Hamburg location we offer the Foundation Training Course in Circus Education on Circus Abrax Kadabrax's premises. The shorter clowning course and the longer clowning qualification both take place in Oberspitzenbach near Freiburg, south-west Germany.

Abrax Kadabrax

From the fall 2014, our Foundation Training Course has been running at the premises of Circus Abrax Kadabrax in the Osdorf district of Hamburg. Various rooms are available to us for teaching and training: a sports hall, a movement and gymnastic room, the Bornheide Community Center (German: Bürgerhaus Bornheide) and the big circus top. During our breaks we can use the delightful circus café built in an old circus wagon.

From May 2015 onwards, matching the start of our 21st training year, we will be moving our training center location to Freiburg-in-Breisgau, south-west Germany. The courses will be taking place on the premises of Circus Harlekin and the neighboring Youth Center (in German: Haus der Jugend). This location places several large movement rooms and a small sports hall at our disposal. The Youth Center’s inner-city location is convenient, and easy to reach by public transport. There are several good-value accommodation options for participants within walking distance.
