Welcome to the jSpirit Unconference!

Spirits, Ski & Java

Jan 25th to 26th, 2020

jSpirit is a community-organized, non-profit Java unconference in the Bavarian alps. Since early 2018 we’re down for Spirits, Ski & Java! The price includes the venue, food, party, distillery tour and whisky, gin, and rum tasting. How does that sound do you?


jSpirit is the first Java (un)conference ever being held in a distillery ‐ at least to our knowledge. And it’s not just any distillery, it’s Europe’s most modern distillery: Lantenhammer Erlebnisdestillerie Hausham!

By the way: we are renting the entire distillery: lunch will be served in the main storage depot between all the whisky, gin, rum and schnapps barrels. And we can hold sessions everywhere, even right by the stills!


jSpirit takes place in Hausham, near 2 of Bavaria’s largest ski resorts: Sudelfeld and Spitzingsee. Enjoy 32km of slopes and recently updated ski lifts.

Go figure it out! 😉


jSpirit is a community event, solely funded by its attendees. The venue registration fee includes:

    • Use of the entire venue and all its facilities
    • Catering for 2 days
    • Party on Saturday evening including a tours of the distillery plus Gin seminar


Anything else is not included and up to you to pay for yourself. However, we are currently in negotiations for discount rates at nearby hotels – stay tuned!


We’ve decided that the Karma Bavaria (Kirchbichlweg 18, 83727 Schliersee) is the unofficial jSpirit hotel. Of course, everyone is free to stay where they would like, however, it makes sense to choose a single hotel to facilitate ride sharing and logistics.


Lantenhammer is offering us our very own limited series of jSpirit branded spirits. If you’d like to have one-to-many bottles (of course you do) please tick the appropriate boxes in the registration form.
