Welcome to the website for the European Go Congress - Bonn 2012!

The congress takes place in the municipal hall of Bonn-Bad Godesberg from 21 July to 4 August 2012.

The European Go Congress brings together up to 1000 go players from over 30 nations, especially Europe and East Asia, for two weeks to play many exciting tournaments in Go, the oldest board game of the world. Professional go players from Japan, China and Korea come to the Congress and give go comments, play simultaneous games and give insight into their culture and their life as professional go players. The Go Congress is a festival for go players of all ages and playing strengths, amateurs and professionals, with children tournaments, single, pair, and team tournaments, with lectures, exhibitions, and extensive leisure activities. The European top go players play the European championship at the Go Congress.

We are looking forward to welcoming you, whether you are coming by yourself, with your family or with your friends, whether you want to play, study go, visit the Rhineland, or just enjoy the friendly atmosphere!
