Dear Go players,
welcome to the 65th European Go Congress! Two intensive weeks await you, during which you can completely immerse yourself in the world of Go – and in between for refreshment in the Cospudener See.
Go is not a simple board game, but an art form that both challenges our thinking and sparks our creativity. At the EGC, people from Europe and all over the world connect through the language of Go.
Thanks also to the Rudolf-Hildebrand-School, which made its rooms available to us, to all the sponsors and to all the big and small supporters and friends.
I wish you all an eventful time full of exciting games, stimulating conversations and lasting memories. May this EGC bring us closer together, not only as players but also as friends!
