Andernach 2016 problem chess meeting

The traditional Andernach Fairy Chess Meeting will take place from May 05 to May 08, 2016 (as usual the long weekend starting with Ascension Day).

As last year we will meet at Ratskeller (Hochstraße 33, D-56626 Andernach); this is Zdravko Maslar‘s former restaurant Balkan Pic, where he had organised the meeting for decades.

As usual you should arrange your accomodation for yourself, but if necessary you may ask bernd ellinghoven (mail: be.fee(at)t-online.de) or Zdravko Maslar (Karolingerstr. 76, D-56626 Andernach, tel +49 2632 1577) for support.


For political reasons Zdravko came to Germany from former Yugoslavia in the early 1970th and established a restaurant in Andernach, some 80 kilometers south of Cologne at the Rhine river.
At the Wiesbaden WCCC in 1974 he met Peter Kniest, the publisher and general editor of feenschach. In their discussion the idea arose to have a fairy chess meeting, and Zdravko agreed to host it in his restaurant. The very first meeting was in spring 1975 at the Ascension Day weekend — so started the tradition of the Andernach meetings. Since 1975 Zdravko steadily organizes this meeting (now together with bernd ellinghoven) and hosted it in his restaurant until his retirement shortly before 2000.
