There will be an opportunity to meet other delegates and to get a first “taste of Berlin” at a local Beer Garden close to the Conference Centre. You can enjoy a grilled sausage with salad or a burger and drink a fresh beer, soft drink or juice.    


Thursday June 29th 2017

For the conference banquet we invite you to a special event, a 3-hour boat trip on the river Spree through the heart of Berlin. You will not only have a sightseeing tour but will also enjoy a three-course dinner and some refreshing drinks during a light summer evening.

The tour will start in the west close to Schloss Charlottenburg and pass many impressive bridges and important historical places such as “Schloss Belevue”  (residence of the German president), the Parliament building “Reichstag”, the Museum Island or the Berlin Cathedral Church. Moreover you will see also the more modern Berlin, the “House of the Cultures of the world”, the government district with Federal Chancellery (office of Angela Merkel) and the parliament office buildings and the TV-tower. In the former eastern industrial port, now a booming media hotspot, the ship will have a turn and you may have the opportunity to enjoy the sights again from another perspective. On its way, the ship will twice pass a lock, a really interesting experience.


The cost for attending these events is detailed on the Registration page. The number of places available is limited.

If you have any special dietary requirements for either event please contact Dr Ulrike Einhorn-Stoll by email:
