Conference and Travel information

The conference venue, Hotel Müggelsee Berlin, is located on the shores of the Großer Müggelsee lake amidst a nature reserve in the neighbourhood of Köpenick, Berlin. The generous complex stretches over woodland and a large park. The hotel has private access to the Großer Müggelsee, one of Berlin's most beautiful and largest lakes. Walking, cycling, swimming, canoeing - the area around Hotel Müggelsee offers plenty of recreational opportunities, whilst the hotel has bowling alleys, a jacuzzi and various saunas for both fun and relaxation. One of the main reasons we are meeting is for our members and guests to have a chance to spend time together in person. As such, a programme of social activities will be offered.
