How to reach us

Accommodation - Aachen

Participants of the workshop will stay in the historical city of Aachen. For over a thousand years, Aachen has witnessed the most inspiring and dramatic moments of European history.

Located directly on the borders of Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium, the city enjoys a unique mixture of various cultures in the heart of Europe. The cathedral of Aachen is the city's landmark and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As parts of the social programme (including the conference dinner) will take place in Aachen, attendees will have a good opportunity to get to know the city at first hand.
