Conference Venue

Morning Bus Shuttle


This year our conference venue is further away from the participant accommodation. Therefore, we organised a bus transfer from your accommodation to the venue in the mornings of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (30 March - 1 April). All participants are asked to arrive at the respective bus gathering point on schedule!

At baxpax downtown Hostel Hotel:

8:15 gathering for bus transfer
8:30 departure
in front of the hostel entrance on Ziegelstraße

At NH Hotel Friedrichstraße:

8:45 bus departure
in Planckstraße, just around the corner from the hotel main entrance

It could be rather inconvenient to travel from the accommodation to the conference venue on your own in the mornings as you might lose time changing trains several times. The conference program will commence punctually. In order not to miss out on parts of the program or to be late for events you are involved in, please make sure you are on time for the bus transfer.
