Let us welcome you on Thursday, March 28, to the Wikimedia Summit by joining us for dinner and drinks at the conference venue Mercure Hotel Berlin Tempelhof (first floor of the conference area). Take the opportunity to connect with all the conference participants in an offline setting and to enjoy a refreshment after having travelled (all the way) to Berlin.

Dinner & thematic/regional/language-specific meetups at the WMDE office (Fri)[edit]

On Friday evening we will have a change of scene and meet for dinner at the WMDE office in Kreuzberg. As in the last years, we would like to encourage conversation and self-organized thematic/regional/language-specific meetups. Therefore, a few meeting rooms will be made available at our office. Are you interested in organizing or joining a meetup? Then please indicate your interest here.

You can find the office at Tempelhofer Ufer 23-24, 10963 Berlin. The next U-Bahn station is Möckernbrücke (U1, U7). Public transport tickets will be provided.

IMPORTANT: Please bring your name badge to the WMDE office.

WMSUMMIT party at Villa Neukölln (Sat)[edit]

It takes 7 minutes to walk from Mercure Hotel Berlin Tempelhof to Villa Neukölln.

IMPORTANT: Your name badge will allow you to enter the party venue. Don’t forget it!

Farewell dinner at the conference venue (Sun)[edit]

On Sunday, March 31, we get together one last time for dinner at the conference venue to chat and to unwind after three days of intensively working, discussing, and thinking together.
