Visit Places
Berlin simply offers too many sights, activities and experiences to list here. Therefore, we refer you at this point to other pages to look around and decide what to do depending on your interests.

First time in Berlin and interested in the classics?

Start with the Brandenburg Gate, take a walk through the government quarter along the Spree river, discover the Museum Island and the boulevard Unter den Linden – you’ll find it familiar, this is where the conference venue is!
More suggestions can be found here.

Fancy a visit to the museum?

Close to the conference venue is the Museum Island. With its five museums it is the largest museum ensemble in the world and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But also other museums and exhibitions throughout Berlin await your visit, including the Bud Spencer Museum or the Spy Museum.

Hot day, too much city? Discover Berlin’s green side!

What Central Park is to New York, Tiergarten is to Berlin: landscaped gardens, large open spaces, and winding paths that lead past picturesque scenes. Gardens of the World in Berlin Marzahn-Hellersdorf, meanwhile, features themed gardens from Europe and Asia, while the Grunewald in the western side of the city offers a relaxing place for walks. From here, enjoy a wonderful view of Havel and Wannsee, or see the remains of a former listening station during the Cold War on Teufelsberg.
