20th European Symposium on Fluorine Chemistry
Event LocationsWELCOME RECEPTION: KRONPRINZENPALAIS
The Kronprinzenpalais (Crown Prince’s Palace) is a former Royal Prussian residence on Unter den Linden boulevard in the historic centre of Berlin. It was built in 1663 and later renovated in Neoclassical style. At the beginning of the 20th century, it was home to the modern art collection of the National Gallery. In 1990, the German Reunification Treaty was signed in this building.
We will revive the historical use as a gallery and present you with an exhibition: a combination of art and science.
CONFERENCE DINNER: WASSERWERK
The waterworks served as the main pumping station of the independent sewage system in Wilmersdorf and was built in 1903-06 as part of an industrial plant, most of which was destroyed in the war.
The representative, light-flooded „cathedral of labor“ is strongly characterized by the large round-arched windows and the gable roof held by steel girders.
Following the construction of a new pumping station in the immediate vicinity, the old hall was extensively renovated and reopened as the „Eventlocation Wasserwerk“ in October 2001. The original industrial charm was preserved, and so you can dine, meet and celebrate between pumps.
