Conference Dinner

For the Conference Dinner we will take you to one of the most exciting places in the region – the phaeno in Wolfsburg. This exceptional building was created by star architect and Pritzker Prize winner Zaha Hadid. You will experience “one of the dozen most important modern works of architecture in the world“ (The Guardian) and have dinner right in the middle of what during opening hours is a scene for hundreds of fascinating interactive exhibits that let visitors from all over the globe experience the world of natural sciences and technology.

For Friday we offer two excursions you can chose from during registration. One excursion will be to Wolfsburg, visiting Volkswagen factory and Autostadt. The other excursion will take you to Goslar, visiting its historic city centre and the Mines of Rammelsberg.

The Autostadt is a visitor attraction adjacent to the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg. It combines a wide range of activities for automobile fans, art and culture connoisseurs, gourmets and people who love architecture and design. On this excursion you will go on a journey into the world of mobility. Situated in 28 hectares of parkland, architecture, design and nature provide the framework for its many and diverse attractions – including a factory tour: the panorama train will take you right into the heart of automobile production where you will be able to see how Volkswagen cars are made.

This excursion will take you to the medieval old town of Goslar and the Mines of Rammelsberg – both UNESCO World Heritage sites. Goslar has an over-1000-year history. For centuries it was the favoured seat of government in northern Germany and at the same time a centre of Christianity, referred to as the “Rome of the North”. Still today the many crooked, narrow, cobble-stoned streets in the Old Town are an adventure of their own. From the impressive Romanesque Imperial Palace you will have a tremendous view: In the naturally scenic background the over 600-metre-high Rammelsberg Mountain rises. In it we will visit the Mines of Rammelsberg, the only mines which had been working continuously for over 1,000 years when they finally closed in 1988.

There will be a bus transfer to and from locations in Wolfsburg (~ 35 min) and Goslar (~ 45 min).
