Remember to take care of your arrangements for accommodation, travel, and visa (if applicable), before attending the Congress. We are happy to help, so please find some of our suggestions below!


Berlin offers a wide range of affordable options for accommodation, including hotels and hostels. Apart from the many hostels and hotels available, we also recommend you to consider the hundreds of Couchsurfing and AirBnB options available in Berlin.


Berlin is a well connected city that is served by two airports: Tegel (TXL) and Schönefeld (SXF). If you wish to avoid air travel, multiple international and domestic train and bus connections are on offer for very affordable fares. The English website of the German Railways provides an easy-to-navigate search for available train connections, while Eurolines and Megabus are reliable providers of international bus connections.

Berlin has a very convenient public transportation system consisting of metro, buses, trams, and regional trains. You can find more information on the English website of the BVG.
