How to Get There?

The best way to get there is using the U-Bahn. The station “Dahlem-Dorf” of the line U3 is about 300m away from the conference location. From there you take the U-Bahn in the direction Nollendorfplatz. At the station Wittenbergplatz you change to the U2, direction Pankow. You leave the U2 at Märkesches Museum. From there it is a 400m walk to the landing point of the boat. To be there on time we recommend leaving the hotel at latest 6:15pm.


From the hotel to U-Bahn U3 Dahlem Dorf
