Travel Information


At the time the workshop takes place the Indian Summer starts in Munich meaning that the day temperatures are still pleasant. However, we would recommend that you are also prepared for chilly temperatures and rain. You may check the local weather conditions prior to arrival here.

Hotels, Transportation, and Meals

The hotels are in walking distance from the conference site (Hauser) or on the main subway line (U3/6) with high frequency service from approximately 5 a.m. in the morning to 1 a.m. in the night. You can reach the Academy Building in less than 20 minutes from all locations. A local street map and the map of the public mass transportation are available here.
We will have lunch in the Wappensaal of the "Hofbräuhaus", Platzl 9 and a social dinner at "Schneider Bräuhaus", Tal 7. In all cases, there will be a selection of vegetarian dishes along with the typical local food.
