Conference Venue

The conference venue is Schlosshotel Molkenkur, which is located on the hill above Heidelberg’s prestigious castle. While the location is quiet and a little secluded, it is nevertheless well connected to the old town, the castle, and the summit of the hill Königstuhl by the Funicular Railway. We believe the conference venue to offer an inspiring atmosphere for the exchange of ideas and are very much looking forward to welcoming you there.
