A magnificent atmosphere is offered

The conference will take place in Konstanz at the historical ‘Konzil’ (Council) located directly on the shores of Lake Constance.

The ‘Konzil’ provides all amenities you would expect and promises to make your attendance as enjoyable as it is successful.
Another highlight awaits you at the conference dinner which will be taking place at the Steigenberger Inselhotel. Located on a small island close to the shores of Lake Constance, the Steigenberger Inselhotel, a former Dominican monastery in Konstanz.
