Visiting Berlin

Berlin is a vibrant city with a fascinating history. If you will be spending time in Berlin before or after the conference or traveling with family members who plan to explore Berlin while you’re at the conference, here are some ideas of what to do:

  • Visit one of the many museums of Berlin. Our favorites include: Haus der Kulturen der Welt, the Museum Island, the Museum of Natural History, Hamburger Bahnhof, the Jewish Museum, Martin Gropius Bau. You can find all information on Berlin’s museum here.
  • Travel through time with Berlin’s WWII heritage : Berlin’s wall memorial, a guided tour in Tempelhof former Airport or the Jewish Genocide Memorial.
  • Visit the dome of the Bundestag (German Federal Parliament) (reservations in advance).
  • Have some relaxing time in the vibrant neighborhoods of Neukölln, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg or Prenzlauerberg.

You can find more information on the Berlin’s tourism office website.

If you have time, visiting Potsdam is worth the trip. You can visit the the castle and park of Schloss Sanssouci and have a look at the historical site of Telegrafenberg, host of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact research and many more research institutes.
