Local information



Preliminary Social programme


For the participants arriving on Sunday (June 16): we meet on the terrace/in the bar of the venue after dinner, starting around 19:00. Both can be found at the level below the main entrance of the Haus der Kirche. Drinks are at your own expenses.


On Monday (June 17), we offer the opportunity to make a hike in the nearby nature. We start at 16:30 in front of the building. Please bring appropriate shoes/clothes, in particular something to protect you from the sun and/or rain. The hike will be rather easy. We are planning to offer two hikes: relaxed (~3 km total, only slight slopes, ~1 hr), and sporty (~8km total, 300m uphill, ~2hrs). The path quality on both hikes is good, so normal sport shoes should be sufficient.


On Monday (June 17), we have a barbecue at the the conference venue starting at 19:00. Food and drinks are included in the conference registration.

Excursion and dinner

There will be an excursion to the city of Baden-Baden, including the possibility to visit the famous casino after the dinner. Buses depart at 15:10 at the conference venue. At 16:00, we meet near the Caracalla Thermen (in front of the Aqua Aurelia Hotel) to have a guided tour through Baden-Baden (in 3 groups), finishing around 18:00. You then have some time on your own, maps will be provided.

At 19:00, we start the conference dinner at the restaurant Stahlbad in Baden Baden. The dinner lasts until 22:00.

Buses going back to Bad Herrenalb are at 22:30, 23:30, and 00:30. The departure place will be the same where the bus dropped you (in front of the Aqua Aurelia Hotel). You can choose between either of these buses, but beware that at this time of the day there is no public transport available, so do not miss the last bus!

In case you want to gamble in the casino: they have two different types of gamblings: machines and tables. For both, different dress codes apply: neat casual wear for gambling at the machines, and adequate clothes (jacket, shirt and tie for men) for the tables (translated literally from their German website). Men may also rent jacket, shirt and tie at the casino (29 EUR in sum).
