The Congress Hotel

The meeting will be held at the Congress Hotel "Hotel Preußischer Hof Liebenwalde" in Liebenwalde. Liebenwalde is approx. 40 km north of Berlin in the Mark Brandenburg in a natural reservation called "Schorfheide". In former times this was the hunting area of the Prussian kings. The Hotel offers the comfort of a four stars hotel, but also keeps the rural charme of a Prussian manor. Until the end of the 19th century it served as a depot for remounts for the Prussian army.
