If you arrive before Sunday at 2.30 pm, you are invited to join us for a viewing of the baroque Waterfeatures ("Wasserspiele") in Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe, which were built in the 18th century. During this spectacular event, you will be able to follow the water on its journey as it runs from the Hercules Monument down cascades, basins and waterfalls for about an hour before culminating in the Grand Fountain at the bottom of the hill.

Besides the Waterfeatures, Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Europe's largest hillside park, also has other impressive sights to offer, such as the Lion's Castle (Löwenburg) and Wilhelmshöhe Palace (Schloss Wilhelmshöhe). So whether you join us or prefer to explore it on your own, it is definitely worth a visit!


On Monday evening, you are invited to join us for dinner at the Brewery Knallhütte. This cosy restaurant, whose decoration is inspired by the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm, serves traditional German food and - of course - freshly-brewed beer from its in-house brewery.


On Tuesday evening, the conference dinner will be held at the Orangerie Palace, a baroque castle which served as a summer residence to the Landgraves of Kassel in the 18th and 19th century. Here, you will be able to sample a wide range of food and drink from the dinner buffet while enjoying a spectacular view of the Karlsaue Park.
