VENUE & HOTEL
The workshop takes place at the Abbe-Zentrum Beutenberg. It was opened in January 2006 and provides the science and innovation campus on Jena’s Beutenberg with a new central focus. This central building houses the communal facilities used by all the institutes based on the Beutenberg Campus. It can comfortably accommodate up to 200 people. Here you can check out the Campus Map.
How to reach the Beutenberg Campus:
- By public transport: From the city center, choose either of the bus lines 10, 11, 12, 13 to reach the Beutenberg campus.
- By car: It is not advisable to approach the Beutenberg campus by car due to the lack of public parking lots at the campus. However, if you wish to arrive by car, use »Hans-Knöll-Str. 1« as major input for your GPS system.
