The conference venue in Str. des 17 Juni 152 (Architecture building of the TU Berlin; directly at Ernst-Reuter-Platz) is easily (and best) reachable by public transport after your arrival in Berlin .
Journey by car
This is not complicated either, but a good city map or a GPS device could be helpful. Ernst-Reuter-Platz is situated in Berlin Charlottenburg and is directly accessible from the city highway (exit Kaiserdamm) over Kaiserdamm and the extension of Bismarckstrasse. At this time of the year sufficient parking facilities are available in close proximity to the conference venue.
Attention! Please keep in mind that the inner-city of Berlin has since 2008 been declared a low-emission zone. A green badge on your car is therefore compulsory.
Information on the environmental zone and badge request options can be found here: www.umweltzone-berlin.de.
