Location and Arrival

Location

The rich tradition of this place goes back to the 14th century. In 1705, the ruins of an old castle were removed and the baroque castle was build which is still there today. Today, the building is used for meetings, teaching and youth activities. The stylish appearance of the conference site as well as its cloistered location will provide for a maximum of scientific discussions. All participants also sleep at the castle. The conference dinner will take place in a beautiful baroque ballroom. Housing and meals are included in the conference fee.
