Excursion & Dinner

Conference participants are welcomed to join a walking trip on Wednesday, June 19th. At the end of the trip we will have dinner together.

The trip will start in Heidelberg's old town. After crossing the "Old Bridge", we will climb the famous "Philosophenweg" which offers one of the best-known views of Heidelberg's old town and castle. We will then follow a walking trail through the woods at the end of which we will reach restaurant "Klosterhof Neuburg" external Link in the late afternoon. A buffet-style dinner has been arranged there.

Those who do not want to participate in the hiking through the hills can reach "Klosterhof Neuburg" via an alternative route following the street along the Neckar river. This route is shorter and physically much less demanding.

The itinerary for both tours can be found here external Link.

A special price arrangement (35€/person, including 2 drinks) with the restaurant has been made. However, participants will have to pay for themselves. After the dinner we will return to Heidelberg City by bus.
