Travel & Accommodation

Due to a booking error by the Hotel Palace Berlin, we have been forced to move the conference venue for Pb2017 to the Crowne Plaza Berlin City Centre Hotel (Nurnberger Strasse 65, 10787 Berlin) which is just a few minutes walk from the Hotel Palace Berlin. This in no way affects the conference or workshop programme.

We apologise for this inconvenience, which is entirely down to a mistake on the part of the Hotel Palace Berlin and which, despite our very best efforts, we have been unable to resolve without moving hotel.

Travel: Berlin is serviced by most leading airlines operating direct flights from major cities throughout Europe and the rest of the world. There are two airports in the city Tegel (25 minutes to the city centre by taxi) and Schonefeld and standard fares apply to all Berlin taxi drivers.

As the capital of Germany, Berlin is a popular destination for tourists. As a result there is always high demand for accommodation and delegates are therefore strongly recommended to make flight and hotel reservations well in advance.

Climate: The weather in Berlin in June is likely to be warm with an average high temperature of 21.6C.

Visas: There is visa-free entry for citizens of most European countries, and many other countries.

Delegates who need a formal invitation letter in order to obtain a visa to attend Pb2017 are advised to contact the Conference Secretariat as soon as possible. To find out if you need a visa, there is a useful website at Asking for such a letter is not a commitment to attend, but can speed up visa applications.

Accommodation: Special room rates, inclusive of breakfast, VAT, internet, service and local taxes, have been arranged at the Crowne Plaza Berlin City Centre. The hotel is pleased to extend the special room rates for up to three days before and/or after Pb2017. The below rates are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
