About Mainz

  • Mainz is a fascinating city with a rich history. Its many sights include the remnants of a Roman theatre; St Martin's Cathedral, which dates back to the 10th century; and the Gutenberg Museum, dedicated to the inventor of movable type in Europe.
  • As the capital of Rhineland-Palatinate, it also boasts a rich cultural scene, with museums, theatres and concerts.
  • The city is located on the river Rhine - one of its main attractions, alongside the famous local wines.


In direct vicinity...

The Rhine-Main region has a lot more to offer! Here are a few options:

  • You can visit Frankfurt, with its skyscrapers and Germany's youngest old town (reconstruction work was finished only three years ago);
  • Or stop by Darmstadt, whose Jugendstil quarter, called Mathildenhöhe, was recently recognised as a World Heritage Site by Unesco;
  • Or plan a day trip to Wiesbaden, with its parks and spa complexes.

About the Venue

  • Our campus is only a short way (20 minutes on foot or two stops by tram or bus) from Mainz main station. Mainz can be easily reached by car or plane (Frankfurt am Main airport).
  • All sections will take place in the Philosophicum building or the Georg Forster building right next door to the Philosophicum. Both are centrally located on campus.
  • The plenaries and the members' meeting will take place either in lecture hall P1 (Philosophicum) or in one of the lecture halls in a building usually referred to as the "Muschel" (seashell). The latter is only a short walk away from the Philosophicum.
  • There is no shortage of options for food and drinks on campus, ranging from cafeterias to beer gardens, restaurants, and an Arab diner.
  • You can find a map detailing food and drink options on campus and in its immediate vicinity below. Click on the map for a larger version.
