Practical Information - Munich Annual Conference

Social Programme:

Our hosts at LMU have arranged a convivial social programme which includes an informal conference dinner on the Friday evening at the picturesque Restaurant Seehaus in the Englischen Garten; and on the Saturday afternoon there will be a short tour of LMU’s main building and the moving White Rose memorial exhibition which commemorates the White Rose Student Resistance, after which participants will be free to wander around Munich’s City Foundation Festival to celebrate its 861st birthday and which takes places over the weekend of 15 and 16 June.  Festival activities will include open air music and dance performances, as well as art and craft exhibitions and markets.  

Our conference programme will close on the Saturday evening with an informal drinks reception and dinner at a traditional Bavarian beer garden and restaurant.  

As ever, participants’ partners are most welcome to attend the social events.
