Staying in Leipzig:

Three things to be aware of:

  1. The city of Leipzig plans to introduce a tourist tax of 5% on top of accommodation fees for guests older than 18, starting in April 2023.
    As soon as we have more information, we will let you know here.
  2. Note for car drivers: Environmental badges are now mandatory in many European cities. The green German sticker is required to enter Leipzig. So far, only the stickers from the Czech Republic are recognized in Germany. The sticker can be purchased (among other places) here: Green-zones.eu
  3. For travelling from Leipzig to the venue by public transportation we recommend purchasing a weekly ticket from the Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe for 2 zones (Leipzig Transport Service)

Leipzig is a popular tourist destination. During the summer vacations it can therefore be difficult to find a free room. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to book early.

  • We have reserved a room contingent for Congress attendees in the following hotel/hostels, which also gives you a discount on the room rate. The rooms can be cancelled until about 2 weeks before the Congress beginns, meaning you can stay flexible in any eventuality. Each hotel can provide you with their exact booking conditions.
    PS: you might get even better rates if you choose the options ‘with prepayment’ and ‘no cancellation’. To do this, please book directly on the websites of the hotels as usual.
