At the end of the first conference day, we will offer a selection of local craft beers, or a ‘Sekt’. This will be followed by the joint Conference Dinner on the hotel terrace, or inside, depending on the usually lovely weather in May. Dinner is accompanied by a variety of local wines, soft drinks, or beer. During the conference dinner, you will meet other participants and can also discuss who should get the Poster Award. The dinner ends at 10 pm.
Accompanying partners can enjoy sightseeing of beautiful Rhine area, or shopping in Mainz, Wiesbaden, or Frankfurt, all easily accessible by public transportation. A boat trip on the Rhine River, seeing the world heritage site of the Middle Rhine Valley with its spectacular scenery of many castles and the ‘Lorelei’ is also recommended. If you are interested to tour a number of outstanding wine makers in Rheinhessen and Rheingau for a tasting and wine purchase, please request additional information from the organizer.
