The end of the first conference day will offer a tasting of local delights from the region of ‘Rheinhessen’ and a conference dinner by star chef Philipp Stein (one star in the Guide Michelin & 17 points in Gault Millau). If weather permits, the dinner will again be served on the nearby terrace overlooking the Rhine River which was much enjoyed by all delegates.
Accompanying partners can enjoy sightseeing in Mainz or a boat trip on the Rhine, seeing the world heritage site of the Middle Rhine Valley with its spectacular scenery of many castles and the ‘Lorelei’ from the river or during onsite visits.

Buy an adult ticket to Mainz/Wiesbaden which is a flat rate no matter where exactly you exit. Use the cheapest (direct way) rate.
• Take S8 leaving every 30 min from platform 3 to final destination Wiesbaden. Do not use S9 (same platform) via Mainz-Kastel, as this is a part of Wiesbaden not Mainz!
