Within Leipzig

The conference venue is the Lecture Hall for Theoretical Physics (in German, "Hörsaal für Theoretische Physik") in the building of the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences in Linnéstr. 5, Leipzig. This is a 25mins walk from the city center or a 10mins tram ride with line 16 (direction "Lößnig") from "Hauptbahnhof" or "Augustusplatz" to "Johannisallee". From there walk through (!) the Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy, then enter the Faculty of Physics and Earth Sciences. Alternatively, the regional lines S1-S6 all stop at "Bayerischer Bahnhof", from where the conference venue is a 10mins walk.


The conference venue is a 10mins tram ride from the city center (tram stations "Augustusplatz" or "Hauptbahnhof"), and there are plenty of hotels in or near the city center. As there will be a major (unrelated) conference in parallel, we recommend to book as early as possible. A non-exhaustive list of suggestions is

  • MotelOne Post or MotelOne Augustusplatz: Directly at Augustusplatz. Approx. 100€ per night (excl. breakfast). For the former, we reserved a number of rooms for a fixed price until July 15. In the case of a shortage of rooms or increases of prices, please contact us for the booking form.
  • Ibis Budget: Close to the main station. Approx 60€ per night (excl. breakfast).
  • Hotel am Bayerischen Platz: Between conference venue and city center (both in walking distance). We reserved a number of rooms for 89€ per night (incl. breakfast), which you can book until July 15 by email to info@hotel-am-bayrischen-platz.de using the booking code "qegf".
