Zurich, Switzerland

Travel & Venue Information

The conference will be held at Kongresshaus Zurich, Claridenstrasse 5, 8002 Zurich, Switzerland. The venue lies in the center of Zurich, a 20-minute walk through the old town of Zurich, or a 10-minute tram ride away from Zurich's main station (called "HB" by the locals). Zurich is easily reachable by train from many European destinations, including direct high-speed connections and night trains -- please consider traveling environmentally-friendly! If you need to come by airplane, there are direct and frequent train connections between Zurich airport (ZRH) and the main station, taking about 10 minutes. ZRH is a central hub in Europe and is also well-connected to overseas destinations.

The conference venue

Kongresshaus Zurich is located at lake Zurich, only a few minutes from the old town of Zurich. The same building hosts also Tonhalle Zurich, the concert hall of Zurich. There are countless restaurants and cafés in the area. Try walking along the river Limmat, through the old town, or along the lake. If you want to fit in with the locals, order "Kafi & Gipfeli" for breakfast, and visit one of the beloved Badis on the lake or along the river.
