Here are the addresses and nearest public transport stops of our two hotels:

Seminaris CampusHotel, Takustraße 39, 14195 Berlin. The hotel is a short walk from the U-Bahn station ‘U Dahlem-Dorf’. This also where you should head for if you’re arriving on the 21st and want to come straight to the conference.

• Pension Dalg, Ritterstr. 6a, 12207 Berlin. The bus stop ‘Promenadenstr.’ is just round the corner from the pension; the station ‘Lichterfelde Ost’ is about 10 minutes away on foot.

You can enter these stops along with with your point of arrival (SXF, TXL, Hauptbahnhof, …) onto Berlin’s public transport journey planner. It will also (under ‘Fares’) tell you which zones you will need a ticket for. Please remember that tickets purchased at machines for travel on bus, U-Bahn, or S-Bahn need to be validated on first use. This should be done on a bus or in the U- and S-Bahn stations.


•  Villa of the Sonderforschungsbereich 980 ‘Episteme in Bewegung’, Schwendenerstr. 8, 14195 Berlin. All conference sessions on 21 and 22 July will take place here, as well as lunch on 21 July.

Museum Europäischer Kulturen, Arnimallee 25, 14195 Berlin. Location for drinks reception (in ‘KAFFEE’, 5.45 pm) and public performance ‘Nasreddin Hodja and Other Stories’ (6.15 pm) on 21 July. The museum will also be open to conference participants from 5 to 6 pm.

Restaurant Luise, Königin-Luise-Str. 40–42, 14195 Berlin. Conference dinner on 21 July, 7.45 pm.

Getting to and from the venues

The villa, museum, and restaurant are all within walking distance of one another and the Seminaris CampusHotel.

If you are staying in the Pension Dalg, the bus is the best way of getting to the SFB villa. There are stops very close to the Pension (Promenadenstr.) and the SFB villa (Limonenstr.). The journey takes roughly 30 minutes, with 1 or 2 changes (zone A+B ticket).

If you are staying elsewhere in Berlin, your best bet is to head for the Limonenstr. bus stop or the U-Bahn station ‘U Dahlem-Dorf’.
