Course venue

The course is taking place at Schloß Rauischholzhausen which is the conference center of the University of Gießen. We are happy to be able to host our course at this historical and beautiful site. It offers learning space and accommodation combined in the same building and due to the affiliation with the University the prices are fair. A good variety of seminar rooms compliment our course concept of combining lectures with small group activities. Moving our course to this location in 2016 has proven to have been worthwhile.
