Accommodation / public transport

Berlin is a city with a huge number of hotels, hostels and bead and breakfast establishments. Certainly you can find your own accommodation, using hotel reservation systems (e. g. HRS) or similiar means.

However, for your convenience, we were able to negotiate reduced rates at two Berlin hotels:

  • M&M Hotel***, Berlin-Schöneweide (fully booked)
    A limited number of rooms have been available at a special rate.

There are no parking places on the observatory ground for ESOP participants.

However, on the opposite side of the road, there is a small parking space close to the restaurant "Zenner".
Should you want to use this space, please pay attention since the three-lane street is one-way.

More free public parking places are located in the closeby road named Neue Krugallee.

Both parking places are marked in the map above.

In both cases the walk is less than 4 minutes!

It is possible to do a quick stop at the observatory for registration and ask the organising committee members for further directions.
