Guided tours Science Park at Telegrafenberg on 21 June
We offer guided tours of one hour duration over the Science Park Albert Einstein on the Telegrafenberg on the tutorial day (21 June) at the following times:
The tours will certainly pass by the Optical Telegraph, which gave the mountain its name, the famous Einstein Tower and the Great Refractor inside one of the historic buildings. The tours are offered free of charge by the public relations office of GFZ and are conducted by (former) GFZ colleagues.
You can also explore the Telegrafenberg on your own along a marked tour with 14 panels described in a small booklet that also contains a brief overview of the history of the hill and the scientific institutions located here today. The map below shows the location of the institute buildings as well as the tour with the panels. Most workshop session and the Icebreaker event will take place in House H, while some parallel sessions will be held in the lecture halls in buildings A45S and A56.
Icebreaker on 22 June
All workshop participants are cordially invited to the Icebreaker event on the evening of the first workshop day 22 June 6pm-8pm. We have decided to have a small reception in a relaxed atmosphere directly in the casino and on the terrace above the lecture hall in House H on Telegrafenberg, thus avoiding the travel to another venue after the end of the session programme.
Cultural programme and dinner on 23 June
Before the dinner starts, you have the option to participate in a guided tour through Sanssouci Park around Sanssouci Palace (please register for the tour in the ConfTool during workshop registration). The palace itself is closed in the workshop week due to the music festival taking place at the same time. However, it is worth visiting at another time. As an alternative to the guided tour, there is also the possibility to visit the nearby Historic Mill in a special opening. Here, when the wind blows, flour is still produced and the view from the terrace close to the wings is fantastic. The entrance is free for workshop participants (no registration required). Please note, that there will be no guided tour in the mill, but descriptions in English language.
We offer a free bus transfer from the workshop venue on Telegrafenberg to the location of the guided tours and dinner. The bus is scheduled to depart at the entrance of the Science Park at 5.30pm. The guided tours and special opening of the Historic Mill will be from 6pm to 7pm.
