PROGRAMME

(Still subject to modifications)

Traffic and Public Transport

Due to the visit of Barack Obama on Thursday 25 May we expect unusual traffic situations in the city. Please be aware that a taxi might take much longer to the chosen destination and we therefore suggest to take public transport from the airport to the hotels or ask the taxi driver. You can get information about the public transport route on the hotel homepages.

NH Hotel Leipzigerstrasse is close by U Stadtmitte, U 2 and U 6, about 14 min walking distance to main location Axel-Springer-Strasse 65.

Hotel Park Plaza Wallstreet is near to U Märkisches Museum on U 2 and about 10 min walk to the main location Axel-Springer-Strasse 65.

 

Please be aware of the change of locations and programme for Thursday and Friday evening! Still more modifications might occur.

 

We kindly ask you to carry your Identity Card with you all the time (also your accompanying guests and children) as almost all locations have a security check!
