Accommodation and Arrival

Participants are kindly asked to arrange for their accommodation themselves. Mainz offers many accommodation facilities but we strongly advise you to book your accommodation early on: due to trade fairs and other large-scale events it can be difficult to find inexpensive and centrally located accommodation if you are booking at short notice.

We have pre-booked a certain amount of hotel rooms in Mainz:
