Workshop Location


The city combines urbane sophistication, maritime flair, the open-mindedness of a metropolis, and high recreational value. With its wide range of cultural and sports offerings, Hamburg is never boring. 

The second-largest city in Germany has traditionally been seen as a gateway to the world. Its port is not only the largest seaport in Germany and the second-largest in Europe, but a residential neighborhood with leisure, recreational and educational facilities. Hamburg is a very special place. A green city criss-crossed by waterways, it is upscale and elegant around the Alster and the main shopping streets, and creative and youthful in the Karolinenviertel and Sternschanze neighborhoods. Sunset over the Elbe, cinemas, musicals, and concerts of an evening, restaurants, bars, and clubs at night, the Fischmarkt at daybreak, sailing on or walking by the Alster lake or the Elbe river, jogging in the Stadtpark – Hamburg has it all. 

Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH)

The TUHH is one of Germany’s youngest universities. It came into begin in 1978 and the research activities started in 1980. Between 1982 and 2005, a campus university grew up in the south of Hamburg, its modern buildings blending into the terrain. With its green spaces and trees, the campus is an inviting place to linger. Gradually, the TUHH extended its site northward to the edge of the Schwarzenberg.

Today, the TUHH has around 100 professors and 1,150 employees (including 500 academic staff, inclusive of those with salaries from third-party funding). With around 5,000 students, this makes for an excellent staff-student ratio. There is plenty of space on campus for encounters and fruitful exchanges of ideas. The atmosphere is easy to describe – young, innovative, unconventional, original and creative, an ideal atmosphere for developing new ideas in engineering sciences.

Workshop Location

The workshop will be held at The Rilano Hotel Hamburg (formerly "Golden Tulip Hamburg Aviation").  

The hotel is located in Hamburg Finkenwerder on a former shipyard site and offers a perfect view on the river Elbe with the passing ships. Hamburg Finkenwerder is an idyllic former fishing village and today home of the Airbus aircraft factory. The Rilano Hotel provides its own ferry slot where harbour ferries frequently leave towards Hamburg downtown.
