Before the meeting starts, our plan is to offer a tour on Sunday around 12:30 pm, heading for the Wihlemshoehe Palace in Kassel, which will last around 3-4 hours altogether. Please let us know as soon as you decide to join or not, so that we can arrange it.

On Monday evening at 7:00 pm we will invite you to a dinner at the historic Rathskeller. Before that we offer a guided tour through the exhibition hall of the Pauliner Church, the State and University library and the University Aula, which will all last approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Afterwards we will be glad to invite you for a meeting with the president (or his representative) of the university around 20-30 minutes, then go to dinner. We will make a further notice once we get further details.
