SIEF2017 13th Congress: Göttingen, Germany
26-30 March 2017

Finding accommodation (dwellings) in Göttingen for the duration of SIEF2017

Please note: SIEF2017 does not offer any accommodation with registration, so delegates will need to book their accommodation needs directly themselves.

Göttingen is a vibrant university town, but when it comes to finding accommodation, you need to take in account that this is not a huge city with an endless amount of choices. We therefore recommend booking your rooms well ahead, to make sure that you get an accommodation that is to your liking.

The address of the main congress venue is ZENTRALES HÖRSAALGEBÄUDE, Platz der Göttinger Sieben 5, 37073 Göttingen.

Hotels offering a special price for SIEF2017 participants

A number of hotels in Göttingen that are in easy reach of the conference venue either by foot or public transport offer a special price to SIEF2017 congress participants on the dates 26- 30th March 2017. This offer expires on February 26, four weeks before the congress starts. After that date you can book directly but at the usual prices.
Please also note that if you need to arrive earlier, or stay longer, you should contact the hotel directly.

Please use this link for booking.

Other options for finding accommodation: the 'Google' solution

For finding accommodation, you can use peer-reviewed travel advice or accommodation sites such as Tripadvisor, Lonely Planet, Booking.com

Needless to say, you can also simply google “accommodation near Platz der Göttinger Sieben 5” and see what turns up.

If you are thinking of renting a place for the week, where you can do your own cooking and maybe share the costs with colleagues/family, look at the “Vacation rentals” section on Tripadvisor, search www.airbnb.com, or the 'Homes and apartments' section in Booking.com and read the advice/reviews before making a booking.

For those who want to meet locals, yet keep their costs to an absolute minimum, we recommend looking at couch-surfing (always remember to read the reviews first!).

Local couches for colleagues

Local students from Göttingen are happy to offer their couches to delegates struggling to find affordable accommodation. If interested in this option please email fg-kaee(at)lists.uni-goettingen.de.
