SIEF2017 13th Congress: Göttingen, Germany
26-30 March 2017
Finding accommodation (dwellings) in Göttingen for the duration of SIEF2017
SIEF2017 does not offer any accommodation with registration, so delegates will need to book their accommodation themselves.
The address of the main congress venue is ZENTRALES HÖRSAALGEBÄUDE, Platz der Göttinger Sieben 5, 37073 Göttingen.
If you are yet to find accommodation, you can try one of the following options:
- The accommodation page of the Göttingen tourism website; if the search engine yields no results, you can also try calling the hotels directly – there may be new vacancies from people who have recently cancelled
- this link: you will find two search options for private rooms or holiday apartments; make sure to inquire whether there is public transportation nearby. The search may be successful also in neighbouring villages, most of which have train or bus connections to Göttingen, such as Rosdorf, Northeim or Duderstadt. The city of Kassel is a 20 minute train ride away
- Youth Hostel still has a few free places, please contact asap: goettingen(at)jugendherberge.de
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!).
The 'Google' solution
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. Most places close to the venue will have been booked, but you may still be able to find sth within reasonable distance by public transport.
