The conference dinner

The conference dinner takes place on Wednesday, 5 September 2012 at 20.00h, in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.

It will be held in the apple wine garden restaurant „Zur Sonne“, a typical Frankfurt apple wine pub. It is located in the Bornheim neighbourhood of Frankfurt.

There will be seating in a traditional apple wine/beer garden atmosphere under the large chestnut tree as well as in the frame house.

Tickets for the   conference dinner can be booked together with the conference registration for an additional € 20. There are still places left but we are getting close to the capacity of the Conference dinner place.

Apple wine is the most traditional drink in Frankfurt. The inhabitants of Frankfurt are fond of their numerous kinds of traditional apple wine houses which can be found all over the city, especially in Sachsenhausen and Bornheim.

Bornheim was first mentioned in 1194 A.D. and became a part of Frankfurt in 1877. „Bernem“ as the locals call it, was always considered the „merry village “ (das "lustige Dorf") and was well known for its pubs, dancing and for prostitution. Still popular today is the „Bornheimer Kerb“, a local village fair celebrated each year in August since 1608. The most lively part of Bornheim is Berger Strasse, a street which stretches from the inner city due north up to Bornheim (approx. 6 km). Restaurants, shops and pubs of all kinds make it interesting to stroll up the street. The northern end of Berger Straße is, along with Sachsenhausen, a stronghold of apple wine in Frankfurt.

Do not forget to bring your name badge and your conference dinner ticket with you!
