On Friday afternoon, the conference excursion will take us to Bernkastel and its surroundings, and will of course also include a boat trip. The conference will end at lunchtime on Sunday.

    Trier is Germany's oldest city. It boasts a number of impressive UNESCO World Heritage sites dating back to Roman times, and accompanying partners will find plenty of interesting things to explore. The greater Trier region is also known for its excellent wine and beautiful scenery.
