Date & Venue

Come to Berlin this September

CSSconf EU will take place on September 26, 2015 in Berlin, offering a day packed with inspiring and insightful talks and time well spent in the company of great people. We're really excited about our line-up and we can't wait to see them all on stage! Here's how it'll all play out, a.k.a our schedule.

The industrial building of Radialsystem V creates the perfect setting for a great day: located in the heart of Berlin, right next to the river Spree, our venue is very close to hotels, restaurants, nightlife, and the buzzing Mitte, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain districts.

RADIALSYSTEM V - Holzmarktstraße 33, 10243 Berlin

Catering

Our chefs and coffee specialists will make sure you don't go hungry or run the risk of low caffeination throughout the day. You can expect a light breakfast, healthy lunch with various options, and streetfood-style dinner. All meals will include vegetarian and vegan options.


How To Get There: Travel And Public Transport

Berlin’s Airports

Berlin has two airports, both are located close to the city center, a 30-minute taxi ride from the venue (ca. EUR 30). There are also trains and buses that connect the airports to Berlin Ostbahnhof station, which is only a 5 minute walk to the venue.

Getting Around By Car

Parking

The compound of RADIALSYSTEM V includes two parking spaces for the disabled. Additional parking is available at the train station Berlin Ostbahnhof. Here’s a list of all covered car parks in Berlin.

Car Sharing

Various suppliers for car sharing in Berlin give you the opportunity to pick up cars (they have an app for that) and drop them off (mostly) wherever you want. The best-known are DriveNow, Car2Go and Multicity. Please beware that the registration process may take some time and all companies require registration fees, so it may be only worth it if you’re planning a longer stay in town.


Where To Stay: Accommodation

Hotel Recommendations

Below are a few hotels we recommend, all within walking distance to the venue. If none of those fit your needs, check out HRS or private accommodation options like AirBnB or Couchsurfing.

Time to Party!

What would a great day be if it didn't end in celebration! Here's what we have planned:

7pm: CSSconf Dinner

Around 7pm, after the talks have ended and the big family photo has been taken, we’ll come together for food, drinks and, most importantly, to talk and discuss the events of the day with fellow CSSconf EU attendees. We’ll serve a streetfood-style dinner and snacks, including tasty vegan and vegetarian options, to keep you sated.

9pm: CSSconf Party

The party will also take place at the conference venue, RADIALSYSTEM V, so there'll be no long walks from dinner to drinks to party. Friends, family and the community are also welcome to join us, provided they present a party ticket at the door. Party tickets can be purchased here.

Other parties and gatherings
