Two optional guided tours are offered to all conference participants. Both tours can be booked via the registration form and are 5 Euros each.
a) If you are in Leipzig for the first time, you might be interested in getting to know the city by joining the Guided City Walk Leipzig. You will find out amazing facts about the culture of our fascinating city which is as old as 1000 years and as young as being called ‘Hypezig’ due to its recent boom in business and culture. The guided tour will be in English and will last approximately 90 minutes. It includes the historic market place with the impressive Old Town Hall as well as St. Nicholas‘s Church, where the Peaceful Revolution of 1989 started, to name just two places. The tour will start at the conference venue: Dittrichring 5-7, 04109 Leipzig at 16.00. Extra fee: 5 Euros.
b) If you know Leipzig but would like to find out more about its best kept secret, then you have the opportunity to take part in a rare opportunity - a Guided Tour of the University Paulinum. This building – under construction and usually not open to the public - has been built in the shape of the Paulinerkirche, a medieval church that had been destroyed under the communist system in 1968. In the making for more than 10 years, it will house objects saved from the destroyed church – most of them already put in place - but also an events room and space for prayers.The Building is part of the reconstructed heart of Leipzig University celebrating its 600th birthday in 2009. The meeting point for this guided tour will be at 16.00 at the monument of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz at the Campus Courtyard (Leibnizforum) between Augustusplatz and Universitätsstraße (see map unter "Venue & Contact"). Extra fee: 5 Euros.
19:00 - 21:00 - Conference Warming
