The PPI GA will be in Berlin
on the 23th and 24th of July 2016.


CCG Congress Consult und Immobiliengesellschaft mbH
Franz-Mehring-Platz 1
10243 Berlin
The gathering of the PPI will take place in the heart of Europe, the city of Berlin. The venue is located slightly to the east of the city centre in an area that still radiates the historical charm of East Berlin. The grey and durable structures of appartment blocks which surround the venue give every visitor a good idea of what Berlin looked like during the era of the Cold War. So the venue is not only in the centre of Berlin, it is also a historical site in itself. The "Haus des Neuen Deutschland" is owned by a left-wing newspaper publishing company and has served the Pirate Party Berlin well for a couple of years now.

Directions (Train, Plane)

The venue is situated in the eastern city centre about 500 metres (or only a 5-minute-walk) from one of the main train stations called "Ostbahnhof". The train station is part of the main public transportation line going from east to west through Berlin City.
Costs: A oneway ticket for public transportation costs about 2.70 Euro and a day ticket for most of Berlin costs 7 Euro.
It's really easy to find your way to Berlin. There are daily flights from anywhere to the city. Train connections are available as well. Via public transportation it takes about 45 minutes to get to Tegel Airport or to Berlin-Schönefeld Airport.

Accommodation (Hotels, Couch surfing)

There are hotels basically everywhere and you get the full range of comfort, from back-packer to 5-star-hotels. Prices are ranging from 10 Euro per night for a cheap shared room in a hostel. The average costs for a hotel room are lowest among european capitals.
Cheap Hotels in East Berlin
The local members will try to provide as many couch surfing places and shared appartements as possible. Feel free to ask Jessica Miriam Zinn via email:
A lot of restaurants of different kinds and levels of prices can be found in walkable distance.
