Social Activities

Apart from a mathematically fruitful (and certainly intense) summer school and conference, we also want you to have a pleasant stay in Berlin. Here are some suggestions.

Fête de la Musique in Kreuzberg/Friedrichshain on Thursday, June 21, 2012 (click here)
Soap box derby in Kreuzberg on Sunday, June 24, 2012 (click here)

Restaurants, bars, and more
For a continuously expanded map of restaurants and bars (approximately ordered by distance), please see here:

Beer nights
Let's have a beer or two at one of the many bars that Berlin has to offer!

The second beer night will take place on Tuesday, June 19, 2012. There will be groups leaving from the tutorial to Bergmannstraße in Berlin-Kreuzberg (click here for a map). There we will also have the chance to watch the Euro 2012 soccer game England - Ukraine.
The nearest subway station is U7 Mehringdamm.

The first beer night will take place on Sunday, June 17, 2012, the night before the summer school starts. Due to the Euro 2012 soccer game Germany - Denmark all bars will be heavily overcrowded on that night. Therefore, we will meet in the foyer of the math department and give you the opportunity to watch the game here.

Opening Meeting
on Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 7 pm
at Arnimalle 7, 14195 Berlin
on campus of Freie Universität Berlin.

You will be able to buy cheap beverages here.
We will not provide food, but we will be happy to assist in case you would like to order pizza.

Guided city tours
There is an infinite amount of guided city tours available. Sebastian's favorite is the 3.5 hour (including a coffee break) English-language walking tour by Sandeman's New Europe. It is free, however the tour guide will be asking for tip.

Visit of the Reichstag building
Unfortunately, as our group has become too large, it was not possible for us to arrange a visit of the Reichstag building for all participants. If you would still like to visit the home of the German Parliament, please get together in small groups and register here.
(Registrations have to be made several days prior to the visit!)
