Looking at Violence from the Gender Perspective

International Conference, Hamburg
November 12-14, 2008

On this page you will find some information to help you plan your trip and arrive at the conference venue or your hotel safely. We have also put together some information on what Hamburg has to offer.


Convention Center Patriotische Gesellschaft

The small convention center, being part of the House of the Patriotische Gesellschaft, is located on Trostbrücke 6, in the lively business center of the city of Hamburg. The building, a neogothic structure dating back to the 19th century, is of great historical importance, as the former townhall once stood on its premises, until destroyed by the Great Fire in 1842. For twelve years it served as plenum for the Hamburg parliament until the construction of the new townhall had been completed.
