Accommodation Principles

Delmenhorst is a very compact city with only a limited number of accommodation facilities. Therefore we recommend that you make a hotel reservation as early as possible. Another way is to stay at a hotel close to the Bremen central station (from there, it takes ca. 10 minutes by train to get to Delmenhorst).

Please note that the organizing team WILL NOT take on any hotel bookings for conference participants (except invited speakers). All guests are required to make their own accommodation arrangements.

The organizers have negotiated discount rates for the conference attendees at the following two hotels.

  • City-Hotel Delmenhorst: Single room 50.00 EUR/night
  • Hotel Hof Hoyerswege in Ganderkesee: Single room 45.00 EUR/night

The rates are per night, per room incl. taxes & breakfast. Rooms at special rates will remain available until the room block reaches capacity. We therefore strongly recommend you that you make your reservation as soon as possible.

To make a reservation with a special rate:

  • Contact the hotel directly by e-mail or by telephone. It is NOT possible to receive a special rate via any online booking service.
  • Ask for "HWK-conference" rate when making your reservation.

Hotel options in Bremen

City Tax: Please note that tourism tax (so-called "city tax") is levied in Bremen. The city tax only applies to travellers staying in hotels for private purposes. Tourism tax will not be charged if overnight stays are for business purposes (e.g. participation in a conference). In order to avoid city tax, one must provide credible evidence of the business purpose of his/her stay, which is issued by employer or professional body. For further information, please visit the tourist information website of the federal state of Bremen and/or contact the hotel of your choice.
