Getting to Hamburg

Hamburg is very well connected to major high-speed train networks. The station Hamburg Dammtor is within walking distance to the Colloquium venue = campus of the University of Hamburg as well as to most hotels where Colloquium participants will be staying.

 
The local Colloquium organizers of the 36th EGOS Colloquium 2020 in Hamburg are committed to offset the entire CO2 emissions of this conference (re. transportation, food, logistics, hotels, etc.).

Therefore, we kindly encourage all Colloquium participants to compensate their travel emissions with offsetting schemes, offered, for example, by atmosfair.
