All events and meetings will take place at the WELCOME Kongresshotel Bamberg, where there are 160 rooms available at mid-range prices.


A second WELCOME Hotel, Residenzschloss Bamberg, which is a five-minute walk along a footpath from the conference venue, has 90 rooms available, with prices in the upper range.


We have been able to negotiate special rates for both hotels between 21st and 28th October. To take advantage of these rates, please use this dedicated booking page.


If you are coming earlier or staying longer, then you should book with the hotel via email or phone using the code ‘Ordenstagung 2018’ to get the same special rates as for the agreed dates.


If you are sharing a room with someone else, then you should coordinate with each other in advance. One of you should book the room, and name the other guest during booking. You can then split the cost on departure.


All rooms in both hotels will be reserved exclusively for DFO and IAF bookings until 15th December 2017, when 50% of the rooms will become available on the open market. From 15th May 2018, all rooms will be available on the open market.


Alternative accommodation options can be requested and booked through Bamberg Tourism & Congress Service.


Airport shuttles will be available for arrivals to, and departures from, Nuremberg, Frankfurt am Main, and Munich airports, regardless of where you are staying. However, transport will not be provided between any alternative accommodation and the conference venue during the week.
