University of Freiburg
Already a comprehensive university at its founding in 1457, the University of Freiburg still offers undergraduate and graduate studies as well as professorial qualification in all important disciplines today: the humanities, natural and engineering sciences, medicine, law, and theology. This diversity also provides an ideal environment for innovative interdisciplinary studies.
The University of Freiburg is a member of Eucor – The European Campus.
Where to go
The SIG2 meeting will take place in the lecture building of the Psychology Department of Freiburg University (see photo below). The conference is especially featured by the Department of Educational and Developmental Psychology.
The Psychology Department is located near the train station and is in walking distance to the city center.
We recommend early booking of hotel rooms as Freiburg is a very popular holiday area during this time of year.
Here is a short list of recommendations:
- StayInn Freiburg (http://www2.stayinn-freiburg.de/en/): Very close to train station and conference venue, good quality-price ratio
- Motel One Freiburg (https://www.motel-one.com/en/hotels/freiburg/): Close to city centre, good quality-price ratio
- Best Western Hotel Victoria (https://www.hotel-victoria.de/seiten/hotel.html?lang=English)
Dinner will take place on Tuesday (28/08/18) at the famous Greiffenegg Schlössle (http://www.greiffenegg.de/). Located on the Schlossberg, it allows for a wonderful view across the city of Freiburg as well as its sorroundings including the Black Forest.
Wifi at the conference
You will have wifi access via eduroam at the conference venue (and at several other places in the city).
