Venue & Travel

IFAC 2020, the 21st IFAC World Congress, will be held in Berlin from the 12th to 17th of July 2020. Berlin, Germany’s capital, is a vibrant cosmopolitan city, offering a wide range of cultural and touristic attractions.

Berlin is a green city, with rivers and canals, and is particularly enjoyable in summer time.

All sessions of IFAC2020 will be held in the Estrel hotel and congress center. It is situated in the “Neukoelln” district of Berlin, and is easily accessible by public transport from everywhere in the city.

Neukoelln, which has traditionally been a working class area with a strong immigrant component, is rapidly transforming itself into a lively neighborhood attractive for students and artists, with lots of cultural and culinary attractions.

This is especially true for the nothern part of Neukoelln, bordering the “Kreuzberg” district of Berlin. This part, commonly known as “Kreuzkoelln” , full of interesting cafes and restaurants, is within easy walking distance of the Estrel congress centre.
