We love (and live) sustainability

Sustainable actions are permanently anchored in Freiburg’s DNA. The city has been committed to sustainable actions for decades. This is the whole idea behind the Green City Freiburg, in which all of the city’s measures are bundled.

The topic of sustainability is becoming more and more important in the conference industry as well. Many MICE partners are engaged in various ways with sustainable concepts for green meetings in Freiburg: a large selection of locations that work in a particularly resource-protecting manner, the “Kongressticket”, which ensures a clean carbon footprint with 100% eco-power, as well as regional cuisine in the interests of culinary environmental protection are just a few of the measures being implemented for more sustainability in Freiburg.

4,300 hotel rooms for your participants

Freiburg offers a large number of accommodation options for your conference participants. Many hotels are centrally located in the city centre or are found within walking distance of Freiburg Central Train Station and Freiburg Minster, in the heart of Freiburg city centre. Accommodation located further afield can also, in large part, be reached by public transport. Additionally, many hotels offer parking.

We mediate, book and manage hotel allotments for the participants of your conference and ensure free room capacities for all your guests.
