Awards ceremony followed by the conference dinner within the historic Festival Hall of the Münchner Hofbräuhaus.
Built by Duke Wilhelm V in 1589, the historic banquet hall was among the sections of the Hofbräuhaus that suffered the most damage during World War II. After being completely renovated in 1958, it was again used for celebrations of all kinds, as it had been in previous decades.
A special feature of the Festival Hall's architecture is the large, vaulted ceiling with its predominantly pink and blue frescos of Bavarian coats of arms. Since it rests on the outside walls, the vault was built without columns despite its enormous weight. The large arched windows are flanked by very old charter flags of all Bavaria's administrative districts. Equally decorative are the frescos on both rear walls with balustrades reminiscent of Venetian palazzos. Three 32-light chandeliers provide a harmonious finishing touch, underscoring the hall's splendor. You will enjoy your meal on original carved Hofbräuhaus chairs; King Ludwig II himself may have already sat in.
Designed to seat 700 people, the festival hall offers an impressive backdrop for the traditional Bavarian dance and folklore. Fresh beer is served along with original Bavarian specialties from the Hofbräuhaus butchery.
Included within the Geomunich2011 - Fragile Earth - registration fee for the first 600 applicants.
