Both tours at Wednesday afternoon are subject to a minimal number of participants.

The Welcome Center of the University provides further suggestions for sight-seeing. And if you have one day before or after the conference, the neighbouring city of Bamberg, only a little more than one hour by train from Bayreuth, is also worth a visit.

This event is co-funded by the European Union under the 7th Framework Programme «FP7-PEOPLE-2010-ITN», Grant agreement number 264735-SADCO.
