Event

Conference dinner

Thursday 26th of September / 19.15 pm

Enjoy Bavarian haute cuisine in the most traditional tavern of Straubing.

The theme of the conference dinner is traditional Bavarian food alongside the best-known beverage of Bavaria – beer. For this, we will gather in the oldest tavern in Straubing, which has a history dating back more than 480 years.

The historical restaurant was built in the year 1462, and from then on has nearly continuously served as a brewery and tavern. The modern building is just a part of the original complex, but still evokes the historical atmosphere in a unique manner. The building was completely refurbished in 2001-2002 in order to preserve its valuable façade, as well as the ambience of the late middle age.

Since then, the restaurant “zum Geiss” and its pleasant landlady “Michi” have launched a series of innovative and creative interpretations of traditional Bavarian dishes of the highest quality. The primary ingredients are of regional and seasonal origin in order to meet high sustainability and natural taste requirements. In addition, Michi is one of the rare German female biersommeliérs. For this reason, the topic of beer is highly appreciated at this tavern and will accompany us for the whole event.

We will enjoy great Bavarian food alongside tasty regional Bavarian beer in a perfect historical setting. Let’s meet there and enjoy the Bavarian spirit together.

Friday afternoon event

For Friday afternoon, you have the choice between visiting different places:

We organized a guided tour (in englisch) at the St. Peter Church and the surrounding historical graveyard. The Church was was built in the second half of the 12th century, and is distinguished by its two sculpted portals. The surrounding graveyard contains a number of funeral chapels, most notably the Totenkapelle, which is decorated with a cycle of paintings depicting the Totentanz (Dance of the Dead) by the Rococo artist Felix Hözl.

Alternatively you can get a tour at the Campus for Biotechnology and Sustainability of the Technical University of Munich. There you can see the growing campus and theupcoming new buildings, including the NAWAREUM (under construction). As an educational institution, the house becomes the central information and event location for the restructuring of energy and raw material supply in Bavaria.

As third alternative we offer a bus transfer to the Hafen Straubing-Sand. There you can visit one of the biggest cargo stopover places in Bavaria as well as the incubator for start-up companies in Straubing.
