"Berlin combines the culture of New York, the traffic system of Tokyo, the nature of Seattle, and the historical treasures of, well, Berlin."
(Hiroshi Motomura, US Law professor, 2004)
Berlin, the capital of Germany, is dynamic, cosmopolitan and creative. East meets west in this metropolis of 3.4 million at the heart of a changing Europe. Berlin is noted for its many internationally famous cultural institutions. It is home to around 420 art galleries, more than 50 theaters and more than 153 museums. Young Germans and international artists continue to settle in the city, and Berlin has established itself as a center of youth and popular culture in Europe. Berlin has developed a highly complex transportation infrastructure. Long-distance rail lines connect Berlin with all of the major cities of Germany and with many cities in neighbouring European countries. Regional rail lines provide access to the surrounding regions of Brandenburg and to the Baltic Sea. Berlin has two airports â€“ Tegel International Airport (TXL), and SchĂ¶nefeld International Airport (SXF). SchĂ¶nefeld is located south-east of the city centre and is only ten minutes from Humboldt's Campus Adlershof, where the conference will take place.
