Venue & Logistics

Munich, Germany

Munich is the third-largest city in Germany and the capital city of the State of Bavaria. Even though excavations prove a much longer history, Munich as such was first mentioned in documents in 1158. Since that time, it has been the residence of numerous dukes, kings, and even an emperor. This history still shapes the face of Munich today in the form of numerous buildings, gardens, churches, and monuments. Museums, theaters, beer gardens and amusement parks round out the recreational offerings, not to mention the attractions of Munich's surrounding countryside. Munich is a place of culture and offers a cosmopolitan climate in which numerous international companies, especially from the IT sector, have settled. With four universities and numerous research institutes, Munich is also a center for research and development. We are looking forward to your visit in Munich during COSADE 2023.
