Berlin and accommodation

We gathered some hotel options for you! Be quick, last year many hotels already had no space left in May...

  • Ibis Budget Berlin Kurfürstendamm This affordable hotel (starting at Eur 50/night) is one U-bahn stop or a 25 minute walk away from the University. Most of the core developers will be staying here.
  • Youth hotel Aletto Kudamm (starting at Eur 50) is walking distance.
  • Hotel Amelie is just a quick U-bahn trip away and is affordable.
  • Novotel Berlin Am TiergartenThis hotel costs about Eur 75/night but is very conveniently located at the closest S-bahn station. You do risk sleeping on the side of the train, though, that isn't fun.

If these hotels are full or not to your liking, you can use this site to find something close by the University.

Code of conduct

We want everybody to feel welcome at the event. Please be mindful of our code of conduct. Also, please note that there will be video recording. The conference is an open space, please be sure that you are comfortable with that. Of course, you can always ask people not to take pictures or video of you.

Last year

The ownCloud Contributor Conference 2015 brought 140 ownClouders to Berlin. Read our blog to learn more and watch the 2015 talks on our youtube channel.
