Where is the Novalis Circle welcome reception and social event taking place?

The Novalis Circle welcome reception on Thursday evening is being hosted in the Brainlab Tower. We invite you to explore the top floors of the Tower, the Brainlab museum and Brainlab Clinic during the reception. With its glass observation deck the 35 meter tower served as the control center of the international airport of Bavaria from 1948 to 1992. The façade of the land-marked tower has been untouched, however behind the historic walls, hide unique and modern event spaces. The Brainlab Tower is one of the most beautiful and exclusive event locations in Munich overlooking both the city and the Alps.

The official Novalis Circle social event will take place on Friday at Gutshof Menterschwaige starting at 7:00PM. The dress code for this event is smart casual. Transportation between the conference hotels and the event location will be provided. If you are staying at another hotel, you can either meet the group at one of the official hotels for the departure time or you will be responsible for your own transportation between venues. There will be time between the end of the Conference day and the evening event for you to return to your hotel.

We’re looking forward to giving you a taste of Bavaria!
