Conference Dinner in the MVG Museum
The conference dinner will take place in the evening of Saturday, 29 August in the Munich Public Transportation Museum (MVG Museum). Located in the protected heritage area of the central tram repair station, the former bus garage building has been operating as a museum since 2007. It exhibits not only means of public transportation but also repair tools, a history of transportation technology, changes in uniform-fashion and several other facts and figures about the history and development of public transportation. The unusual atmosphere of the MVG Museum will provide you with the opportunity to enjoy a "beautiful" meal and getting to know other conference participants. It will also be possible to visit the exhibits in the museum during the evening.
