The Schlosshotel Münchhausen (http://www.schlosshotel-muenchhausen.com) is located in the middle of a unique park landscape next to Hameln in the Weser Uplands near Hannover, Germany. The Schlosshotel Münchhausen is reachable by car or by the shuttle bus, which will start at different hotels in Hameln (length of the trip about 15 minutes for those, who are not accommodated at Schlosshotel Münchhausen - see below).

The Weser Uplands (German : Weserbergland) is a hill region in Germany (Lower Saxony, Hessen and North Rhine-Westphalia, between Hannoversch Münden and Porta Westfalica near the river Weser). The tales of the Brothers Grimm are set in the Weser Uplands, and it has many renaissance buildings, exhibiting a peculiar regional style, the so-called Weser Renaissance style. The region roughly coin-cides with the natural region of the Lower Saxon Hills defined by the Federal Agency for Nature Con-servation BfN.


Rooms at a reduced rate for the attendees of ICOLS 2011 have been blocked in the following hotels :

All hotels reserved are located near city Hameln. A shuttle-service to the conference site will be pro-vided. The General Terms and Conditions of the hotels shall apply.

Other Services

Beginning Sunday, May 29th, we will have ICOLS 2011 headquarters, registration and information set up at the conference site, Schlosshotel Münchhausen.

Social and Recreational Activities

Wednesday afternoon will be open for a variety of organized or self-guided activities and excursions. Additional programs will be organized throughout the week for accompanying persons. Hameln and the surrounding are offering a lot of distractions, including a number of recreational activities, such as swimming, golf, mountain biking, biking, tennis, health clubs, castles, wildlife parks, shipping, to name a few. Daytrips to Hannover, Hamburg or Berlin are possible, too.


Germany has a variable climate with frequent changes of weather from day to day. The character of individual summers and winters may also be very different from year to year, depending on whether oceanic or continental influences dominate. The temperature in June might be between 20 and 25 degrees during daytime with occasional rain showers.
