Conference Location

The conference hotel

The conference will be held in the Danubius Thermal Hotel Margitsziget****, a newly renovated nine-storey spa hotel, offering a wide range of facilities, centrally located in the picturesque surrounding of the Margaret Island, yet far away from the noise of the city. See maps below.

Margaret Island (Margitsziget) is located in the middle of the river Danube which devides Budapest into two parts, Buda and Pest, so lying in the the heart of the city.

With its approximately one mile long island is in fact a huge park, with nice promenades, sport facilities, romantic ruins of the Middle Age cloister, and a few luxurious hotels.
