The University and Hanseatic City of Greifswald is located in northeastern Germany, and flanks the Baltic Sea. The old city center with three medieval churches and a historical market place is highly attractive for tourists, as is Greifswald’s harbor with its’ maritime flair. The landscape around the city, which was formed and developed during and after the last glaciation, is mainly flat, and hardly reaches more than 20 meters above sea level. In the wider surroundings, seven national parks and biosphere reserves are located, parts of which belonging to UNESCOs “Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and the Ancient Beech Forests of Germany”. One of the National Parks, the Western Pomerania Lagoon Area National Park will be visited in a post-conference excursion.
