Banquet

Venue 

Rhein Terassen is a restaurant with a nice view of the River Rhein and Cologne's city skyline. It is reached with a short pleasant walk (2.5km/1.5 miles) from the conference venue past Cologne's iconic cathedral and over the river via the Hohenzollern Bridge, famous for the numerous love padlocks attached to its fence. For those less interested in views and more into dancing, we have also booked a DJ for the event.
