Strasbourg is home to the European Parliament and the carefully-chosen symposium dates correspond with the absence of any Parliamentary meetings. There are 78 hotels and 4747 rooms available in Strasbourg! We have special conference rates, but if you book very early, much ahead of the conference, you can get even lower rates.
The Symposium will be held at the Palais Universitaire, which is just across the river by the City, where most of the hotels are located. Hence they are all within walking distance. The closest is Regent Contades, at a stone’s throw (350 meters), and one of the farthest is Regent Petite-France (2 km). Depending on how fit you are, they can be reached within 5 to 20 minutes.
