Erfurt, Germany

Nov 24 - Dec 1, 2019

320 delegates expected

University Students

At NMUN•Germany, delegates from colleges and universities all over the world will focus on pressing global issues while appreciating how a modern European city thrives alongside the region’s medieval and Cold War history. Modern Erfurt boasts one of the country’s largest Christmas markets in a historic downtown where the conference will take place amid the artisan chocolatiers and cobblestone streets. On cultural tours, delegates will visit the Buchenwald concentration camp, Wartburg Castle (a UNESCO world heritage site where Luther translated the bible into German), and the Point Alpha Memorial (a Cold War US observation post on the East German border, next to a portion of the Iron Curtain). The conference will be held in partnership with the University of Erfurt. Gehen wir! – Let’s go! Getting there: The nearest airports for international flights are Munich (MUC), Frankfurt (FRA), and Berlin Schönefeld (SXF) or Tegel (TXL). To get to Erfurt from the airports consult the Deutsche Bahn Website to book train tickets online. If you book well in advance it’s usually less expensive. The airport in Frankfurt is connected to a train station (FRA Fernbahnhof), so you literally just need to follow the signs to the train station and hop on the train. In Berlin and Munich you need to take a bus/metro to the main train station. The train ride is roughly two hours from all three cities.
