Prepare your visit


Depending on where you’re coming from, you might need a visa to enter Germany. We would like to inform you that guests and workshop participants are responsible for their visas themselves. You can obtain a visa from the German embassy or the Consulate General in your own country. Be sure to apply for it in time, as the application process can take up to three months.

The addresses of the relevant German Consulates with details on visa regulations and requirements for your country can be found on the website of the Federal Foreign Office.

If you are unsure about whether or not you require a visa, please consult the list of countries and their visa requirements on the website of the Foreign Affairs Office.

If you need any official letters, confirmations etc. in order to apply for your visa, please do not hesitate to contact us at
