17:30 Port Museum - Guided Tour

The ports have always been Bremen's lifeline and have shaped the city's identity for centuries. In the listed Speicher XI warehouse, a museum forms the interface between the past and the future: it is part of the changing Überseestadt and conveys the development of urban planning as well as the activities of Bremen's port industry and the constant change and progress in all maritime areas.

19:00 Conference Dinner

Without any doubt, the conference dinner can be named one of the highlights of every LDIC. This year’s dinner will take place in the PORT Speicher XI. The restaurant is located in the longest building in the city, a historic cotton warehouse. Starting with a refreshing aperitif, you can enjoy international cuisine in a modern ambience with a historic flair.

There will be a bus shuttle from the conference venue to the Speicher XI departing at 17:00h. After the visit of the museum, you arrive the restaurant by a short walking distance.

For the return trip, you will have the choice to take our shuttle to the central station and to the university campus around 22:30h.
