Starting from the subway station Dahlem Dorf (line U3, turquoise) turn directly right from the historical station building into Brümmerstraße and after 100m please turn left into Fabeckstraße, which you should follow 400m till your reach an open-area place with small cherry trees. At this point turn right and follow the wall, till you reach the corner of the building with two entrances (one on the right side and another one in front of you).
On Thursday please enter the building by the entrance in front of you and go straight ahead till you reach a corridor on the left, named Straße 26. Please enter it and walk on, till you reach a red carpet (coming from the blue one). After that you cross a big corridor and afterwards the room of the day will be the first one on the left, named JK 26 / 140.
In the afternoon there will also be a room change for the roundtable discussion (noted in the program). Therefore just go back on Straße 26 to the big corridor with the blue carpet and then turn left to follow it up through the open-air theatre atrium, reentering the building and just after a few steps turn left, till you reach the entrance of Lecture Hall Hörsaal HS 1b on your left.
On Friday just take the right entrance and walk through the doors of the Judaistik institute, till you reach an elevator on your left, which you should take to second floor, where you directly find room 2.2059 in the conference area on top of the building.
