Congress destination Bielefeld – making meetings easy

Bielefeld is an ideal congress destination due to its excellent transport links, exceptional conference infrastructure and convenient location of all the relevant facilities in the city centre.

Bielefeld is the cultural and commercial hub of the East Westphalia-Lippe region and, with a population of 325,000, it is also one of the 20 largest cities in Germany. Founded as a trading centre in 1214, today Bielefeld is a young university city and an attractive conference location. The nearby Teutoburg Forest offers a range of leisure activities for those in need of rejuvenation.

Sparrenburg Castle, Bielefeld's most famous landmark, is well worth exploring. This medieval fortress is situated on one of Germany's most beautiful hill-walking trails, the 156km Hermannsweg. The Kunsthalle art gallery in Bielefeld is renowned for its high-calibre exhibitions and captivating architecture. From the historical ambience of Ravensberg spinning mill to the versatile Ringlokschuppen events centre or multi-functional Bielefeld Convention Centre – Bielefeld offers a wealth of conference venues to suit a wide variety of requirements.

The convention bureau of Bielefeld Marketing GmbH is the main point of contact responsible for catering to the individual needs of conference organisers and participants. Services range from finding meeting rooms and conference equipment, hotel bookings, participant management, catering and procuring artists/performers, hostesses and interpreters, through to providing information about Bielefeld and organising itineraries.
