NMUN • Germany - Erfurt

Journey back to Erfurt (video) with us for NMUN • Germany where 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. Possible cultural tour destinations include a visit to 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 U.S. observation post on the East German border, next to a portion of the Iron Curtain). The conference will once again 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). Trains to Erfurt from the airports take about two hours. The Airport Ground Transportation section of the Costs page has more details.
