The „Lion“ City
Welcome to Braunschweig (Brunswick): As the residential city of the Hanoverian Duke Henry the Lion and subsequent imperial city under Otto IV, Brunswick in the Middle
Ages was one of the most important German commercial centres in the heart of Europe. Moreover, it has been a technological and trade centre especially for oat, in the
recent decades, resulting in successful enterprises like Bühler is today. A great past giving great opportunities for the future - and the perfect place to get acquainted to
„our LION“ oat variety now.
You are our guest, but please organise your travel by your own. If you need support, please let us know.

PS: Please note that the conference language will be English throughout the convention. Translation services are not foreseen. We kindly request you to keep this in mind for your registration or guests registrations.
