Reception and Welcome
Wednesday, 21 September 2016
19:00 – 21:30
Wasserturm (water tower) Lüneburg
Bei der Ratsmühle 19, 21335 Lüneburg
We cordially invite all registered participants to join the EMAN Reception with local bio snacks and beverages. The reception will take place in the historic water tower (“Wasserturm”) near the town centre of Lüneburg. This offers a great opportunity to meet other participants prior to the conference and to network.
The tower was built in 1907 by architect and town planner Franz Krüger from the remnants of the medieval town-walls. For many decades, the water wower accommodated the water utility of the town. The Neo-Gothic veneer of the Water Tower was adapted from Lüneburg’s brick-gothic style.
In 1985 the Water Tower was closed and the equipment scrapped. Just one of the elevated 500.000 liter water tanks remained until today. Shortly thereafter, the Water Tower was declared a “Historical Monument”. In May 1998 the Association for the water tower Lüneburg was founded and acquired the building for restauration. Once you have ascended, you will have a lovelyl view of Lüneburg and its surroundings.

Am Markt 1 (market place), 21335 Lüneburg
Preceeding the conference dinner we will enjoy a short reception by city councillor Markus Moßmann in the beautiful historic Town Hall of Lüneburg right at the marketplace. The town hall was built in the 13th-century and has been constantly extended and rebuilt for the last eight centuries. The front of the building is decorated with an elaborate Baroque facade. The town hall’s interior is artfully decorated and has been conserved since the Middle Ages. The reception will take place in the magnificent “Fürstensaal” (earl’s hall). The authors of the best young researcher abstract, extended abstract and best practice case study abstract will receive their awards in the Fürstensaal. After a short walk, enjoy German food specialties and meet other participants in a relaxed atmosphere at the Restaurant Mälzer (after about 19:45h). The restaurant is situated in an historic building which originally served as a brewery since 1540. The restaurant Mälzer is located in this historic building since 1997 and still hosts a micro-brewery. Enjoy the organic beer of Lüneburg`s last brewery or an organic soft drink with your research colleagues at the 20th EMAN conference!
