Humour Summer School 2013
13th International Summer School and Symposium on Humour and Laughter: Theory, Research and Applications


With regard to accommodation, delegates will have to make their own arrangements .

There are several options for ISS delegates to find accommodations in Magdeburg. Although it would be desirable for lecturers and delegates to be housed in the same places to facilitate informal meetings and talks, it will not be possible to find one place that can accommodate such a large number of people. July is tourist season and Magdeburg attracts a significant number of travelers.

The following hotels and guest houses have been selected as options for delegates who want to keep their expenses low. They are all centrally located and can be reached either on foot or by a short ride on the tram.

Intercity Hotel Magdeburg
[Look for the early bird discount and / or the "Summer Sale" (25% off)] This is the hotel where the ISS12 senior lecturers will stay.

Hotel Ratswaage
[Look for the "Hot Deal"]
