Prepare your stay

Send back the registration form

Since the meeting capacity at Oberwolfach is strictly limited, we ask you to register to the workshop as soon as possible (either by email or by returning the registration form by mail). In any event this should be done not later than the deadline: about 9 months prior to a workshop and 3 months prior to a mini-workshop. Otherwise, the invitation cannot be held open and someone else will be invited. If you wish to come with accompanying persons, please let us know about this. We will inform you what accommodation we can provide.

Apply for a visa, if necessary

Please let us know as soon as possible if you need a special invitation letter for your visa application.

Special requirements

In case you have special needs e. g. are suffering form allergies etc. we kindly ask you to contact us as soon as possible, at least one month prior to your stay.

For any special diet like vegetarian, vegan or porkless food please inform the Guest Office staff in advance or latest upon your arrival.

We offer a variety of rooms for special requirements, e. g. rooms suitable for allergy sufferers or a wheelchair-accessible room. We can also provide you an oversized blanket.

Child support

We have a small number of rooms suitable for families, where we can provide a child's bed, for example. The Institute can help with finding and funding child support (baby sitting, child care arrangements), if necessary. Please contact us in due time prior to your stay in order to arrange this service.
