The Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus (located at Luisenstr. 58/59, 10117 Berlin, Germany) is our meeting venue for ADEE 2019. Named after Bernard Von Lagenbeck (remembered as the "father of the surgical residency") and Rudulf Ludwig Karl Virchow (known by many as "the father of modern pathology") it is home of the German Surgery Association and the Berlin Medical Association.
Located behind the Charité Hospital in the Chairte Mitte Capmus the venue is steeped in German history having served as “People’s Chamber”, the Parliament of the GDR. Since 2005 it has been renovated to become a purpose build state of the art convention centre.
Just a short walk from Berlin Hauptbahnhof (6 minutes) and a similar walk from the Naturkundemuseum. There are a number of hotels within a short walk of the locality but given the access via train and metro the entire city of Berlin is at your fingertips.

Charité is internationally renowned for its excellence in teaching and training. Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin represents a single medical faculty, which serves both Humboldt Universtität zu Berlin and Freie Universität Berlin. Charité extends over four campuses, and has close to 100 different Departments and Institutes, which make up a total of 17 different CharitéCenters. Having marked its 300-year anniversary in 2010, Charité is now one of the largest employers in Berlin, employing 13,760 staff, 17,500 if including its subsidiaries.
The Institute of Dental, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is located on Charité Campus Benjamin Franklin. Founded in 1884 as a dental institute of the Friedrich Wilhelms University in Berlin it can therefore look back on more than 130 years of university medicine. Since then, the training of dentists, the treatment of patients of all ages as well as the research of new treatments has become one of the main tasks of dentistry at the Charité . With currently over 500 students, the Centrum is one of the largest dental clinics in Germany today. You will get an opportunity to visit the school and view the facilities at our Wednesday evening social event.
