The Ring Cafe
The Ring Cafe opened on January 13, 1956. With 800 seats, it was the largest café in the GDR at the time. For 33 years it was the favorite restaurant of the Leipzig elite. In keeping with the mystique of our venue, we are recommending recreating the elegance of those days by wearing party attire. Since it is our 25th or silver anniversary we are suggesting a color scheme of Red and Silver.
After dinner we will be able to enjoy the Ring Café’s expansive dance floor to the music of a DJ. Unfortunately, the venue does not have an elevator.
Update: The block of rooms at the InterCity Hotel is filled. We suggest that you can book within the Leipzig Ring roads that surround the city center and will mean you are within walking distance of all our venues. Examples of hotels in the area of the InterCity are the Marriott, Adina Apartment Hotel, Big Mama, H2 Hotel and, for a splurge – The Steigenberger Grand.
Please contact and book your hotel directly. If you would like to share the breakfast at the InterCity Hotel, which is the hotel we selected as the headquarters of the event, you can purchase the buffet breakfast there.
There are convenient train connections to Leipzig from most nearby cities on Intercity Express and Intercity trains. Leipzig is also served by all the major bus companies.
Leipzig’s airport is the Flughafen Leipzig/Halle, a regional airport with connections to Frankfurt and Munich as well as several European cities. From the airport there is public transportation service to Leipzig’s central train station. There is convenient train service to Leipzig from the Berlin and Frankfurt airports. The Berlin airport is an hour and a half from Leipzig, Frankfurt is three and a half hours.
