Is sustainability important for you when choosing an event location?

Do you want to set an example for a change of thinking?

Then you are in the right place in Braunschweig. Leave the organisation of your convention to us and enjoy a clean conscience.

Environmentally-friendly and sustainable conventions

Two convention locations in Braunschweig carry a “Green Globe” certificate. This worldwide recognised sustainability certificate of the event and tourism sector assesses over 300 demanding criteria from the fields of sustainability management, society, economy and environment, and with this also considers the use of products and services which are produced in an environmentally-friendly and socially responsible way and are traded fairly.
These locations carry the “Green Globe” certificate:

Environmentally-friendly and sustainably on the road

Mobility causes a great amount of CO2 emissions. A factor which can be considerably reduced with the excellent connections to the DB railroad network and the local public transport. Braunschweig is easily accessible from all directions with Deutsche Bahn, and in the city the short distances lend themselves to walking.

No need for a car in Braunschweig

The best way to get around is on foot. From the Stadthalle and the Volkswagen Halle, the beautiful and lively city centre with its diverse gastronomic offers can be reached in just a couple of minutes on foot. More than 60% of the hotel beds are within walking distance of the large convention locations. And if you are in a hurry or if you want to experience nature instead of the big city centre, the buses and trams of the excellent local public transport will take you to your destination.

CO2-free travel with Deutsche Bahn

The Convention Bureau Braunschweig is happy to assist you in purchasing train tickets – including completely CO2-free tickets: Deutsche Bahn buys the relevant power quotas from renewable energies and feeds them into its electricity net. Alternatively, Deutsche Bahn offers an event ticket for convention and congress visitors at a fixed price which is reduced by up to 40 per cent compared to the regular ticket price.
