(Lisa Labriga, Association of Cities and Regions for Recycling and sustainable Resource management ACR+)

The increase in the availability of PfR has not taken place in all EU states, and this is especially true in Central and Eastern European countries. Moreover, the quality of the collected material does not always meet the requirements of paper recycling. The project is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme.

The venue is within walking distance from Munich Central Station. See how to find to the "Haus der Bayerischen Wirtschaft"

Due to heavy traffic and difficult parking it is recommended to use public transport (download this map, print it and take it with you):

The S-Bahn coming from the airport stops close at Karlsplatz (leave the airport with either S1 or S8, both are arriving after about 40 minutes; trains to and form the airport leave about every ten minutes). Exit the S-Bahn station towards Lenbachplatz/Ottostraße, follow Ottostraße until Max-Joseph-Straße (on your left). Walking distance from Karlsplatz is about five minutes.

Coming from Munich Hauptbahnhof leave the building towards Elisenstraße, cross Elisenstraße and follow it to your right towards Karlsplatz, pass Sophienstraße (on your left) and turn left at Ottostraße (Tram tracks), follow Ottostraße until Max-Joseph-Straße (on your left). You can also take the tram 27 towards Petuelring or tram 28 towards Scheidplatz for one stop (Ottostraße).


Hotel Information

There are many hotels in the central Munich area. Due to a competing trade fair not as cheap as usual but still reasonable (currently from 99 EUR incl. tax excl. breakfast) and right across the street north of Hauptbahnhof is Hotel Amba*** (

Here for the nights around the 2017 symposium we suggest you book yourself via the hotel website; we were not able to negotiate rates that are even better. Prices on the hotel's website are always 10 % below the rates on HRS or other booking sites.

From this hotel you can walk to the venue within less than 15 minutes.
