I was chosen along with some other colleagues to attend a conference held at the 4Star Lufthansa Hotel & Conference Center in Seeheim Germany located about a 35 min drive south of Frankfurt.
A small village is a 21 minute walk from the conference centre. There is a shuttle service to Frankfurt Airport for guests and you can jump on the train from the small village of Seeheim to get to Frankfurt for 5Euros from Darmstadt-Ebestadt Station which is 12min away from the Hotel.
The rooms are simple. The Hotel has a pool, spa, sauna and a small gym.
All the meals are included and the food is really nice. Lots of places to mingle and connect after the daily schedule. With the time of year over there… I don’t think there will be lots of hanging out on the decks. The conference kicks off Monday March 11th and wraps up March 13th on the Wednesday. Over 200 people will come from around the world from Lufthansa In Touch and Lufthansa. Our office will send 14-15 people who will try and fly out on the Friday evening before, but with March Break travelers we might not fit on the planes. I’m looking at moving my two weekends to either side of the conference so I can possibly fly out on the 5th or 6th so I have a chance to have a couple of days before and after to visit Frankfurt and some other city that I can travel by train or fly to.
Once I get my dates confirmed and my Duty Travel Flights booked by work… I will try and figure out where I want to go and the logistics of moving around Europe. I might be able to stretch this from March 5th to the 16th.
Ry X is touring during that time period so it would be neat to attend his concert since he has shows close by throughout the week.
I will document the trip using video from my phone and will probably bring my DSLR to capture some photos of the city and conference as well as my little travels before and after the conference before returning to Canada.
