Opencast Summit 2023: Travel, Transport and Accommodation

Quick tips


We don’t have any hotel deals or did make any reservations for the conference. Berlin has a wide variety of accommodations. Take your pick.

While there are accommodations in near the conference venue in Adlershof, we recommend choosing something near city center instead since the evening events will all be around that area.

If you don’t want to be alone, several other community members are staying at Motel One Berlin-Alexanderplatz and Motel One Berlin-Hauptbahnhof. If you stay somewhere else and want people to know, feel free to post in Matrix.

City train routes and tickets

The easiest way to get from Berlin City Center to Adlershof is via train. Take the S9. You will likely meet many community members at Berlin Central Station (8:45am) or Berlin Alexanderplatz Bahnhof (8:52am).

A good choice for a ticket is the AB Berlin WelcomeCard 72h. If you stay longer, the AB 7-day card may be worthwhile. To get from Adlershof to the city center or vice versa, an AB ticket is sufficient.

However, to get from BER (the big Berlin airport) to the city (to Adlershof or the center) you need an ABC ticket.

For orientation, planning or to buy the digital tickets, you can use the websites of the BVG or the VBB or their Apps.


Use the usual communication channels for Opencast. Matrix should be particular handy for the conference. You can get the Element app for iOS and Android and join us in

Save the Date: Meeting of the German-speaking Opencast community

We are happy to announce that this year’s meeting of the German-speaking Opencast community, or Opencast DACH for short, will be happening as an in-person event. The meeting will happen on July 11-13, 2022 and will be hosted by Osnabrück University and ELAN e.V. in Osnabrück, Germany.

The first two days, July 11-12, will be organized as a regular conference, for which we will soon send out a call for participation.

Following the regular conference there will be a hackathon day on July 13 where we will likely cooperate with the German BigBlueButton community, as they are planning a meeting on the two days following our event.

We are really looking forward to seeing lots of you in person again and hope that many of you will attend. Expect more details about the event soon. Stay tuned!
