We are very pleased to announce that this year’s DGfA party and conference dinner will take place on the MS Hamburg, a luxury passenger ship!

We will cruise along the Elbe while we network, eat and dance the night away. We will have a buffet dinner available all evening including plenty of vegetarian and vegan options as well as water and a cash bar in one of the ship’s large salons. In a second salon, we will dance under a starry sky to music provided by DJs TwinSet.

We further have direct access to a large outdoor deck that is spread across two levels, and all furnishings are barrier-free.

Boarding will start at 7:30 p.m., dock Brandenburger Hafen (Überseebrücke, 20539 Hamburg) and we will set sail at 8 p.m. sharp. The boat will briefly dock at 10:30 p.m. and then fully at 12:00 a.m. to let guests off the boat.
