Werden Abbey (St. Ludger’s Basilica) was a Benedictine monastery. Near Essen Saint Ludger founded a monastery in 799 and became its first abbot. The little church which Saint Ludger built here in honor of Saint Stephen was completed in 804 and dedicated by Saint Ludger himself, who had meanwhile become Bishop of Münster. Werden was a wealthy abbey with possessions in Westphalia, Frisia, eastern Saxony and around the abbey itself, where it had a territory of 125 km². For more information please refer to

The guided tour will take place on Wednesday March 25th 2015 18:15 pm.

Vegetarian participants will also be well catered with an enticing selection of seasonal salads, roast vegetables, sea-fruit delicacies and further vegetarian dishes. In order to make the conference dinner a special event a band will entertain you in this comfortable atmosphere.

We hope you will enjoy the variety of our Conference Dinner Menu!


How to Get There

REFSQ 2015 wants you to have a pleasant stay and easy ways to the different locations, so we will organise a bus shuttle that takes you to and from venue. After the last session busses will pick you up at the Atlantic Congress Hotel and go directly to the social event location. After the event, busses will pick you up again and take you back to the Atlantic Congress Hotel with an additional stop at Essen Main Station from where you have best access to the public transport system.

Shuttle Busses will head from the Atlantic Congress Hotel at 18:00 and back at 22:30 and 00:00. If you cannot or do not want to take the bus, you can either use the public transport system (about one hour) or come by car (about 5 km and 15 min).
