World Congress Banquet

Thursday, 03-08-2006
We couldn't bring the 5th World Congress on Biomechanics to the Oktoberfest, so we have brought Munich's world-famous beer festival to the World Congress. Join us in the celebrated Löwenbräu Beer Hall for a night of Bavarian festivities, hearty food and our legendary beer! If you don't enjoy beer, there will be a variety of non-alcoholic beverages available; if you are vegetarian or follow a special dietary plan, just let us know in advance. There will be something for everyone-music, entertainment - the whole atmosphere of the Munich Oktober-fest just for the participants of the World Congress and their partners.

Start: 19.00h
