About the location Berlin

The metropolis of Berlin is not only distinguished by its unique history, but is also a melting pot of cultures and, last but not least, one of the major science and research centres in Europe. The Charité and its medical faculty, for example, can look back on a long and successful history that spans 300 years. Numerous Nobel Prize winners in medicine have taught here. Currently, over 7000 prospective physicians are studying at the University Clinic.

The Charité's first specialised clinic, the Ear Hospital, was founded as early as 1874. The Tinnitus Center at the Charité exists since 2001 and, with its research department, outpatients unit and day clinic, is now the largest specialized facility in Germany. The interdisciplinary team of the molecular biology research laboratory explores the molecular biological basis of tinnitus, as well as the role of stress and noise in the development of hearing loss and tinnitus.

Thanks to the extraordinary medical and scientific environment, Berlin and the German Tinnitus Foundation Charité are the perfect hosts for the 11th International Tinnitus Seminar. The Congress will take place in a traditional location: the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus in the heart of the Charité. This building was built in 1913 by the Berlin Medical Society with the aim to "promote scientific efforts in the field of medicine as well as to facilitate the exchange of ideas by personal intercourse and foster cooperative activity". These words reflect exactly what the organisers of the coming congress also expect of the ITS14.
