Our venue this year is once more the amazing Estrel Hotel in Berlin. It features a large amount of rooms, restaurants, and a lot of convention space to roam around it. The Estrel offers a welcoming, home away from home atmosphere all set up for Eurofurence.
The Estrel Hotel Berlin is the biggest convention center and hotel in Europe. Home to 1,125 comfortable rooms and luxury suites, the Estrel offers us all the convention space we need and then some. Arriving at the hotel you enter through the spacious lobby which makes you feel right at home. The lobby has plenty of space to lounge around, meet up with friends, have a drink or just enjoy all the fursuits passing by. The Estrel has everything you need located within the hotel and convention center so that you’ll never need to stray far from the action.
Directly connected to the hotel is the Estrel convention center. Are you worried EF will run out of space? Worry not! This convention center features a main hall that alone will host 6000 people comfortably. In addition to the main hall, the Estrel has 60 more convention rooms for a grand total of 15,000 m² convention space.

Enjoy yourself while you wait for your food, as it is freshly prepared in the show kitchen. Portofino can be found in the atrium, next to the Sanssouci restaurant opposite the reception desk.
