i.e. it may be possible to set up some (GPS, Thuraya, etc.) antennas in that courtyard, if required.

Overview of Schedule

Also available:



Berlin has two active airports during OsmoDevCon2012: Tegel (TXL) and Schoenefeld (SXF). Neither of the two
is exactly close to the venue, so pick whatever works best for you.

From SXF you can take local trains (S-Bahn), switch at Ostkreuz into another train and exit at Jannowitzbrücke.
You will need a "Berlin ABC" ticket.

From TXL, you can take the bus 128 to Osloer Straße, and then change for the U8 and exit at Jannowitzbrücke. Alternatively, the TXL bus can drop you at Alexanderplatz, one S-Bahn stop away from Jannowitzbrücke. You will need a "Berlin AB" ticket either way.


You can take long distance trains to Berlin Ostbahnhof, which is only one S-Bahn stop away from Jannowitzbrücke, where c-Base is located

Public Transport

Check for maps, fares, etc.


There is some public parking in Rungestrasse where c-base is located, but it is always very crowded. Parking your car there is thus not recommended.


Berlin has tons of options, from very cheap to plush and expensive. Pick your favourite.

The closest low-end option in walking distance is the A&O Hostel Berlin Mitte, which has both a hotel as well as a hostel:

There's also Hotel Alameda a few more steps from the venue:

Spectrum License

We will apply for a regulatory permit to use 2 GSM 1800 ARFCN for test + development.
