During the Behaviour2023 conference, we offer several activites. Some of them require registration beforehand. Please see all the information below.

1. Food and drinks at a typical German Brauhaus

- Registration closed -

For those who are not seeking an adventurous end of the conference week but would rather have a relaxed and delicious time, we will organize a trip to Brauhaus Joh. Albrecht on Sunday 20th of August, 2023. This Brauhaus is a typical German restaurant with its own brewery in a charming building within the oldtown of Bielefeld. We will meet at 12:00 to taste different beers, some of them brewed by the Brauhaus itself, as well as some typical German food. You will need to pay 25€ at site, for which you can choose a meal from a specific menu listing a vegan, a vegetarian and a meat option of the same price range, and beer and non-alcoholic drinks in pitchers served for the group – meaning that you can try a bit of different beers without needing to down a whole pint (this does not include wine or spirits). Once the group’s budget is finished, you can of course try all sorts of drinks and foods from the menu at your personal cost. In case you have plenty of time and the weather allows, feel free to end the day and the whole conference in the nice atmosphere of the Brauhaus’s beer garden. This event is accessible for everyone regardless of mobility and you can even bring your children have a meal together with them.

Registration for this event it mandatory and binding, because we need to reserve seats. Since space is limited in the restaurant, registration is first come first serve. Deadline for registration is Sunday 30th of July. In case you have questions about this event or would like to ask for directions or a meeting point, feel free to contact

2. Group runs in the mornings

The „Heimat-Tierpark Olderdissen“ is a zoo embedded in the beautiful landscape of the Teutoburg Forest and has long been one of the most popular destinations in the region. The zoo is open 365 days a year and admission is free. Covering an area of 16 hectares, it is home to around 90 different Central European animal species such as beavers, numerous birds of prey, lynx, European bison, wolves and bears. Many of the species are nocturnal. For this reason, the zoo's own zoo school offers guided tours in order to bring visitors closer to these rather shy animals. Away from the usual rush of visitors, you can experience wolves howling or lure the otters out of their den with a small fishmeal. You will also receive interesting information about the animals and everyday life at the zoo.

The tour starts at 8:00 p.m. either on Wednesday 16th of August or Friday 18th of August in the entrance area (meeting point between the bear statues), takes about 2 hours and is suitable for children. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a leash. You can reach the zoo by bus (number 24, bus stop: “Tierpark Olderdissen”). After the tour, you can directly take the next bus back to the city center.

The zoo is largely barrier-free and accessible with wheelchairs, but due to the geographical location, some inclines have to be overcome. Flashlights are helpful but not essential. The cost of the tour is €10 per person, which have to be paid directly at site. Since the group sizes are limited to 25 persons, we ask for a binding registration via the following registration form. Due to the limited availability of guides we might need to close the registration for this activity in case there are more bookings than spots available. However, if there is sufficient demand, we will offer several tours at the same time. If you have any questions about this event or would like to ask for directions or a meeting point, please contact
