Our “Café Philo” is located in the Orangery and opens Monday until Wednesday from 08:30 a.m. to 05:30 p.m. Our coffee supplier offers freshly roasted coffee and prepares it on his traditional italian espresso machine. For congress participants coffee is free of charge!

Photo Exhibition

On the XXV. congress of philosophy by the DGPhil there will be an additional format to our usual programme: a photo exhibition. Our aim is to provide an alternative frame to discuss philosophical themes, on the one hand by encouraging people to produce philosophical photos and on the other hand to encourage people to talk about them during the congress.

The photos chosen by the organising team will be exhibited in the Orangery during the congress.

The vernissage of the exhibition will take place on Monday, September 6th, 2021, 04:00 – 04:30 pm.
