General information

Participants can choose between a congress ticket or a day ticket to attend the digital Historikertag. The congress ticket entitles the holder to attend all events of the 53rd Deutscher Historikertag. The digital conference platform will be open to congress ticket holders as early as September. With tickets of this type, meeting rooms, the exhibition and the digital library can be visited before, during or after the week of the conference. The contents of the media archive – including recordings of the opening and VHD special events – can be viewed until December.

A day ticket entitles the holder to attend all events on the day booked. It can be purchased for the days from the 4th through the 8th of October 2021. Access to the digital conference platform is limited to the respective conference day. Be advised that the platform’s user interface is exclusively in German.
