What you should bring this year: Bring your own…

  • Lanyards: For reasons of sustainability, we will again not be producing lanyards this year. We are sure that almost all of you have an old one at home, so please bring one and reuse it.

  • Water bottles: You can fill your own bottles (up to 1 litre) at our water stations (provided by Berliner Wasserbetriebe). The drinking water stations are marked with a "water drop" on the site map and are located at the food court in the outdoor area of the Arena Halle and in front of the Arena Club.

  • T-Shirt: Merchandise will be produced on demand. Shirts and bags can be printed and recycled on site. Bring them to our Info Point and get them upcycled.

  • Sun protection: To enjoy our sunny outdoor spaces, don't forget to bring and use sun lotion!

  • Swimwear: We have our own pool in the festival location with the bathing ship. So if you want to treat yourself to a little refreshment in between and go for a swim, don't forget your swimwear. (NOTE: Swimwear is also available at the bathing ship for spontaneous swimmers.)


Our main entrance is located at Eichenstraße 4. Within Berlin, we recommend travelling by public transport or bicycle. The S&U stations Warschauer Straße and U Schlesische Straße are about 15-20 minutes away on foot, the S-Bahn station Treptower Park is an 10-minute walk.

Our ten bike taxis, provided free of charge on all three days by our partner Sparda-Bank Berlin as a sustainable mobility service, will also ensure a climate-friendly journey. The shuttles will be waiting daily from 9-11am and 5-8pm at the nearest stations U-Bahn Schlesisches Tor and S-Bahn Treptower Park and will take you directly to the venue.

The festival location

To make sure you get to the programme sessions quickly and don't miss anything, you can find our location map here. Printed maps will be available at the registration counters and at the Info Point during the event.

Stage 1 in the Arena Halle is our largest stage, where you will see some of the highlights of the conference programme. Here you will also find our (headphone) Stage 2, the Lightning Boxes, our Makerspace and the boothes of our partners, as well as the re:publica Home Base.

Stage 3 can be found in the beautiful Glashaus.

Flutgraben e.V. is a non-profit art association and offers a lot of space for a variety of artists, groups and initiatives. In this sense, we dedicate ourselves to activist and artistic topics at this location and our stage 4 can be found here.

The Arena Club will be transformed into an immersive Media Parcours for #rp23. At the large outdoor area directly on the water you will find our outdoor stage The Beach, the bathing ship and the Hoppetosse.

In the Festsaal Kreuzberg you will find our second largest stage as well as the beer garden stage outside. Tincon will take place here on 7 and 8 June.

There will be a Kids Space on the festival grounds for playing, romping, breastfeeding or for rest breaks. At the bathing ship there will also be a small outdoor sandpit for children to play in.

New this year: Trödelhalle and Oberhafenkantine with additional venues for our programme.


re:publica has always been a place for engagement and responsibility, for emancipation and empathy in (digital) society. As an established major event, we are also aware of our special responsibility and want to make our contribution to a sustainable development of society - in programme and production. We want to make #rp23 as sustainable as possible for and with you. An overview of our sustainability activities can be found here.

Food & Beverages

Our food court with a large selection of food stands is located in the outdoor arena area. Drinks and coffee stands are also available in the Arena Halle, on the beach and in and around the Festsaal Kreuzberg. Please note that this year we will only be offering vegetarian and vegan dishes.

The festival grounds of re:publica 23 are accessible. A large part of the festival site is barrier-free accessible—the Hoppetosse and Escobar are unfortunately not barrier-free.
