How to get there?

The unique location

PIRATE Summit is not simply a conference. It’s a fusion of business, design, and art. The atmosphere is open, inspirational, and creative.

It takes place in one of Cologne’s most unique locations: Odonien – a scrapyard turned into an outdoor art gallery.

It is the perfect pirate location and offers enough space for robots, fire, conversation, networking, and fun.

Traveling is the biggest contributor to our carbon footprint

We already estimated the carbon emission of your journey and compensated them. But it’s always better to reduce emissions. Therefore, we recommend you to take the train when you are coming to our beautiful Odonien.

We created an account with DB and registered PIRATE Summit as an official event to make it easier for you to travel by train. Through this link you get the ticket for a fixed price, it will include the city ticket and your ride will be powered 100% by renewable energy.

If you are coming to Cologne from another country far away and flying is unavoidable you can help us by measuring the exact emission of your flight and compensate them with atmosfair.
