Location of the 7th Munich Symposium on Motivation

The 7th Munich Symposium on Motivation will take place in the Bavarian Alps again. This time, we chose a spectacular location at the foothill of Mount Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain. You will enjoy the beautiful panorama of the Zugspitze and the Eibsee, the little lake which gives the location it’s name: Eibsee-Hotel. The Eibsee-Hotel, where the MSM will take place in 2020 is close to Germany’s best known skiing resort Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Garmisch-Partenkirchen is about 90 km away from Munich and easily accessible from Munich Central Station by train. On your way to the MSM you will probably pass Munich, the cosy capital of Bavaria. Munich is also the place where Technische Universität München (TUM) is located. Here, Hugo M. Kehr and his team work on our shared research interest: motivational psychology.
