20th European Shin Buddhist Conference 2020

Tu 25th August – Fr. 28 th August, 2020

This is our present planning in form of an excel file (last update, October 2019):

At the third day we are planning a bus tour to the dharma center Anjin-Do in Mönchengladbach. On the way we want to make a stop at a local sight:
Auf dem Weg wollen wir eine lokale Sehenswürdigkeit besuchen: the Rocket Station (Langen Foundation) and the Museum Island Hombroich. The Rocket Station (Langen Foundation) was an American military base for nuclear missiles, which after the cold war was converted into a museum areal. The Japanese architect Tadao Ando created here a spectacular museum building. Not far away, there is the Museum Island Hombroich, where a modern museum complex is artfully incorporated into a Lower-Rhenish natural landscape.

Museumsinsel Hombroich

The programme of the above-mentioned Langen Foundation and the Museum Island Hombroich for August 2020 is not yet available. We will inform you about it as soon as possible.


We recommend two hotels close to the EKO House which are for a long time our partners. While booking, please mention your participation in the European Shin Buddhist Conference!
