Wikimedia Deutschland office tours


For the first time in years, we won't be able to invite you all to the Wikimedia Conference dinner snack into the WMDE offices, because we can only host ~200 people here. As we would like to offer you insights into where and how we work, encourage exchange and networking with our colleagues who won't be able to attend WMCON, and show you our magic cat wall in front of the Wikidata offices, we invite you to participate in one of our three office tours. No need to register for that, just come by our office and enjoy the tour.

  • Wednesday, 29 March 16:00-17:00, hosted by Jan Apel
  • Thursday, 30 March 16:00-17:00, hosted by Jan Apel
