Nicht nur historisch gesehen war der Monte Verità stets ein Ort der Begegnung, der Diskussion und des Austausches, sondern er kann auch in heutiger Zeit auf eine langjährige Erfahrung als Veranstaltungsort mehrtägiger Konferenzen mit bis zu 120 Teilnehmern zurückblicken. Bereits seit 1989 nutzt das Zentrum "Congressi Stefano Franscini" (ETH Zürich) den Monte Verità für Tagungen und zieht alljährlich hunderte von Forschern aus der ganzen Welt an.
Das Tagungszentrum Monte Verità versteht sich als umfassende Studieneinrichtung mit Unterkünften, Konferenzräumen, Restaurantbetrieb und Parkanlagen. Über allem liegt die kulturgeschichtliche Bedeutung des Hügels für Europa, denn viele gedankliche Strömungen des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts nahmen in der dortigen Künstler- und Vegetarierkolonie ihren Anfang.

"The conference 'The United Nations Security Council: Contemporary Threats to its Legitimacy and Performace' which the University of St. Gallen Law School (international law department) could organize at Monte Verità in May 2016 was a full success. As many testimonies on this page already say, the unique location of the CSF conference center and the professional assistance by the CSF staff greatly contributed to that success. We received a highly positive feedback from the fifty or so participants of the conference who came from Europe, the United States, Latin America and Australia. For many of them, it was the first time that they visited the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. So the site of the conference also contributed to making the linguistic and cultural diversity of Switzerland internationally more visible."

"Following the success of the first edition of the Systems Biology of Infection Symposium in June 2013, we returned to Congressi Stefano Franscini for our second edition this fall. The location overlooking lake Maggiore, the size of the venue, the quality of amenities and service together with the helpfulness of the staff all contributed to a very successful meeting. We received enthusiastic feedback from conference participants who came from around the globe. Being a multidisciplinary field, Systems Biology of Infection reaches out to a wide audience. The diverse scientific backgrounds and levels of expertise of the participants allowed for highly informative talks and subsequent discussions. Overall, from a scientific as well as an organizational point of view, we strongly recommend Monte Verita for hosting conferences."

I like to thank you in the name of all the participants of our workshop on "Climates of the past - lessons for the future" for a fantastic week on Monte Verità. Participants gave enthusiastic feedback on the conference, everybody was happy with the hotel, with the gastronomy on the Mountain of Truth. The conference center provides excellent infrastructure, the CSF team as well as the hotel team were both extremely helpful and very supportive. The evenings on the terrace will remain unforgettable for all of us. There, participants of the workshop could meet for informal discussions, for exchange of ideas. The beautiful long evenings we enjoyed during one of the warmest weeks ever in July reminded us on the importance of our workshop theme. Monte Verità is, indeed, a magic place to be !
Prof. Dr. Helmut Weissert, ETH Zürich, 2015
Our daring experiment for a historical conference on the very recent past could have ended in a total failure, given the hybris of the attempt. The fact that this did not happen and that our project to gain insights into what actually happened and why from 1980 to 2010 was sensed by the participants as a fruitful endeavor, has a lot to do with the inspiring "lieu de réflection" that the wonderful Monte Verità center constitutes. And to the sublime hospitality its staff has been offering us throughout our stay. Thank you.

"The Conference Center of Congressi Stefano Franscini on the Monte Verita is the ideal location for a conference. The spectacular setting on a hill high above Ascona, the excellent meeting infrastructure, and the very competent and attentive staff ensure the success of any scientific meeting. We received enthusiastic feedback from all our participants. The nice accommodation (most rooms feature a splendid view of the village and lake, many are located in an impressive Bauhaus building) and excellent food (all meals are served in the beautiful, airy restaurant) add to the memorable experience. It was the fifth meeting that I had the pleasure of organizing there, and I sincerely hope there will be more to follow."
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Langhans, ETH Zurich, 2014
"The conference center at the Monte Verità offers excellent opportunities for holding scientific meetings. The staff is very competent, friendly and helpful, the conference facilities are of excellent quality, the accomodation and restaurant are great, and the location at the Monte Verità is spectacular. The center offers all ingredients for successful meetings in a relaxed atmosphere, overlooking one of the nicest corners of Switzerland."
Prof. Dr. med. vet. Thomas A. Lutz, University of Zurich, 2014
„I am writing to thank you for organizing a terrific conference, one of the best I have ever attended. The choice of topics and speakers, and the setting, were just spectacular. It is rare to attend a conference where literally every talk was stimulating and provocative. I learned a tremendous amount and had the opportunity to make connections with scientists I had not meet before. The meal-time and poster conversations provided a wonderful catalyst for new ideas for my own research."

"For the 49th meeting of the AGAGE network (Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment) the Monte Verità proved to be an ideal location. By its compromise of being relatively remote but also being near the town of Locarno and Ascona it provided the ideal setting for the conference. Participants only gave positive feedback about friendly staff and about the location. We were optimally supported by the local hosts also in terms of organizing the conference dinner, which consisted in an excursion and dinner on the Isole di Brissago. I can only recommend Monte Verità and would like to return for a conference."
Dr. Stefan Reimann, EMPA, 2014
"Monte Verità was a perfect place for our international workshop (OrgN2014). The beautiful location, delicious meals, and friendly and helpful staff created a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere that contributed to interesting and stimulating scientific discussions. A great conference venue that we can recommend to everybody."
Prof. Dr. Doris Rentsch, University of Bern (CH) and Prof. Dr. Susanne Schmidt, University of Queensland Brisbane (AUS), 2014
"We had only excellent feedback about the conference at the Monte Verità. The participants greatly enjoyed the conference, both the setting and the organization, and also the meals were great. Monte Verità is also giving conference organizers a lot of help, and so even as organizers, we could enjoy the conference and participate in the discussions following the talks, usually quite long into the night. The setting is fantastic, and we can only recommend it to anybody who would like to organize a scientific conference."
Prof. Dr. Martin Gander, University of Geneva, 2013
I organized a conference in July 2013 at the Monte Verita with 50 scientists from all over the world. The one week meeting was a success, thanks to the staff of the Monte Verita. The hotel, which is also the conference center in located on the hill of Ascona with an amazing view on the lake, only 10 minutes walk from the village. The service at the hotel was excellent, great food and very helpful staff. It is definitely one of the best place in Europe to organize a conference.
Dr. Jerome Noir, ETH Zurich, 2013
"As a member of the international network i-Rec (Information and Research for Reconstruction, the World Habitat Research Centre of the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland organized its 6th International Conference on "Sustainable Post-disaster Reconstruction: from Recovery to Risk Reduction" which was attended by about sixty participants from Switzerland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the United States, Canada, New Zeeland, Australia, India, China, Japan, Iran and Nepal.
All participants were absolutely thrilled by the splendid and inspiring venue and by the superb organizational support that was offered both before and during the conference. The conference rooms were ideal for holding plenary and parallel sessions as well as side events and evening programmes in a scientifically inspiring and yet relaxing atmosphere. The very friendly managed restaurant satisfying the complex dietary requirements of people from many different cultures fully satisfied all participants and contributed not marginally to establish good contacts, establish new partnerships and develop new project ideas. The excursion to the Brissago Island was an amazing experience that we would strongly recommend to everybody.
All of the above led many participants to assert that it was one of the best international conferences they ever attended!"
Prof. Jennifer Duyne, SUPSI, 2013
"On the hills overlooking Ascona and Lake Maggiore, with nice accommodation, delicious food and smiley people to support us, our conference was a big success. We could fully concentrate on science, days and evenings, while enjoying the place.Thanks again"
Dominique Derome, EMPA, 2013
I have recently organized my fifth conference at Monte Verità. At each time I am amazed by the magic of the place. The view on the Lago Maggiore and the surrounding mountains, the park, the history of the place and the buildings they all convey a special energy and spirit that, together with the wonderful hospitality of the center, make each conferences such a unique experience. We enjoy science and have productive discussions in a intimate, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Something I recommend everyone to experience. Thank you Monte Verità!
