Mage UnConference

It’s time for ’23!

Cologne, Germany, 29.09. – 1.10.2023

Thanks to everyone who made the last UnConference as successful as it was. We are happy about all the positive feedback and we’re looking forward to seeing you all again next year at the #mageuc23.

An UnConference makes the coffee break a principle.

Throwback #mageuc22

After all the years of Covid we finally meet again … and it was a great pleasure! Meeting people in person, having drinks, talks and a lot of fun!

Look back what you were part of or what you missed this year!

The Event Locations


Lokal Alte Feuerwache is located in a civic center – it is equipped child and disabled friendly. It offers a wide international menu at affordable prices and good quality in a friendly atmosphere for over 30 years.


Tor 28 is an event space used for very different kinds of events. Company events, workshops, exhibitions, cultural meetings and more find their home here. And so do we – at least for Mage UnConference.


Eigelstein-Torburg The Eigelsteintorburg has made a name for itself as an event location in more than 20 years for unique events with unforgettable moments.

Recommended Accommodation

Around the corner of Tor28, you find a youth hostel called DJH Youth Hostel Cologne Pathpoint. The building was a protestant church that now opens its doors to all kinds of travellers. It is located near to the central station.

COVID Restrictions

Please read carefully!

We’re enforcing the following rules:

  • You must be recovered from COVID OR be fully vaccinated (3 vaccinations).
  • AND you have to show an official “Antigen-Schnelltest” (antigen quick test). Please see our maps overview of official test centers around the venues. Understand that we will not accept “Selbsttests” (self tested) or completely untested attendees.
  • AND you have to provide a test even if you are “boostered”.

Important: Antigen quick tests will cost 3,– € per test (legally required in Germany). They must not cost more.

We do recommend that you test yourself BEFORE you leave your hometown. We would be very sad, if you get stuck in cologne with a positive test result!

On all our locations, you have to present a negative antigen quick test that is done within the last 24 hours. Positive tests or test results that are older than 24 hours will not be accepted. You can – however – also provide an negative PCR (NAT) test that is done within the last 48 hours.

Please understand that we will not let you attend the pre-party, the event itself or the aftershow party if you cannot comply with these regulations.

The safety of all of us has the highest priority!

We recommend to get tested on friday afternoon. This test will then be valid for the pre-party and the first day of the event. We recommend to have the second testing on saturday late afternoon. This test will then be valid for the aftershow party and the second day of the event.

Please bring FFP2 masks with you as these might be required in the venues. We will make sure you know when to wear an FFP2 mask on the venue with corresponding signage.

Important: We will verify your testing results with your ID card. Please make sure to bring your “Personalausweis”, ID card, Passport or “Reisepass” with you!

A complete list of all official testing centers can be found at the website of the city of cologne.
