HIVE2012 will be held in the Langebeck Virchow Haus in Berlin. On October 1st 2005, the German Surgery Association and the Berlin Medical Association opened the newly restored Langenbeck-Virchow House in Central Berlin in a formal ceremony. The building, which was first inaugurated in 1915, is now once again available to professional associations as a centre for medicine.


Following the recommencement of the activities of doctors and medical associations in the Langenbeck Virchow Haus, the wish of August Bier expressed at its official opening in 1920, after the first world war, should be repeated:

"May von Langenbeck’s spirit also occupy this house. That is the spirit of true science, consummate medical skill, faithful fulfilment of duty, nobility, honesty, modesty and philanthropy".
