Vintage Computing Festival Berlin (VCFB)

October 8th and 9th, 2022

The Vintage Computing Festival Berlin (VCFB) is an event about historic computers and computing technology. In exhibitions, presentations and workshops, participants from all over Germany and beyond present many different aspects of Vintage Computing. In addition to retro computers, also historical operating systems, programming languages, network technology as well as pocket and mechanic calculators will be shown. Most of the exhibited devices are in working condition. Established in 2014, the VCFB has steadily grown and has attracted nearly 3000 visitors in 2019. In 2020 and 2021, the VCFB took place as an online and hybrid event respectively.

This time, as far as the pandemic situation allows, the VCFB will take place in the Pergamon Palais of the HU Berlin in the heart of Berlin. If necessary, parts of the event can be moved online. We will keep an eye on the situation and inform you here if there are any changes.

Admission is free!

Larger map

The venue is located near Friedrichstraße in the heart of Berlin. In the direct neighborhood you will find restaurants, some of which may have cheap offers. It is not possible to sleep at the venue. For navigating within the building there is a floor plan.

Getting there

By public transport: Take the S- or U-Bahn to Friedrichstraße, then walk five minutes. The stop Georgenstraße/Am Kupfergraben of the lines M1 and Tram 12 is currently not in service due to construction work.

By car: Due to construction work on the track bed of the tram in front of the Humboldt University building, the access by car is currently very difficult. We recommend the use of public transport. Exhibitors can stop in front of the venue for loading and unloading only. A parking garage is available in Dorotheenstraße 30 (maximum height 1.90 meters).
