How do I get there?

The closest airport is Frankfurt. It's a 25-minute train ride to Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof from the airport or a 20-minute train ride from Frankfurt Central Station.

Is this the European DrupalCon?

No, there is no DrupalCon in Europe 2018 (it’s out on pause), but the Drupal community across 20+ countries in Europe are making a big conference happen in Europe in 2018. This is it, and it’s called Drupal Europe.

Can I help out?

Of course. Read more here and/or send an email to hello@drupaleurope.org.

Can I submit talks?

Yes, but not yet. A team are working on our website, and as soon as it is up and running we’ll be accepting talks and BOFs. Follow us on Twitter or sign up for our newsletter, and you’ll be among the first to know.

Can I buy tickets?

Yes, look above! :)

Will Dries Buytaert be there?

Yes, Dries confirmed in his Twitter post that he'll be at Drupal Europe.

Where can I stay?

There are a lot of hotels in Darmstadt, and we will do our best to create offers with them, but we can’t promise anything. Follow us on Twitter or sign up for our newsletter, and you’ll be among the first to know. In the meantime, check out the hotel listings on Google maps or Airbnb to get an idea of the accommodation available.


DrupalCon Europe is taking a break, but it was loud and clear that the European Drupal community needs an opportunity to meet, connect and share. Because of this, we decided to organize Drupal Europe (the biggest Drupal event in Europe in 2018) with a group of community volunteers in collaboration with the Drupal eV (German Drupal Association) and the Drupal Europe Foundation. We'd like to update you on our progress and turn to you for input.

We are hosting Drupal Europe September 10-14, 2018 in the beautiful new Darmstadtium in Darmstadt, Germany, only 20 minutes drive from Frankfurt Airport.

Some things that did not work well at DrupalCon will change, while we try to keep our favourite traditions. Reach out to hello@drupaleurope.org to get involved. We are super excited!


Our aim is to organize a sustainable event where people from the European (and global) Drupal community can collaborate together on tackling challenges and engage in order to make Drupal grow both as a technology and as a brand.

Our core values

  • Engage
  • Challenge
  • Grow
  • Collaborate
  • Community
  • Sustainability

What’s next?

  • Decide how to handle talk/session proposal and selection process
  • Marketing and Promotion — in the community and outside
  • Volunteer management — can some tasks be crowdsourced?
