    We discuss the conformal boundary of a warped product of two length spaces and provide a method to calculate this in terms of the individual conformal boundaries. This technique is then applied to produce CAT(0)-spaces with complicated conformal boundaries. Finally we prove that the conformal boundary of an Hadamard n-manifold is always simply connected for n ¸ 3, thus providing a bound for the level of complication of the boundary of such a manifold.
