If travelling by car please be aware of the lack of free parking space close or near the Museum of Natural History. At parking meters you pay up to 2.00 EUR per hour parking time.
Close to the museum there are several new hotels with partial high expenses for overnight accommodation. By early booking via agent web sites (e.g. booking.com) it's likely to get rooms at convenient rates.Unfortunately our fossil group can't provide enough private accommodation. Nevertheless in certain cases private arrangements can be made.
