Fabulous Day out for the kids!!! I highly recommend it for all ages. You must bring a lot of time as there is so much to see or spend another day. Best to park at Rewe shopping

The Senckenberg is one of the oldest and largest natural history museums in Germany with a great collection of dinosaur skeletons and early mammals. We went there first when our children were small, but enjoy coming back even without them.

I was surprised because It was very cheap (maybe because I went in the evening). Open until 8pm only on Wednesday. A nice and big collection of stuffed animals. Found it bit difficult to understand some things since most descriptions are in German only. Dinosaur...More

Hi, to 99% i think to remember that we used the credit card because like to save the cash for dining or whatever else. But you can call them too or have the hotel find out for you. To be 100% sure. 👩
