Please note that during the time of the conference Bamberg also hosts the state garden fair and the 1000 year jubilee of the Bamberg Cathedral. Both events are expected to draw crowds, so please book as early as possible. For this reason it will also not be possible to guarantee prices after 30 April. All prices include breakfast.

with rooms for 50 and 65 Eur per night including breakfast. For reservations, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , giving the name of the conference.
In addition, most of the large booking engines such as HRS, expedia, or travelocity have contract hotels in Bamberg. The rooms offered by these engines tend to be in the larger and pricier hotels. The hotel booking engine of Bamberg tourist information (link on top right corner of the tourist information's www pages) offers rooms in many smaller hotels which are not available through the large booking engines. Be aware that some of the hotels offered through the tourist information are outside of the city proper, so check the location first before booking since public transportation to the surrounding villages might be less than optimal, especially in the evening.
If you arrive on the weekend before the conference or leave on the weekend after the conference, because of the garden show it is very difficult to find accomodation in Bamberg. For this reason we have made block bookings in downtown Nuremberg, in a location from where it is easy to get to the airport and which is close to the touristic attractions of Nuremberg. We will organize transportation to/from this hotel to Bamberg on Monday morning before the conference and on Friday afternoon after the conference. Please email Edith Day at edith.day (at) sternwarte.uni-erlangen.de your arrival and departure times if you want to make use of this block booking.
