The Dinosaur Museum Altmühltal in Bavarian Denkendorf (between Munich and Nuremberg, on the Autobahn A9) is a fascinating place for families, school classes and everyone who is interested in the development of ourplanet and would like to learn about it first-hand. Here, you'll stroll along a circa 1.5-km-long path through both the forest and 400 million years of the history of the earth. You'll encounter more than 70 life-sized reproductionsof dinosaurs and other animals from ancient times, some of which are solarge they reach the treetops.

In the hall of the museum, an authentic skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus rex ison display: Although "Rocky" was almost 10 meters long, he wasn't finished growing and is therefore the only teenage T. rex found so far! Other highlights of the museum are "Dracula" - perhaps the largest and heaviest flying dinosaur yet discovered - as well as an original fossil of the ancient bird Archaeopteryx. In the Dinosaur Museum, knowledge is conveyed through active experience. You can try to be a paleontologist and uncover fossils, which you can take home as a souvenir. Hands-on stations show how large, fast or strong the dinosaurs were and allow you to compare them to yourself. In this extraordinary, primeval surrounding every event - whether aconference, company party or product presentation - will become a real highlight that will inspire your guests. On 800 m² of flexibly divisible eventspace, there are no limits to creativity.
