Accommodation at the 2010 World Champs

This is a message from Kate Howard to Team GB Supporters.

It is with regret that I wish to inform you that I will not be organising any further Agility GB Supporters tours. For many and various reasons, I will not be travelling to Germany this year. I had organised several hotel options and have passed these on to the KC and will pass on the selected hotel information as soon as I get it.

You will need to fly to Nuremburg or Munich airports and car/minibus hire will almost certainly be necessary for transfers and daily travel as the venue is quite remote.

I do not know which hotel the KC has/is selecting but the problem with hotels is twofold. It is the beginning of the Octoberfest and the hotels tend to be small and homely rather than large and commercial. Getting small amounts of rooms is OK but large amounts are difficult. The best option seems to be to get to Amberg which, although seems further than some other places, is better served by roads in an area which seems very rural.

The hotels I contacted were:-
