With a number of lodging options and the unique travel expectations of our attendees, SPRAT has not contracted with just one hotel this year. This allows those traveling for this event the opportunity to choose their own adventure. There are two main areas closest to the meeting venue.

Worb
Although a smaller populous area, it is the most convenient to the meeting. Please find the two lodging options closest to the venue.

Hotel Löwen (≈100 m from venue)

Sternen (≈500 m from venue)

Bern
25 minutes by train, this city is more populous and includes varying lodging options to choose from. International brand hotels, boutique inns and short-term homestays are all available and can be identified through your preferred online consolidator.

On-Site Parking
All attendees utilizing auto transportation are encouraged to park at the public car-park located above the train-station (100m from the facility). Applicable fees will be assessed for using the lot.
