As international travel restrictions may continue and further changes in our events are possible due to COVID-19, we advise that you hold off booking travel or accommodation until necessary or book flights, trains and hotels with flexible options and favourable cancellation conditions.

For all courses and conferences at EMBL the Course and Conference Office blocks accommodation in advance to secure rooms for their guests.

It has come to our attention that various 3rd party housing services providers have been contacting our invited speakers, please see our Accommodation Scam Alert for more information.

EMBL has 17 partner hotels in Heidelberg (see table below), with whom we have close and long standing relationships. As these do not have availability for every EMBL event, please visit the Accommodation and Shuttles pages on each individual event website to see which hotels have specially blocked rooms for your meeting.
