As you know the accommodation in a field station is mostly basic. In the facilities we are based for this meeting, there are no double beds available. It is a place for youth, especially equipped for disabled.
MORE INFO on the accommodation of the meeting location is given below, but here is a list of alternative accommodation opportunities in the vicinity of the National Park or via the Tourism Limburg site (where to stay part). The closest is the beautiful Terhills hotel at 300m from the FRC. However still at 4km from home Fabiola.
We will have bikes available, but keep in mind that for most of these other facilities it will be more convenient to have a car.
The Field Research Centre Hasselt University does not own or directly provide accommodation, but has cooperative arrangements with other facilities. For this meeting we are making use of the group accommodation in the neighbourhood FAMILY HOME FABIOLA.
The accommodation facilities will also be used for most of the meeting activities during the day! Except for Thursday when we will visit the FRC, Ecotron and provide guided walks (see programme)
