Hi everyone, A couple days ago, during my stay in Berlin, I got to visit a very famous museum. The Natural History Museum of Berlin, of course! The expo's are amazing. I took so many pictures of everything! I'll only show a handful though, because I don't want to spoil the whole thing in case one of you has the opportunity to visit it. These are just some tasters to make you want to go there! Enjoy the quick virtual tour! Max
Hey everyone, This New Year we will be going to Berlin, and we'll stay a few days there to visit the city and the area. If possible, we would like to do some fossil hunting one day. Does anyone know of any good, still accessible locations not too far from there? This time of the year it's really cold (in The Hague it's already freezing, and Berlin is probably twice as cold due to it being much more inland), and I wouldn't be too surprised if there is some snow too, so it would be good to know which locations are still relatively easy to access and hunt at under these conditions. I found this location nearby, Rüdersdorf, which seems accessible. I also found this one that is not too far away, Bad Freienwalde, but from the website it appears that parts of it are closed now? I also have no clue how the fossil hunting at these locations goes, so any advice on tools, techniques, where and how to look, etc would be really useful Preferably not a location that is much more than an hour's car ride away from Berlin please... @Ludwigia @belemniten Roger and Sebastian, I hope you don't mind me tagging you in this, I know you two have done lots of fossil hunting in Germany, maybe you have some tips you'd be willing to share? Thanks in advance everyone! Max
So, it's me again with another Museum. This time from Berlin / Germany, visited on 14 August 2018 And Berlin is all about the BIG guys. Let's go: Giraffatitan brancai (it's still labeled in the museum as Brachiosaurus brancai) The tallest mouted skelleton in the world (43 ft 6 in) Diplodocus carnegii Dicraeosaurus hansemanni Kentrosaurus aethiopicus Tyrannosaurus Rex Mounted replika skull. The real skull is in a seperate showcase, because it's too heavy (like with Sue) Elaphrosaurus bambergi Dysalotosaurus lettowvorbecki Allosaurus fragilis I think that is a very interesting idea with the real head. It gives a better understanding what these creatures looked like. Archaeopteryx lithographica (yes thats the real one right there) Dracorex hogwartsia Rhamphorhynchus muensteri Anyone needs a Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth? You can buy one at the museum for 2700 $ And lots of fish
