Schloss Dagstuhl wishes to support parents who would otherwise not be able to attend our events due to a lack of childcare opportunities at home.
We offer the following childcare alternatives:
- Guests are welcome to bring a caregiver of their choice (spouse, relative). This person receives free room and board and is accommodated in a room together with the child and parent(s).
- Qualified childcare (for children up to 12 years of age) provided by our nanny. For Dagstuhl Seminars and Perspectives Workshops, the fee per family for up to 2 children is 100 euro for the whole seminar (60 euro for 3-day seminars), for other events the fee is 125 euro for the whole week.
Please note that our capacities for childcare are limited. Therefore, we ask that you only use our childcare if it is otherwise not possible to attend the seminar. This helps to avoid someone else not being able to attend because our capacity for the needed childcare has already been exhausted. For example, anyone bringing a companion should not use our childcare (exceptions are possible, but must be well justified).
Experience has shown that Schloss Dagstuhl is not suitable for a family holiday. Our centre is located in a remote, rural area and far away from any leisure facilities, which especially older children would look for. We recommend that accompanying families find accommodation elsewhere, e.g. near Bostalsee:
