I am bringing my family to Germany (staying in Munich) from July 16-22, 2013. I have a rough outline of our trip, and a few questions to ask readers. This one is about fossils. We plan to spend one day fossil hunting, near Solnhofen. I've located one place in Munich that can rent me an automatic transmission car, and I would now like advice on where to go. Every article I find in English regarding legal, public dig sites in the region say they exist, but they don't share specifics like name, etc. so I can look up directions or hours or fees. If anyone out there has gone fossil hunting in the area, I'd love to hear from you. We are amature fossil hunters, but we love it and we are respectful. The best site for us would allow us to come away with at least one small find, and the site would be suited to a family with a kid (ours is 8). Thanks!
