People staying in Munich hotels may tire of the usual sight-seeing activities in the city and want to experience something a bit different.

If that is the case, then it is worth considering paying a visit to the city's zoological museum, the Zoologische Staatssammlung München.

The venue is hosting a special exhibition for Chinese New Year called From Buffalo to Tiger - Wood carvings for the Chinese New Year, which is free to view.

Starting on February 18th and running until March 26th, the museum is open Monday to Friday from 10:00 (local time) until 16:00 and could provide an interesting diversion to people staying in the city.

Ornate carvings of the animals that represent Chinese New Year will be on display to coincide with the celebrations.

There will also be a special event with guest speakers to open the exhibition on February 17th at 18:00.

Starting on February 14th, 2010 is the Year of the Tiger and the art works on show will no doubt mark that fact, as well as showing a range of pieces dedicated to the other 11 animals that comprise the Chinese zodiac.

Other creatures to be represented in the oriental calendar include the rat, the dog, the dragon and the ox.

To make the most of the From Buffalo to Tiger - Wood carvings for the Chinese New Year exhibition, you should consider booking your hotel München to avoid disappointment.
