Berlin for families
If Berlin has anything, in addition to its nightlife and artistic scene, then it has its parks and districts that are really ideal for wandering around with the family, especially families with children. However, family life is not only limited to its parks as there is a large array of activities aimed at families and small children. Here, we would like to suggest a couple of places to go and things to do if you’re planning to visit Berlin with children.
Family activities in Berlin
All families that are lovers of winter sports will be able to enjoy what is now the traditional ski slope Winterwelt situated between the modern buildings in Potsdamer Platz. Families get together on this ski slope situated in the heart of the business square where they have also set up a Christmas market. They can go in into the warmth in the Christmas market and enjoy a glühwein (mulled wine), whilst the children enjoy typical Quarkbällchen (balls of quark, German fresh cheese), or makronen (coconut macaroons… simply delicious). On the Winterwelt ski slope (Winter Wonderland) you can glide downhill with the little ones armed with their skies or sledges. Truly a wonderful winter experience in the heart of Berlin for the all the family.
And what do you think about children building their own wooden huts, learning to light their own fire, working in the garden, and learning to look after animals in a unique environment? Children can enjoy this and much more in the Kolle 37, Children’s Adventure Farm situated in the heart of the bohemian and quiet district of Prenzlauer Berg. In this farm spanning over 4000 metre squared, children can experience a real adventure almost completely surrounded by nature whilst learning to work in a team, as well as enjoy nature and look after it. Visits are free, apart from special offers such as trips or excursions. Truly an adventure for children and families that plan to visit one of the most cosmopolitan and family orientated cities in Europe.
And if your family activity involves building something, then why not encourage their creative, adventurous, as well as constructive side? In Legoland, children as well as adults can enjoy this fantastic land of Lego, with the world of pirates, the adventures of Indiana Jones, the world of dragons, and the 4D cinema Lego Studios, where you can enjoy an animated film in 3D in addition to the feel of rain, wind, and snow…
Truly an experience that all the family will enjoy in Berlin. In addition, in Legoland there are workshops so that children can learn to build a fantasy world with lego pieces and they will able to learn how to build the most incredible lego. One of the most impressive worlds for all the family.
