Each year, the Berlin Family Pass (Berliner Familien Pass) offers families a wide selection of discounts on activities across the city that you can enjoy with your children. The 2018 Berliner Familien Pass is no different.
Spring has sprung in Berlin and what a great city this is when the sun is shining! For that reason, I've decided to create a Bucket List of places to go and things to do this Spring in Berlin. Let me know how you get on and if you have any of your own to add!
Whilst Neukoelln may not be so obviously baby-friendly as Prenzlauer Berg and some other Berlin-neighbourhoods, it offers a fabulous mix of things to do with children including a plethora of playgrounds big and small, gorgeous little hidden gems, water ways and more. Here are my Top 5 Things to do in Neukoelln with Kids...
Just down the road from the gorgeous Wildpark Johannismühle, you will find this quaint like museum village called 'Museumsdorf Glashütte', a working village that has been home to the glass works since 1716. More information and photographs in the post...
Today we headed out towards Steglitz/Zehlendorf to visit Schlachtensee, one of Berlin's many lakes that I hear lots about. As we pulled up in front of the main entrance to the lake (just opposite S Bahn Schlachtensee for any of you who would go by train), it looked like we had stepped in to some sort of Canadian scenery. Beautifully epic trees, a gorgeous lake and of course, lots of people enjoying it on a sunny day.
Today we ventured out to Strandbad Wannsee, an open-air lido that features a long beach with cute wicker beach chairs (Strandkorb), a lake to swim/play in and the odd duck and swan swimming nearby!
One of the amazing things about Berlin is that you can get in a car or on a train, head out of the city and you are surrounded by dense woodland, beautiful fresh air and utter tranquility. It can be blissful after a busy week. We did exactly that last weekend and went to the beautiful Wildpark Johannismühle...
I visited FEZ for the first time and was amazed at both the center and the park that surrounds it. There's so much there to do whether the sun is shining or it's tipping it down with rain. Outside, there are a vast number of playgrounds for all ages and abilities as well as their being a variety of purposely built structures for kids who have a mission to climb. There's even a half pipe for the BMX/Skateboard fans so the older kids have plenty to fill their time with too.
Tropical Islands is set in a large dome, 35km south of Berlin Schoenefeld and boasts white sandy beaches, hot air balloon rides, a tropical rain forest, spa and sauna and much much more. It all comes at a bit of a hefty price though of course. Here is my full review of Tropical Islands in Kausnick.
