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.
For those of you with children aged 6 years and over, who are looking for ways to keep your child(ren) entertained, here are a list of activities to keep school-age children busy in Berlin
We recently headed over to Wedding to check out a place I've been curious about for quite a while, the Labyrinth Kindermuseum! I squeezed in a few photos whilst there and thought I'd write a review...
There's no shortage of fun museums in Berlin, so while the weather is cold and dismal, it's a great time to explore what's on offer. I took Buzz Lightyear and Sheriff Woody to the Science Center Spectrum yesterday, and had a great time getting involved with all their interactive experiments. The boys are 3 and 5, so a lot of the 'science' behind the displays and equipment is a bit over their heads (and mine at times tbh, I've never been much of a science bod!), but nevertheless, taking part in all the fun stuff kept them entertained for a few hours.
I know I am not the only parent who has faces the dilemma of keeping two children of wildly different ages (and therefore interests and skills) happy and entertained, so I decided to write a post detailing good places to go in Berlin that appeal to children of differing ages.
Charlottenburg Palace (Schloss Charlottenburg) is located on the opposite side of Berlin to me, so I haven't been there much during my seven years in Berlin. This year however, it has become a much loved location for my family photoshoots and so, I have had the opportunity to spend many hours wandering through the beautiful grounds surrounding the palace. Following a recent photo session there, two out of three of my boys joined me for a stroll through the beautiful gardens for an hour as we took in the gorgeous views. I was tired after the shoot, so I didn't take a huge amount of photographs, just a few family pics really, but you can get an idea of the beauty to find there from them.
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.
As the title of this place alludes to, this museum is something rather extraordinary and...well...surreal. We headed there last Winter to check out it's rooms of objects, collected by passionate photographer & lover of all things unusual, Vlad Korneev and I'm finally getting round to blogging about our experience there.
Berlin museums come in all shapes and sizes and for all interests. For any gamers, those with warm memories of playing Donkey Kong or an Atari Lynx as a child, or those with an interest in the history of gaming, the Computerspielemuseum in Berlin is for you.
Berlin's Natural History Museum (Museum für Naturkunde) is home to a vast array of zoological, paleontological and mineralogical specimens. The popular Berlin museum also boasts that it houses the largest mounted dinosaur in the world. It is so large in fact, that it was impossible for me to get a full photo of it!
