Berlin For Kids
Berlin is a great European capital ideal for a family holiday. The German capital offers a great offer to fulfil the needs and the desires of the children: special kids-programs in theatres, cinemas and museums, unforgettable walks on foot or by boat... Is there any other better way to keep them entertained?
If you want to share a cultural and funny experience with your children you will have to take them to any of the 170 museums specifically designed for them: for example, the German Museum for Technology, which has a beautiful real airplane and 14 different exhibition halls, including engines, locomotives, ships, airplanes and so on; another option is to bring them to the Nature Museum, which includes huge dinosaurs, always a hit for with the youngsters.
After so much learning, why not venture into the world of the living? The AquaDom is the largest aquarium in the world. There your children may try the incredible underwater World. Then it would be great a visit to the Berlin Zoo: it is the largest in Germany and the one which has the largest number of species
For the rainy days there are a wide range of funny options: children surely love the Imax 3-D Potsdamer Plazt Cinema. Then you can go to the indoor theme park Legoland. It is a park built with 1.5 million Lego bricks. It includes the chance for kids to test their creations on a car racing track or earthquake table, as well as a miniature city of Berlin built entirely from Lego. Both the 3-D Cinema, and the Legoland Park are located at the Potsdamer Plazt.
Maybe the kids are tired from walking all the day long. Then, everyone on board! A boat trip is the best option to discover Berlin without moving from your comfortable seat. Finally, you should not miss the famous Tiergarden Park - the biggest park in the city. There your children can run and play freely, while you rest or explore its more than 600 acres or have a coffee in the middle of the park. Rent Berlin Apartments for the best accommodation.
