The best school holidays in Germany for children

In summer, life in Berlin takes place outdoors: the countless parks become sunny lawns and barbecue areas, open-air concerts fill the city with music and open-air cinemas thrill with blockbusters under the sky star. Both locals and visitors can let themselves be led or become active, the offers are almost limitless. The good weather during the summer months also provides fantastic opportunities for children to conquer the metropolis and experience adventures.

  • Bathing fun for little bathers

Popular summer activities for kids in Berlin often have to do with water, and not just because the outdoor pools invite you into cool water. Also the many lakes, which often have a beach on the shore and are supervised, allow unlimited wading pleasure. Not only the popular Lake Wannsee with its wide beach and shallow shore is ideal for children, Lake Müggelsee with its shallow water entrance also excites families. The waters south of the city have three official swimming spots.

Children can also get watercraft ranging from canoe to motorboat at the various rental stations. They can also rent pedal boats on many other Berlin lakes, such as the Tegeler See, and cruise comfortably on the water. The free water playgrounds, called “Plansche” in Berlin, are also very popular. In Friedrichshain City Park, elephants provide pleasant refreshment with a spray of rain from their trunks. In the Weinbergspark, Boxhagener Platz and Plänterwald, children can also let off steam with imaginative water games, operate the pumps and enjoy the refreshment.

  • Exciting tours for small animal lovers

Children can also experience Germany's only pandas in the Zoological Garden, while black and white bears are absolute favorites in the world's most species-rich zoo that makes animal lovers' hearts beat faster with okapis, rhinos, pygmy hippos and elephants. A farm where you can pet goats and ponies and an adventure playground provide even more fun. In the adjacent aquarium, children can see insects, amphibians and reptiles, in addition to extraordinary sea creatures.

  • Rural life in the big city

The metropolis of Berlin, which has several million inhabitants, offers young city dwellers many children's farms, where they can spend some time relaxing and getting to know farm animals and agriculture . THE   Dahlem Estate   was once a knight's estate, today it is run as an organic farm and offers many activities for children. Many parties attract with offers such as pony rides or carriage rides. In the former stable, the exhibition “Vom Acker bis zum Teller” (“From the field to the plate”) gives an exciting insight into agricultural and food culture. Butter production, bread baking or interesting facts about wool production are explained on the Lübars family farm. Children can let off steam in the neighboring adventure playground and amusement park.
