Germany is a country full of playgrounds! Virtually every residential area has one, with the local municipality handling the necessary upkeep in most cases. Playgrounds are a great way to have fun and get some exercise, so don't be shy to get out there with your young ones and their buckets and shovels. They can then use the sandboxes, climbing frames, slides, seesaws, and swings to let off some steam. Meanwhile, Germany is also home to many amusement parks that are sure to get your kids excited. Along with the usual outdoor adventure parks, you can choose from a variety of nature parks, zoos (such as the one in Karlsruhe), and aquariums featuring every imaginable creature of the sea. In addition, numerous farm parks across the country can give your children a taste of living among cows, pigs, and fields of grain. But what if the weather looks set to ruin your outdoor plans? A trip to a museum can save the day, particularly with the movies and activities modern institutions now offer for kids.
