The best travel destinations for each month ”or“ the most beautiful travel destinations for a holiday in Germany with children from travel bloggers ”.
Canoeing on the Mecklenburg Lake District
The Mecklenburg Lake District is also known as the Land of 1000 Lakes. A beautiful natural landscape with lush green forests and lots of water.
When Erik was a baby, I often went to the Mecklenburg Lake District with him. Summers in Mecklenburg are much nicer, warmer and sunnier than in North Rhine-Westphalia.
The many lakes around the Müritz are connected by canals and are therefore ideal for canoe tours lasting several days. You don’t have to worry about renting a canoe, because there are like sand at the sea on the Mecklenburg Lake District. Kanatu.de is one of them. On the website you will also find specific tour suggestions and can decide whether you want to go on a multi-day tour or simply rent a canoe and always move in a different direction from your holiday bungalow in the morning.
If canoeing is not for you, you can switch to bicycles, go hiking, visit the bear forest or the summer toboggan run and the monkey forest or take a trolley ride or … The possibilities with children seem limitless on the Mecklenburg Lake District.
Where to book On DERTOUR you will find family-friendly hotels and apartments.
Visit an amusement park – Legoland, Europapark, Phantasialand and…
There are now over 50 amusement parks in Germany. If you don’t have much time and want to spend an adventurous weekend with a lot of adrenaline and action, you don’t have to go far. The largest amusement parks even offer overnight stays in their own hotels and resorts. I tried the Tropical Islands with my son. The Tropical Islands is an artificial island in a zeppelin hall near Berlin.
The Amazonia outdoor area was recently opened. Now the Tropical Islands is no longer just a bad weather alternative.
The most popular amusement park is the Europapark. Located near Freiburg, the park offers an exciting program and over 100 attractions and shows. To see a lot, it is worth staying here. The choice of accommodation options would be difficult for me. In the Europapark you can spend the night in a knight’s castle, a Colosseum or a Spanish finca, to name just a few accommodation options. When you come out of the park, you have literally seen all of Europe.
Where to book You can easily book offers and tickets online at DERTOUR.
Go on a farm holiday in the Bavarian Forest
Vacation in the country is at the top of many families. Unfortunately, many children have no answer to the question of where the eggs or bread come from or where the potatoes and carrots grow. During a vacation on the farm, the educational gaps can be closed very practically – to touch and not far away.
The little ones can get to know the country life, watch the farmer at work or tackle things, milk cows or feed pigs.
Where to book You can find a list of farms in the Bavarian Forest here.
Biking on Lake Constance
The region around Lake Constance is ideal for spending relaxing and active holidays with the whole family. With smaller children you can explore the area on a boat tour and visit the many swimming pools, leisure and animal parks. With older children you can use the huge range of water sports or go cycling in the area.
Many travel providers offer special cycling tours for families with children. True to the motto, driving alone is stupid, the kids quickly connect to their peers. Such family bike trips usually last for several days and are so well organized that you don’t have to worry about a thing.
Where to book DERTOUR also has a suitable offer here.
Beach vacation and mudflat hiking on a North Sea island
Borkum, Baltrum, Juist are just a few of the beautiful islands that our North Sea has to offer. Fresh sea air, relaxation, miles of sandy beaches. The North Sea is only a stone’s throw away and can be reached by train from almost every corner. If you only have a small budget for family vacations and still want to go to the sea, I can recommend the youth hostels of the DJH. I was recently on the island of Borkum with my son. We stayed in a youth hostel for the first time and actually thought it was quite good. You can read about the prices and what a youth hostel has to offer for families with children in my last post.
