The dream of flying
In the Dornier Museum Friedrichshafen, you and your loved ones will be guided through 100 years of aerospace history. In the immediate vicinity of Lake Constance Airport, you can admire, among other things, giant flying boats, nostalgic passenger aircraft and exciting exhibits from space travel. The highlight, however, is undoubtedly the twelve large Dornier aircraft, which can be viewed up close and from the inside.
The dream of flying also comes true in Friedrichshafen: The city attracts visitors large and small with the Zeppelin Museum, among other things. On a tour of the museum, visitors can view original recordings of historical events and marvel at original exhibits. After visiting the museum, you can go on a tour of the city.
The Skywalk Allgäu, one of the highest treetop trails in Germany, goes high. From a height of around 40 meters you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Allgäu Alps and Lake Constance. And of course you can also wonderfully observe the forest from up here from a completely new perspective.
Discover the flower island
Regardless of whether you are just spending a short vacation with your children in a holiday apartment at Lake Constance or relaxing in a wellness hotel, you should not miss one thing: an excursion to the island of Mainau, which welcomes you with a different natural spectacle in every season. While you are welcomed by around a million tulips in spring, you can look forward to hundreds of rhododendrons and fragrant roses in summer. In autumn more than 11,000 colorful dahlias bloom and in the cold season the island is transformed into a wonderful winter garden. While mom and dad look at the flowers, the little vacationers can romp in the adventure playgrounds or visit the petting zoo.
If the children cannot get enough of the animals at all, maybe a trip to the game and leisure park Allensbach should be on the program the next day. Here the natural landscape opens up in all its beauty. In the Allensbach game and leisure park there are not only indigenous plants and numerous animal species, but also tons of attractions. There is, for example, the nautical jet and the kart track that are just waiting to be made unsafe.
It also gets beastly on the Affenberg Salem, which is not without reason its name. At the entrance to the park, visitors receive a bag of popcorn, which they can then distribute to the local residents. Over 200 Barbary Macaques live in one of the largest outdoor enclosures in Germany and are waiting for their ration of sugar-sweet delicacies. Fun for kids and grown-ups!
A visit to SEA LIFE Constance is very happy, so you and your children can marvel at more than 3,500 fascinating animals in 35 natural pools. Immerse yourself with your children in the fascinating world of fresh and salt water fish!
