Hiking leisure and vacation with children

What can you do with your children on Lake Garda??

We asked ourselves what we could do with our son on our next vacation on Lake Garda and did a little research online.
Here is our list for a holiday with children on Lake Garda. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • A ride on one of the Excursion boats that cross Lake Garda crossing is always a hot tip and especially suitable for almost all ages.
    In the high season it is important to buy tickets in good time.

  • With the Funivia Cable car from Malcesine to Monte Baldo.

The track is divided into 2 sections:
– Malcesine – S. Michele with 1512m length and about 400m height difference

Farm holidays with children on Lake Constance

    Sweet pea October 6, 2019 Augsburg & Bavaria / Germany / Traveling with a child2 comments

Vacation on a farm on Lake Constance with children – I honestly never would have thought that I would go on such a vacation. But today I would like to break a lance for this: a holiday on a farm on Lake Constance is really worth a trip! And the kids love the farm adventure!

Work is waiting in front of the Lake Constance farm idyll: wanting to make a quick decision at the end of Easter vacation to Lake Constance was not my wisest decision. However, the pregnancy keeps getting closer, and shortly before the birth I didn’t want to go on vacation with children (and Kegel) either.

Spoiler: We were lucky and found another two-bedroom apartment on a beautiful farm in the Lake Constance region, more precisely in the Deggenhausertal. During our family vacation with friends, the proximity to Lake Constance was important to us and the family friendliness of the farm. Luckily: The Franzenhof in Azenweiler is only around 20 minutes away from Meersburg and rents out 10 family-friendly apartments on their farm.

Family vacation on Lake Garda: amusement parks and water slides
Lake Garda welcomes families with children with a wide range of leisure options. Italy’s largest lake owes its reputation as a child-friendly travel destination not least to its leisure and aqua parks. A visit to Gardaland is a permanent memory for young and old. The oldest amusement park on Lake Garda, with its roller coasters, water shows and dwarf world, still lights up children’s eyes even more than 40 years after its foundation. A day at the Altominicio Acquapark in Salionze sul Mincio near Peschiera is no less amusing. Play fields invite you to romp and on huge water slides you can go downhill at a rapid pace. While the parents relax on the lawn, the little ones can splash around in several swimming pools.
