Activities in Lübeck Bay with child in low season
Summer, sun, Baltic beach? Not only in summer the Baltic Sea is a perfect destination for a holiday with the whole family. In autumn I find the Baltic Sea even more beautiful. Then, when the wind whistles, the autumn light makes the Baltic Sea shine in warm yellow tones and most tourists have already left. Extensive beach walks are so much more fun for me.
The Baltic Sea and especially the Lübeck Bay have much more to offer in autumn than wide, fine sandy beaches, impressive nature and fresh, salty air. Especially families get their money’s worth in Lübeck Bay. There is so much to discover and experience that a single holiday is not enough.
Lübeck Bay is located in the southwest of the Baltic Sea, only 100 kilometres from Hamburg and is one of the most beautiful stretches. During the autumn holidays we spent three wonderful, exciting days in Lübeck Bay. In this article I’ll tell you what we did in Lübeck Bay with Child during the autumn holidays.
Sunset Lübeck Bay
Strandastico – Children and Youth Artist Festival
In Lübeck Bay, children can learn exciting tricks and tricks from professional artists during the autumn holidays for seven days, each for two hours, and at the end of the festival they can perform in the circus ring for their parents. There are six different workshops to choose from, including acrobatics and tightrope walking, juggling and unicycling, aerial artistry and magic. Of course, the kids also get to know other children and have a lot of fun, while the parents can use the child-free time for romantic beach walks or a yoga course. Erik got a taste of the magic workshop and was very enthusiastic. Now he builds balloon animals like a pro.
Hansa Park – Germany’s only adventure park by the sea
A visit to the Hansa Park is a must if you are on holiday with children in the bay of Lübeck. Especially in autumn, a visit to the park is worthwhile. Shortly before the end of the season, the Hansa Park turns into a real sea of lights. The attractions are decorated with glittering garlands. The flower beds are decorated with pumpkins and illuminated figures. The paths of the park are decorated with shining stars. In the evening there is a beautiful parade of lights – a feast for the eyes. But we especially liked the Varieté Show. We were enthusiastic about the acrobatic masterpiece of the artists and were thrilled until the last second. But not only that, in Hansa Park there are countless rides and other surprises. But more about that in one of my next contributions.
Ostsee Therme Scharbeutz – Wellness with sea view
The Ostsee Therme is a feel-good paradise located directly on the beach between Timmendorf beach and Scharbeutz. Children can let off steam to their heart’s content on the two rapid water slides, the current channel, the saltwater pool or the large indoor and outdoor swimming areas. For the very young there is a large toddler water playground. Afterwards you can relax with the whole family in the gigantic sauna landscape. We especially liked the different infusions and body peelings. After the whey salt peeling in the steam bath we all had an incredibly soft skin. Very ingenious is also the sauna with sea view and the relaxation area with water beds. Those who have really heated up in the sauna can use the direct access to the beach and cool down in the Baltic Sea. The Ostsee Therme has so much to offer on its 14,000 sqm that you can spend the whole day relaxing, playing and having fun.
Small-scale agriculture – miniature world of field and fun
The miniature world of Field & Fun is a very good bad weather alternative! In Field & Fun, young and old tractor fans will get an insight into agriculture, the different tractors and vehicles and work processes on a scale of 1 to 32. With a lot of love for detail, you can look at life on the farm, different fields and pastures, new and historic agricultural machinery. After Erik assured me that he was already much too big for tractors and that he was no longer interested in them, it took us a long time to get him out of the converted barn. In addition to lots of exciting and instructive information about rural life, there is also the opportunity to control even the small vehicles on various SIKU Control playgrounds and slip into the role of a farmer.
At the very end of the hall there is an indoor playground with a large sandpit and children’s vehicles to drive yourself. Here the children can really let off steam.
Palm House Café
Just a stone’s throw away from Field & Fun is the Palmenhaus Café, awarded by Feinschmecker Magazin, with very tasty cakes and cake specialities. The café is a lovingly restored cultural monument belonging to the Sierhagen estate.
We were so enthusiastic about the atmosphere and the cakes that we had to come here a second time. The Palmenhaus Café is a glass house or a former winter garden, in which exotic, not winter-hardy plants hibernated, which adorned the count’s park in summer. The changing selection of cakes and tarts is madness.
Other attractions in the Lübeck Bay with children
These are just five of the many attractions that Lübeck Bay has to offer. In Lübeck Bay there are also numerous museums like the first German Banana Museum, the ZeiTTor Museum or the Hanseatic Museum. There is also a SEA-LIFE directly on Timmendorfer Strand.
There are numerous activities for children and the whole family such as geocaching, torchlight walks and other free events. Check out the calendar of events.
Lübecker Bucht mit Kind – Where to stay overnight?
There are numerous possibilities to spend the night at the Lübecker Bucht. From holiday apartments, beach-sleeping baskets up to beautiful hotels. We have tried the family-friendly Hotel Strandkind. A complete report can be found here.
