Open-mouthed and wide-eyed: When you visit Berlin with children it won’t just be the little ones who gaze about in wonder. In addition to the many sights and attractions, the capital – one of the greenest metropolitan cities in the world – is very family-friendly. There are parks and gardens in almost every part of the city where adults can rest and relax while children can have fun. And Berlin is never boring, even if the weather is bad. A visit to one of the child-friendly museums is always worthwhile.
Seeing Berlin through children’s eyes: the most suitable places of interest
Experience the best side of Berlin and take the kids on a boat ride through the historical centre of the capital. From the boat you’ll have a breathtaking view of Berlin Cathedral, Museum Island, the Reichstag, the Bundeskanzleramt (German Chancellery) and the Central Station. Afterwards, you can venture onwards to Brandenburg Gate once more or to Charlottenburg Palace, feeling well rested from the ride.
