City Breaks With Kids | Things to do in Munich With Kids

Forget what you think you know about Germany, The Germans are far more child friendly than we Brits can ever hope to be, and Munich is a brilliant city to visit with children…  Here’s my top ten of what to see and do on a first visit…

Visit a biergarten.  Not all that child-friendly you might imagine?  Wrong.   Most of Munich’s biergartens have brilliant playgrounds, a bit of live music and good food (and drinks for the grown-ups!).  Our favourites were the Hirschgarten, the Englischer Garten, and the Hofbraukeller (not haus!);

Englischer Gartens

Talking of the Englischer Garten, it’s a great place to let off steam, take a boat out, or spot the surfers on the Eisbach.  Yes you did read that correctly, and it’s quite a spectacle!

Eat some Spaghetti Eis at Sarcletti, pick one of the truly crazy flavours at the Verruckte Eismacher (Crazy Icecream maker!) or our absolute favourite, the wonderful True & 12;

Visit one of the biggest Science Museums in the World – The Deutsches Museum.   Or it’s sister Transport Museum, or it’s brother Flying Museum…

Deutsches Museum

Head to BMW Welt, the Museum by the infamous Car Makers.  It’s brilliant, kids can do workshops (if you book ahead) and you can even see new owners pick up their cars

Olympia Park is next door, and it’s a great place for kids to explore, plus it’s home to the Sealife Centre, and a trip up to the Olympia Tower is always fun!

Swim in one of the city’s Freibad’s. Munich can get hotter than you can imagine and the outdoor pools are amazing!

Poing – a wonderful wildlife park a short drive from the city.  Open 364 days a year, it’s wonderful all year around, and it has the best playgrounds!

Football Fans will definitely love a tour of the Allianz Arena, home to one of the world’s most famous football teams.

Take a train to one of the big lakes – these are Munich’s beaches!  We love ChiemseeEibsee, and Starnbergsee especially!

Art fans will enjoy the Moderne – it has something for everyone from Design through the ages, to the most bonkers art all in a lovely light gallery…
