GERMANY: Wiesbaden is a multifaceted city that offers a wide range of entertainment, especially for families heading off on a holiday adventure. And a stay at the new Adina Wiesbaden with its spacious studios and apartments fits perfectly into the family-friendly cityscape. So, if you're planning your next family getaway, here are our Top 5 Tips for exploring Wiesbaden with the kids in tow.
1. Get Up Close with Nature: The Animal and Plant Park Fasanerie
In the Fasanerie zoo, native animal species, such as cute raccoons or cheeky lynxes run amok, whilst red deer, mouflon, otters, bears and wolves give the smallest members of the family an insight into how these animals live and interact.
For children, there's a petting enclosure where smaller animals such as guinea pigs, sheep, or goats can be fed and stroked - it's an absolute highlight for the young and the young and heart. Top Tip: Make sure to visit the water playground in summer, you’ll find plenty of play equipment to romp around on. And, best of all, the park is free to enter.
2. Romp to the Max: Masulino Wiesbaden Indoor Children's Playground
A visit to Masulino Wiesbaden offers a world of adventure and entertainment that could easily fill an entire day or more. A fun adventure playground will light up your children's eyes, from crawling age to teenage years whilst parents can relax and quench their hunger and thirst in the in-house bistro. The playground's facilities range from bouncy castles and trampolines to climbing frames, and there's even a ball pool.
3. Bouncing Fun for the Whole Family: Superfly Air Sports Wiesbaden
Superfly is one of the largest trampoline parks in Germany and the only place in Wiesbaden that'll guarantee to keep the whole family stays on its toes. Those of you who love challenges, should try your luck on the obstacle courses but if that doesn't suit, there's a trampoline for all sizes and ages.
As you'd expect, Superfly is super popular with locals and visitors of all ages, so we recommend booking your session in advance to guarantee entry.
4. Enjoying the Best View of Wiesbaden from “Neroberg"
From the Neroberg hillside, you’ll have the most spectacular view of Wiesbaden but the fun starts at ground level with a funicular ride to the top. From April to October, the Nerobergbahn will take you from the valley to the top in just 3.5 minutes, but the rest of the year you'll either need to hike - it's a four-hour walk - or drive up the mountain. Once you've reached the summit, the cosy hilltop café is the place to warm up or cool down, depending on where you visit and offers pretty incredible views to Wiesbaden below.
In the warmer months of the year, we recommend a visit to The Treetop Climbing Forest, which offers more than 85 versatile climbing activities for young and old. Think self-guided, in air obstacle courses, ranging from easy kids’ courses all the way to the challenging “Treeman” deftly woven into the natural oak am beech forest. The practice and kids’ courses begin at 1.5m, the highest course reaches up to 24m.
5. Splash and Swim: Kleinfeldchen Outdoor and Indoor Swimming Pool
Whether you visit in summer or winter, the Kleinfeldchen Swimming Pool offers year-round bathing fun. In winter, you can splash around in the indoor pool; whilst the outdoor pool offers up plenty of water fun in the summertime. And best of all, there are separate children's pools, so every member of the family can splash out and have some fun.
