Escape everyday life for a few days, get out and spend some time together: that’s a key motivation for many families. After all, living with children is not always easy, and between all the parental responsibilities, relaxed get-togethers are sometimes hard to come by. Therefore, it is all the better to take time for yourself and the family, to discover something new together and to leave everyday life behind for a while.
City trips are ideal for such family breaks. Good public transportation, numerous leisure activities and short walking distances offer the right conditions for a family stay without stress and activities for every family member. But like any other holiday, the city trip with children requires careful planning. Important topics like food (go out to eat or cook), laundry options or activities need to be considered.
Home Away From Home
A stay in a hotel usually comes with the comfort of not having to worry about anything. However, a hotel room usually does have very limited space and lacks the freedom of doing things like cook a meal, washing your laundry or playing a family game whenever you want. Having these options is very valuable when traveling with children. But it's just as nice to be able to sit back and relax - after all, you wanted to escape everyday life at home. At Adina, families can feel at home thanks to spacious apartments with their own kitchen, while at the same time enjoying the comfort and service of a 4-star hotel. Whether that means enjoying a game night with the children's home-cooked food or a joint dinner in the restaurant with fries and burgers - families have the choice and can decide for themselves how their holiday should look like.
The Adina studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments (two separate bedrooms in addition to the living area) offer the necessary space for the whole family without having to book two separate hotel rooms. So, parents can still watch a movie in the evening and enjoy the evening together, while the kids sleep in the separate bedroom. In addition, washing machine, dryer and fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher are a real plus point for anyone traveling with children! Parents can prepare baby food early in the morning or at night, and then enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the restaurant or take the baby food there with them.
In addition to a 24-hour reception, room service, restaurant and bar, as well as gym, sauna and poll (not available in all hotels), Adina Hoffer a wide range of services to make the youngest guests feel at home as well: Free breakfast (children under 12 years) and special children's menus, painting sets and rental game boxes and convenient accessories for the apartment provide families with many extras.
Highlights for the Whole Family
Thanks to central locations in seven destinations in Europe (Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Leipzig, Copenhagen and Budapest), the eleven Adina hotels are located within walking distance of popular children's attractions. In Hamburg's Speicherstadt, for example, a visit to the Miniaturwunderland, which continues to grow and fascinate not only its small visitors with its countless cities, landscapes and funny scenarios in miniature format, is worthwhile. Also, a boat round trip to the gigantic cranes of the Hamburg harbor is a highlight for the whole family.
If you are planning a city trip to the capital, you will find the Berlin Museum of Natural History near the Adina Berlin Mitte with the only original skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex in Europe - a must see for small and large dinosaur fans. But even the former GDR border crossing near the Adina Checkpoint Charlie is worth a visit especially with a little older children. In Frankfurt you can make your children happy in any case with a visit to the palm garden: In summer, the water playground provides a great cool down and the little train "Palmengarten-Express" takes you from A to B - ideal for hopping playgrounds. Especially great for little explorers is the EXPERIMINTA ScienceCenter, which invites you to touch and try out with its more than 130 experimental stations from physics, mathematics, technology and computer science.
