Lake Constance is one of the most child-friendly destinations in Germany and a lot of families choose to move here after they have kids. And it’s no wonder, thanks to all the green pastures and forests where kids can frolic freely as well as the many child-centric activities from parks to zoos and much more.
Kids will love this 20-hectare forest sanctuary where around 200 Barbary macaques monkeys roam around freely. All visitors get a handful of popcorn at the entrance and as they stroll around the marked paths, the friendly monkeys come by and stretch out their hands for a snack. Affenberg also includes a pond with water birds and carp, an enclosure with fallow deer and a colony of white storks who come here in the spring and summer.
This adventure park is the perfect place for active kids who like to spend their time climbing high up in the trees. The more than 300 stations up in the trees have plenty of ropes, ladders, poles and obstacles so kids can have a real adventure in nature. Of course, every tree climber is outfitted with a secure harness and hard hat and the park even has a special course for younger kids.
Sea Life Konstanz
Take a trip to the amazing underwater world at Sea Life, where kids can see marine life up close. With more than 180,000 creatures living in themed habitats, the park has a total of 50 aquariums and six sanctuaries including a Rainforest Adventure. From jellyfish to sea turtles, penguins to seahorses and sharks to stingrays, Sea Life makes for an amazing day of underwater exploration.
Lake Constance is known for its many beautiful and traditional farms and so an introduction to the local farm animals is a great activity for kids. This 15-hectare park has about 2.5 kilometres of natural paths that lead past enclosures with many animals such as boars, mouflons, sheep, lamas and deer. In another enclosure by the playground, kids can also get acquainted with turkeys, chickens, rabbits, goats and peacocks.
The town of Ravensburg is known for the Ravensburger company, which produces some of the best puzzles in the world. And so it’s no surprise that Ravensburger also has its own theme park, complete with more than 70 attractions including a free fall tower, a labyrinth, a 4D cinema, a kids’ driving school, a puzzle jungle and much more.
Pirate Boat Tours
Reserve a spot on this special 1.5-hour boat tour with the Lädine, a replica of a Middle Age era merchant ship. Kids and their parents will pretend to be pirates (complete with costumes) and try to solve a puzzle that will lead them to a golden treasure.
Wild- und Freizeitpark in Allensbach
This huge adventure park in Allensbach is chock full of attractions and even has its own little railway that allows guests to travel around the exciting premises. Apart from the park’s own falconry training site, it also has more than 300 kinds of local wildlife, a climbing camp, an adventure playground, a huge slide and much more.
Speaking of seeing creatures up close, check out the many reptiles at the Reptilienhaus in Unteruhldingen. Kids will be introduced to snakes (such as a very beautiful green mamba), iguanas and a very friendly Indian star tortoise, all of whom live in very meticulously created habitats.
