THE PERFECT DAY FOR KIDS
So, what are your plans for today?
What can you do to keep the little ones (and yourself) occupied? We have a couple of ideas for you. Try them and see - we promise you will never want to leave! Fascinating illusions, the starlit sky or simply great places for relaxing - Hamburg has plenty of exciting places for the little ones.
MUSEUM OF ILLUSIONS
Nothing is as it seems - at least not in the Museum of Illusions. It has a "smart playroom" where toys will set the brain's cogs whirring while making the kids cleverer.
Where do you get the chance to lose yourself in the starlit sky? At the Planetarium in the middle of the Stadtpark, of course! "The Green Planet" is a classic - a 3D exhibition where kids can discover fascinating facts about the earth.
A real paradise for kids! Thre is a huge selection of sweets in all colours and flavours, featuring brilliant designs. Best of all, visitors can watch the sweets being made through a huge pane of glass.
In the Schanzenviertel there is a place where 6- to 14-year-olds can do virtually anything their hearts desire. Kids can discover, hide, be loud, romp around, get dirty and much more besides.
HATARI PFÄZER STUBE
The food here will set children's pulses racing. There are burgers, tartes flambées, fresh leaf salads, veggie burger, schnitzels and, above all, huge portions of chips with loads of ketchup and other sauces.
At Hagenbecks zoo, there is always something wild going on. The zoo was the world's first zoo to embrace animal enclosures without bars. And 112 years after it opened, a visit is still a special experience.
There is a jungle in the middle of Hamburg: giant snakes, insects, frogs and a few sharks as a highlight. Through the impressive panoramic window, we can watch sharks and rays serenely making their way through their habitat. The aquarium is located next to Hagenbecks zoo.
After a lot of sightseeing, you deserve a delicious meal: At the glaring red Feuerschiff you can enjoy typical Hamburg dishes with a great view over the harbour and the Elbphilharmonie. The ship used to be a mobile lighthouse and is at anchor at Baumwall, now.
