A nice thing to do with the family is to rent bikes and simply explore the capital on your own. With wonderfully organized bike paths on every street, you can have a smooth and safe ride with your kids. The Museum Island, hosting museums such as the Pergamum Museum, is a marvellous central destination for the whole family to see interactive and fun exhibits. The road leading up to the Brandenburg gate is very open for pedestrians, and a good opportunity to show your kids the historic landmarks such as the Reichstag and the Berlin Wall. The Reichstag is one of the finest tours you can take, where you can show your kids a panoramic view through the dome atop the parliament building. Speaking of the Berlin Wall, take your kids to the East Side Gallery which is a remnant of the wall painted by artists and visitors alike. Let your kids make their mark, because painting by visitors is allowed on some sections of the work of art. The Holocaust memorial is even a great interactive way to pay homage and is fun for the kids. The unique architecture allows for kids to run around while learning about an important yet dark period in history.
After a long day of exploring wonderful city in Brandenburg, a great way to wind down with kiddies is a trip to one of the many kinder cafes. These are part play centers and part cafes, so parents and children can enjoy the funky atmosphere all the same. They are also great meeting points to connect with families from all over the world. A nice area of the city to enjoy things such as these is Pranzlauer Berg. Located in the eastern part of the city, it is a nice escape from the hectic center. With its tree lined streets and cobble stone paths, it is a great place to take the family on a stroll amongst the cute shops and cafes.
Berlin is one of the most culturally rich cities in Europe and is now becoming one of the most family-friendly destinations for travelers from all over the globe.
