Family friendly travelling in Hamburg
Things to see in Hamburg
Kids of all ages will love a trip to Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg’s burgeoning Speicherstadt. This model railway museum is one of the largest in the world and is still growing. The journey winds through scale replicas of locations in Germany, Scandinavia, and America, with hundreds of trains covering thousands of feet of track, as well as an airport section modeled on Hamburg’s own airport. Have fun learning about the city’s past through the many child-friendly exhibits at Hamburg History Museum, or discover how previous generations of German schoolchildren lived at the School Museum, housing a classroom reconstruction from the early 20th century alongside many fascinating original artifacts. Younger children will love a trip to Hamburg’s famous zoo, which features pony rides, petting animals, and a huge aquarium. In inclement weather, head for Rabatzz!, a giant indoor play area where the kids can let off steam while the adults enjoy a peaceful break over coffee or a snack.
