HOW CAN I SUR­VIVE SIGHT­SEE­ING WITH KIDS?

Where Berlin - - BERLIN MANUAL -

Sight­see­ing and chil­dren aren’t al­ways a good match, and some­times the only com­pro­mise is to take lots of breaks be­tween mu­se­ums and mon­u­ments. For­tu­nately, Berlin has more than 2000 play ar­eas, con­ve­niently mapped on www.ihrspielplatz.de. Next to the Re­ich­stag on John-Foster-Allee, for ex­am­ple, is a huge play­ground where the kids can climb or dig in a big sand­box. A good place to go af­ter vis­it­ing the Wall Me­mo­rial in Pren­zlauer Berg is Koll­witz­platz, which not only has a week­end farm­ers’ mar­ket and cute shops to pe­ruse but also three play­ground ar­eas aimed at dif­fer­ent age groups. When in Kreuzberg, let the kids run around Vik­to­ri­a­park, then head to the park’s fab­u­lous Gol­gatha beer gar­den, where the ru­grats can let loose in the play­ground while you re­fresh with a beer (Du­den­str. 40–64, www.gol­gatha-berlin.de).
