Family-friendly activities: Things to do in Berlin with kids

Looking for things to do in Berlin with kids? You'll find plenty of them! Its unique history through the Cold War comes alive at the DDR Museum. Or take them to the Berlin Wall to see how something sad and dreadful is now a symbol of hope. But Berlin is more than history. Graffiti is seen as an art form (although you may not want to encourage it at home!), and there’s the Illuseum, dedicated to playing tricks on your eyes. Beyond the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag, there’s the joy of playing at Legoland and jumping on a trampoline at the Jump House.

Museum für Naturkunde: Visit Tristan the T-Rex and friends

See nature’s mightiest and tiniest. The Museum of Natural History takes the family on a journey from the beginning of time to today. Sit back on a comfy sofa and watch the Big Bang create the universe and Earth. The Jurascopes recreate dinosaurs, making you feel like you’re in Jurassic Park. Then go to the insect hall where tiny bugs are enlarged into models, so you can get a closer look. And for a fascinating thrill, there’s the Wet Collection, where thousands of animals are preserved in jars of alcohol for future study.

There’s a free coat room to store bags as they aren’t allowed inside the museum. There’s a café, but food and drink are not allowed inside. There are special discounts for families and children under 10 require adult supervision.

Gardens of the World: Stop and smell the roses, cherry blossoms, and pines

There is more to these gardens than plants. Aspiring botanists love the green delights from all over the world. There’s also a water garden with ponds, waterfalls, and a natural water spray. But for more active diversions, there’s a massive maze of over 1,000 evergreens to explore, as well as a cable car, toboggan ride, and playgrounds.

You’ll be happy to hear that strollers are welcome and recommended. You can bring food and drink, and there are restaurants and snack bars onsite. Closing times vary during the year, so you should check ahead as you plan.

Deutsches Technikmuseum: Explore planes, trains, automobiles, and science galore

The German Museum of Technology makes learning fun. In addition to exhibits of planes and engines, kids can climb inside to pull levers and pretend to conduct a train. Or they can try their hand at captaining a big ship in the marine simulator. Gear heads young and old can walk through automotive history from steam cars to modern road machines. Not into transportation? Then the 150 science experiments your kids can try at the Science Center are bound to captivate. They can learn how planes fly, how magnets work, what colors are, and so can you!

Strollers are allowed and available for rent, but you must check bags in the coat room. You can bring your own food and drink to the picnic area and there are cafés onsite as well.

DDR Museum: Discover the city’s history 

Even if they’re too young to understand, kids enjoy the DDR Museum. Fully interactive, visitors are encouraged to touch and explore all the exhibits. See how life was behind the Iron Curtain. There are authentic recreations of an apartment, a prison cell, a tiny East German car (complete with driving simulation), and even a kindergarten for kids to investigate. This may be the only time they see a rotary dial phone or watch a TV with no remote!

Strollers are allowed, although navigating may be difficult when there are a lot of visitors. It is better to go earlier or later to avoid crowds and the museum is open every day until 9 pm.

Jump House Berlin: Welcome to Germany’s biggest trampoline hall

Give your kids a chance to burn off some energy while having lots of fun at the same time. Jump House Berlin has around 120 different trampolines and is divided into zones to play various games.
