Indoor & interactive: learning has never been so much fun

Enjoyment, excitement and education are the buzzwords at Germany's indoor and interactive attractions, which not only encourage learning but also provide hours of entertainment and playtime fun!

Games, sport, fun and excitement – what counts is getting involved. 365 days a year and whatever the weather, in Germany there is no chance of getting bored. We have a wide array of attractive leisure options to choose from, with some specialising in specific activities or interests. And they are not only fun for children, grown-ups will enjoy them too! 'Edutainment' – learning while having fun – is a central concept at indoor play worlds, theme parks, science centres and interactive museums. These attractions offer something for everyone: fun and games for little ones, activity and adventure for older children, and peace of mind for parents. It is so easy to spoil children's enthusiasm for learning. If they simply read, learn by rote and recite, it will be – Physics - dull! Maths – no thanks! And biology – forget it! But if children are able to take a hands-on approach, try things out for themselves, experiment and use all their senses, it is a different experience altogether and the learning happens automatically. Why doesn't a space ship need sails? Can robots dance? Why is the sky blue? How does salt get into the sea? Questions like this challenge enquiring young minds. Interactive museums and science centres aim to provide answers to these and other questions. They cater exclusively for curious young visitors for whom the conventional code of conduct for museums – be quiet and don't touch – doesn't apply. Children are expressly encouraged to take a hands-on approach, ask questions and try things out. The fun factor is always high at Germany's indoor and interactive worlds – even for the grown-ups!
