There's something for everyone, with themed attractions that appeal to children, teenagers and the young-at-heart. Whatever the weather, these family favourites are the place to go for fun, entertainment and thrills.

Culture for kids? That's right, and nowhere does this better than Germany's worlds of discovery, which are always a hit with young families. As well as amusement parks, Germany boasts all kinds of themed attractions – each with something different to offer: you can see incredible film sets and meet cartoon characters and big-screen heroes at the movie parks, star-gaze at planetariums or go treasure hunting at a fairytale park. These eclectic attractions are like giant adventure playgrounds, keeping boredom at bay for all ages with their sensational shows, special events and guaranteed thrills and spills. You can walk through the rainforest one day, go to a water park the next, enjoy a spa or watch fantastic entertainment on stage. Everyone loves making a splash – better yet, one combined with a loop-the-loop. Now, at Germany's water parks, you can feel the adrenaline rush of a rollercoaster on a loop-the-loop waterslide or a spectacular tube slide. The dizzyingly high climbing parks guarantee fun for families with a taste for heights and adventure. Other attractions reveal the history of the Earth and the dinosaurs in vivid fashion. And where but at a wildlife park could you see native and exotic animals one minute and scale a climbing frame or whizz down a tall slide the next? But we won't give it all away here – take a look and see for yourself!
