The Tolk-Schau Family Theme Park near Schleswig on the Baltic Sea is Germany's most northerly leisure park. It is a huge hit with families with little kids in particular thanks to its animal enclosures and massive play areas.
More than 100 life-size dinosaur models call the park home, alongside live chickens, peacocks, tree frogs and tortoises. In fact, the way in which nature is intertwined with the 30-hectare park is all part of its charm. Where else in the northern German countryside would you find a boat slide, summer toboggan run, swinging ship ride, family-friendly rollercoaster and bumper cars? In "Dinosaur Valley", the Tyrannosaurus rex and iguanodon can be found lurking behind hedges and bushes. The barbecue huts are popular with families and groups of friends, who can use them to cook and eat together in the middle of the park.
