Indoor activities in Bavaria: Exciting attractions even in bad weather

As the later months of the year approach, bad weather often follows. Autumn brings rainy weather and winter is usually too cold for a family outing. However, there are a large number of activities in Bavaria that families can enjoy regardless of the weather, subject to the coronavirus requirements. We show you our highlights among the excursion destinations in Bavaria in bad weather.

Excursion destinations when it rains in Bavaria – activities for all ages

Whether it’s for children or adults: every government district in Bavaria offers numerous options for day trips with exciting indoor activities. Our excursion tips include:

Toppels House: For creative minds looking for a really offbeat outing, check out Toppels Verdrehte Welt. This house near Wertheim in Lower Franconia is completely upside down and offers interesting photo backdrops in nine rooms. After the visit, the café serves delicious cakes and warming coffee as well as tea for the little ones.

Indoor Funpark Pleinfeld: Even in bad weather, there’s loads of action at the Indoor Funpark Pleinfeld. The leisure park in the district of Weißenburg-Gunzenhausen in Middle Franconia offers one of the most diverse repertoires of indoor activities in Bavaria with laser tag, black light mini-golf, karting and seven escape rooms.

Maisel’s Bier-Erlebnis-Welt: A special experience awaits beer lovers in Upper Franconia: Maisel’s Bier-Erlebnis-Welt in the Bayreuth district takes visitors through four generations of brewing tradition. In addition to guided tours of the museum, guests sample different types of beer and enjoy international cuisine in the Liebesbier restaurant.

Berchtesgaden Salt Mine: At a constant + 12°C and with a roof over your head, the Berchtesgaden Salt Mine in Upper Bavaria is a popular destination in winter or when it’s pouring with rain. An informative guided tour with mining explanations about salt is rounded off by the raft trip across the underground mirror lake. The 650 m long train entrance into the mine is followed by one of the two 40 metre long wooden slides, which are a fun highlight for all ages.

Alpspitz-Bade-Center Nesselwang: Even when it gets colder, swimming pools are among Bavaria’s popular destinations in autumn. The ABC Nesselwang in Swabia places particular emphasis on families. The varied offer in the adventure pool and the versatile sauna area thaw out frozen bodies, while the little ones let off steam in the children’s pools.

Please note possible restrictions during the pandemic situation in Bavaria. In addition to any mask requirement that may apply, evidence of vaccination, recovery or a negative coronavirus test may need to be provided. Please enquire directly with the respective operators.
