Three hotspots for holidays in Bavaria
The school year has only just come to an end, and already the search is on for ideas to fill all the free time. Lots of foreign professionals and their families are now discovering Bavaria as a holiday destination.
The range on offer not only includes cities and royal palaces, mountains and lakes, but also big theme parks with plenty of action, fun and adventure. Here are three hotspots where you will not succumb to boredom.
The Allgäu Skyline Park offers over 60 rides and attractions for all ages, including the Free Fall Tower and the world's highest looping roller coaster, which sees guests hurtle upside down from a height of 50m, reaching accelerations of up to 5G. The less turbulent family favourites include wild water rafting, a slackline park, a toboggan run and a 4D cinema.
Offering plenty of fun and variety on an area of around 90,000m², the PLAYMOBIL FunPark in Zirndorf, near Nuremberg, is ideal for children aged 12 and under. What makes the park really special is its focus – not on rides, but on play stations that require visitors to get involved. The adventure park entices visitors with PLAYMOBIL play worlds on a large scale, a lake with children's paddle boats, a balancing course, a knight's castle, a quarry, Noah's ark and many other attractions.
Just 90 minutes' drive from Munich, near Günzburg, lies LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort, made up of both a theme park and holiday village: At LEGOLAND Park, you can discover live shows and models made from over 55 million LEGO bricks, covering eight different topic areas. This includes attractions such as LEGO CITY – the world's first ride using industrial robots. New attractions in 2014 also include the LEGO STAR WARS X-WING model exhibition; THE LEGO MOVIE, which can be experienced in full length in the LEGO Studios; and the chance to stay overnight at the King's Castle at the LEGOLAND Holiday Village. Take the virtual park tour to get an idea of what awaits.
