Outdoor Fun and Games


Playgrounds in Hamburg

If you have already seen the Michel or taken part in a boat ride across the Alster, it might be time to visit one of Hamburg’s great playgrounds. Here you can take a break and your children can indulge in some hard-earned playtime. In Hamburg there are many playgrounds that have modern play equipment, ample seating and large, clean surfaces. There are also often toilets and kiosks.

From the HafenCity to Langehorn, slides, monkey bars, flying foxes and sandpits await young visitors. But parents are also invited to kick around a ball, or to simply sit in the shadow of a tree, while their children rejoice and refresh themselves at sophisticated fountains. Barbecue areas, for example at the Sternschanzenpark, in Klein Borstel or in Winterhude, are great for going on a picnic, turning a trip to the playground into a real family day out.

Hansa Park

A wonderful destination for a family excursion is Germany’s only theme park at the sea, the Hansa Park. The park has made its maritime influences its theme, and this leaves its marks on the different worlds and attractions at the park.

There are a total of eleven theme worlds, from the colourful Children’s Land to the exciting Adventure Land, right up to the peaceful Hansa Garden, meaning there is something here for every member of the family. Over 125 attractions ensure a day full of new experiences. The aim is to discover all 37 rides. “Dr. Livingstone’s Safari Flight”, “Indian River”, “Pony Post” and “Odin’s Air Journey” are also suited to the smallest of guests. Your journey will continue to the Rope Garden, a rapid ride through labyrinth slides, and a treasure hunt during Gold Panning.

If you find that you need a bit of a break, you can refuel in one of the restaurants or rest your feet while taking in a show. The Hansa Park in Sierksdorf is about an hour away from Hamburg by car. Even easier is the arrival by train from Hamburg over Lübeck to the gates of the theme park.

Playing and Exploring in the Park

There are many small and large parks in Hamburg, that are not just ideal for long walks in the outdoors, but also for journeys of discovery. Large lawns and meadows are great for playing and letting off steam, whereas sparkling lakes are perfect for relaxing and rejuvenating.

In the Stadtpark (Municipal Park) in Winterhude, you will find, amongst other things, a large playground and a planetarium, a 70-metre high tower that promises great views as well as exciting afternoons with concerts, demonstrations and films. A number of bronze sculptures decorate the path to the planetarium, and cafés serve coffee and cake.

A magnificent garden of dahlias will delight guests to the Altona Volkspark between July and October, and children will have the most fun at the mini-golf course. If you feel like taking a boat ride, you can do so at the Harburg Stadtpark in a canoe, paddle boat or row boat, which can be hired on site. Öjendorf Park’s swimming facilities are also great for family recreation, as well as a Native American fort and a pony ride centre. In winter the park is perfect for sledding.

High Flyer

With the High Flyer, the littlest of visitors are made to feel like giants. The breath-taking views at a height of 150m will amaze children and adults alike. In the centre of Hamburg, your family can climb into the world’s largest captive balloon and look over all of Hamburg, the city and the Alster.

One ride takes about 15 minutes and can be partaken in every day between 10am and 10pm. However, the weather also plays an important role, and in bad weather the attraction is closed. The ride is free of charge for small children.
