Any suggestions for the kids (7 & 9) or obscure sites?

Jump to last reply

Our family of 4 is back at it again! We spent about 7 weeks in Europe in 2011 and are back for more with older kids (2 girls, 7 & 9). Here's a brief outline of our summer 2014 itinerary with a few explanations. Hotels are set so we are looking to fill our days with fun! We have been to Europe many times and are most happy taking in local culture, food, and beer! We love Europe's parks, pools, theme parks, luges, and infrastructure. Sometimes it can be hard to find the best places. I should mention that we are budget travelers. The most expensive place we are staying is 125 Euro per night. We do not stay in hostels but prefer small family-run places.

Iceland - 1 night stop-over. Blue Lagoon or "local" public pool with waterslides. That is the question...

Frankfurt area - 3 nights with family. Haven't researched this area very much. Intend to get over jet-lag here.

Munich - 3 nights. Will pick up BMW at Welt on last day. (Our second European delivery. We did a 3 year lease and will do another one.)

Reisbach - 2 nights. This is a little town about 90 miles NE of Munich. Our quest here is to visit Bayern Amusement Park. DH might escape to BMW factory in Dingolfing. There also seem to be a couple luges in the area and a cool glass factory where kids can blow their own piece. Joska glass is the place we have in mind.

Prague - 5 nights. We have an apartment for this stay. I found the kidsinprague.com site to be very helpful. DH and I have spent nearly two weeks here so we intend to do a couple day-trips and do off-the-beaten-path sight-seeing.

Warsaw - 7 nights. Visiting friends who live here. Will probably spend 2 of the 7 nights near Gdansk, Torun, or ? Our friend speaks Polish. Phew!

Berlin - 3 nights. We intend to park the car and leave it when we are in the big cities. We have never been to Berlin.

Adelsdorf - 2 nights. This little town is in-between Bamberg and Nuremberg. We are staying at a little brewery hotel. Again, many luges, swimming opportunities, and small theme parks (and beer!) around.

Bruges - 7 nights. Our friends from Warsaw will join us at a little farmhouse outside of Bruges. We stayed at the same place in 2011 and this was the number 1 spot we all wanted to visit again. We will take many day-trips using Bruges as a home-base.

Amsterdam - 3 nights. Another apartment here. Will fly home from Amsterdam and drop the car there. Haven't read much on Amsterdam with kids yet.

That got a little long. Sorry! I will continue our blog and will likely update it before we leave. http://familyineurope.travellerspoint.com/
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and ideas!
