Family time is there to enjoy it!
The urban Kids, that’s us!
We are Carina and José, founders of a multicultural family (Bavaria meets Mexico) and since 2017 also of the urban Kids. Traveling, discovering new things and good food are our passions and that’s where the idea for the family platform with places that kids and parents like came from.
It was something like this: Together with our kids we were on the road. Beforehand, we searched for hours online where there is a nice playground for a break and where a child-friendly and yet nice restaurant is hiding. In the end, we were still standing in the rain with hungry kids! The “child-friendly restaurant” had just kindly pointed out to us that the stroller unfortunately had to stay outside and instead of a playground we quickly needed a bad weather program. A situation that you have certainly experienced before, but with our website never have to experience again! Because after that day it was clear to us that we had to do something ourselves and the idea for the urban Kids – together with a lot of tummy tickling was born.
Valuable family time for kids AND parents!
The question of where to go with children and get your own lifestyle interests under one hat, accompanies us since the birth of our kids. We want parents and children to enjoy precious family time to the fullest and recharge their personal batteries. And that’s exactly what our favorite places do best! Only places that really convince us make it onto the website in the end.
Our commitment to environmental protection and responsible travel
Sustainable action in all areas of life is a major concern for us. After all, we want to ensure that we leave our children and future generations a planet worth living on that they can enjoy as much as we currently do. While we have been shopping exclusively in organic food stores for years now, and while we primarily use bicycles to get around town and buy second-hand clothing, there is always the big question of how we can implement our sustainable actions on vacation as well. As I’m sure you know, around five percent of all climate-damaging emissions worldwide are caused by tourism alone. What do we at the urban Kids actually do for sustainability and environmental protection? You can read about it here.
