For rainy days in the city good advice is needed. Sitting at home in the apartment is no option, but the familiar places for families such as swimming pools or museums are usually very crowded cold or rainy days.
So that you have a great destination for the next bad weather day, check out our favorite life-safer locations.
Child-friendly cafes with a play area and/or childcare
Fortunately, Munich has a lot to offer in the field of family-friendly cafes or restaurants with a play area or even child care!
A rainy or just cold day offers the perfect opportunity to start the day in a cozy café with the kids. We prefer to go to Café Clara, to brunch at Brenner on Sundays or to Café Reitschule. For a more extensive visit, the Familyroom Café is our insider tip. Especially smaller children love it there. If the children are particularly active in the morning Turncafé is a good choice. While parents sip a delicious coffee, the children can test the pedagogically designed gymnastic equipment.
Indoor fun for children in and around Munich
Are you looking for a little action for your children in the rain in Munich and do not want to sacrifice your own four walls? Then it’s the right time to go to Wichtelwerk, a gigantic indoor playground. A visit to the mountain animal park in Blindham is also worthwhile, because in the SpielStadl of the mountain animal park, your children will have a lot of fun! If you want to entertain your children creatively, the Kinderkunsthaus in the middle of Schwabing is a great idea.
Insider tip for child-friendly museums in Munich
The Flugwerft in Oberschleißheim is an adventure for children. There, the small and large pilots can feel and admire the various flying companions from very close. The hunting and fishing museum is located in the center of Munich city center and is a real secret address for us. Even on bad weather days it is not crowded there. The public observatory is particularly interesting for children from 4 years on and leaves a great impression.
And even if the rain sometimes annoys and we would rather enjoy the day in the sun, could not express the words of Hundertwasser better:
EACH RAINDROP IS A KISS FROM HEAVEN
