Family days out – zoos, museums and more

familie1.jpgIn Berlin you can have fun with your family at any time. You can encounter animals in two zoos and in the new Sea Life Center in central Berlin. At the Filmpark Babelsberg, opened in 1991, you can find out how quadrupeds and avian actors are trained for movie performances. Many other attractions, such as the spectacular stunt show and the 4D action cinema, make a trip to Potsdam unforgettable for parents and their offspring alike. Another great outing for the entire family is the The Story of Berlin museum.

Berlin’s swimming pools and bathing spots

Dive in at the deep end or float on top – Berlin has plenty of pools where you can do either. With more than 60 public indoor, outdoor and summer pools, the Berliner Bäder-Betriebe (BBB) is Europe’s largest swimming pool operator with a wide selection of swimming areas from lakeside beaches to typical urban open-air and indoor pools. The BBB offers many more services. Most pools have a sauna and offer swimming les­­s­ons or aqua aerobics classes. At many outdoor pools, you can also have lots of fun playing beach soccer, volleyball, handball or basketball.
