5 Things to do in Munich During the Summer with Your Family
Food & Drink, Culture
From underground adventures to experiences that are out of this world, Munich is packed with family-friendly fun during the summer months. Enjoy the best the Bavarian city has to offer with a stay at The Charles Hotel and get stuck into these fantastic things to do with your family.
Lions and tigers and bears—oh my! Hellabrunn Zoo has it all. In fact, it’s not just a zoo; it’s a beautiful nature reserve, just 20 minutes by car from The Charles Hotel. Founded as the world’s first Geo-zoo in the early 20th century, today it offers a wildlife viewing experience that’s more akin to a safari trip than your typical zoo. To make your visit extra special, consider booking a private tour or taking part in one of the many workshops or events this summer.
Harness your adventurous spirit and head down into the magical Salt Mine Berchtesgaden, where you can literally slide underground to see the “white gold” that awaits. See the sparkling Mirror Lake and walk through a mine that’s been in operation since 1517. Before you go, grab a bite to eat at the on-site Restaurant Reichenbach and a souvenir at the Salt Shop.
The brand new ESO Supernova offers an intergalactic experience for families. The state-of-the-art planetarium projects scientifically accurate 3D shows (in English and German) on its 360-degree dome, while the exhibitions and guided tours offer even more multisensory, interactive experiences about the wonders of our universe. Bring a picnic with you and when you come back down to earth, you can enjoy lunch in the sunshine in the picnic area.
Running from May to September, the Open Air Cinema at the Olympic Park is a must-visit for families fancying a movie night under the stars. Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2018, this is an extra-special season, showing some of the year’s best movies, from Avengers to Ocean’s 8, on its enormous al fresco screen. Enjoy it all from comfy deck chairs, with some delicious food and drink in hand.
A festival with culture, fun, and the environment at its heart, Tollwood (27th June–22nd July 2018) is an amazing occasion for the whole family. While there are ticketed events for concerts from everyone from Billy Idol to Earth, Wind & Fire, over 70% are free. This year’s program (its 30th edition) includes a whole host of theatre, music and circus performances that the young and the young at heart will love.
