Rocco Forte Hotels

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.


Hellabrunn Zoo


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.



Salt Mine Berchtesgaden


 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 from the on-site Restaurant Reichenbach and a souvenir at the Salt Shop.


ESO Supernova


Opened in 2018, 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. Let us pack you a picnic and when you come back down to earth, you can enjoy lunch in the sunshine in the picnic area.


Open Air Cinema at Olympic Park


Running from May to September, the Open Air Cinema at the Olympic Park is a must-visit for those fancying a movie night under the stars. Settle in to enjoy recent blockbusters, art house productions and even 3D cinema al fresco. Screenings are available in English and other languages in addition to German, and best enjoyed with a beer, wine or cocktail in hand.


Tollwood Summer Festival


A festival with culture, fun, and the environment at its heart, Tollwood (dates TBC 2021) 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. Each year, the varied programme includes a whole host of theatre, music and circus performances that the young and the young at heart will love.


Enjoy the very best that Munich has to offer during summer with a stay at The Charles Hotel. To book your unforgettable family holiday now, call +49 89 544 5550 or email info.charles@roccofortehotels.com.
