With fantastic museums and gorgeous gardens, Germany’s financial capital has plenty to keep the whole family entertained. The perfect destination for a half term city break, these fun-fuelled things to do in Frankfurt will inspire and delight your kids.
Holidays in the MINISCHIRN at SCHIRN gallery
The SCHIRN Gallery’s littlest guests have a gallery of their very own—the MINISCHIRN. Structured like a treehouse, this interactive world of colour, shape, texture and form invites exploration and fun. During October, the gallery’s Holidays in the MINISCHIRN program hosts daily workshops where budding artists can get creative… and messy.
Get hands on at Experimenta
Unlike many museums, this innovative science centre actively encourages children to touch and explore the objects on display for a truly immersive experience. Young visitors will be absorbed by the engaging, interactive exhibits while learning about important scientific concepts.
Halloween at Frankenstein’s Castle
Where could be more suitable to spend the Halloween season than the castle that inspired Mary Shelley’s iconic novel? Just 45 minutes from Frankfurt, Frankenstein’s Castle is a spooky site that promises thrills and spills with its October Halloween program. Expect grisly horror shows around the castle grounds and a kids’ Halloween party each Sunday.
See the changing colours at Palmengarten
A fantastic green space where kids can run wild, Frankfurt’s beautiful botanical wonderland, the Palmengarten, is showcasing the best of the season’s horticultural highlights throughout October. The Flowers of Autumn show sees the Palm House transformed into a dreamlike landscape of colourful foliage, grasses and shrubs.
Make friends with early humans at Senckenburg Natural History Museum
A treasure trove of early history, the Senckenburg Natural History Museum has so much for kids and teens to get stuck into. Dinosaur skeletons, amphibians and birds—the whole ancient world is here. Over half term, the museum is hosting the world's most complete fossil human skull from Georgia, a staggering 1.8 million years old.
A smart sanctuary in the heart of Frankfurt, Villa Kennedy is the perfect family hotel. Our dedicated FamiliesRForte program for kids of all ages ensures our junior guests are just as pampered as our more mature visitors.
