Family trip to Basel with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Basel There are so many interesting places in Basel that are worth visiting with children. One of the main children's attractions of the city is the Basel Zoo. This is the real tropics in the heart of the contemporary city, where among the exotic plants, lions, elephants and hippopotami walk freely. One of the most popular attractions among visitors is an aviary with penguins. In another pavilion, there is a pond in which marine fur seals live. The zoo is beautifully landscaped; its territory has a lot of cozy recreation areas and playgrounds for young visitors.

There is another interesting zoo in the city – Tierpark Lange Erlen. It is noteworthy for its arranged open-air cages, the demarcations between which are literally elusive. Special living conditions are created here for all animals, which are as close as possible to conditions of wild nature. Visitors to the zoo will be able to observe how storks nest, feed friendly goats and donkeys, and also get acquainted with other typical inhabitants of local farms. This is one of the few zoos in the world in which you can see a wild European cat – not all zoologists can keep track of this amazing animal.
For those who do not think these natural attractions are enough, it is worth visiting the Botanischer Botanical Garden. It is located in a beautiful historical pavilion. The children will love it here. They will be able to see a large glade with snowdrops, explore a rich collection of cacti, and watch the butterflies. This botanical garden was founded in the late 16th century. It is one of the oldest and most interesting in Europe. Copyright

For travelers who prefer to relax with children outdoors, the city park, St. Johanns Park, is in big demand. This park is quite small, but there are many sports and play grounds for children in its territory. There is a park on the bank of the river, so in the warm season, its visitors have one more interesting entertainment – steamship river trip.
BASEL Leisure in Basel should definitely be diversified by visiting popular museums. Not all tourists with children guess to look in the most interesting Jean Tinguely Museum. It positions itself as a museum of modern art, but its exhibits are special - they are made from unwanted old things and scrap metal. Many of the exhibits can move and are equipped by various mechanisms that will surely impress children. Next to this popular museum, there is a park. Part of the museum’s exposition is on its territory. Here, children can walk along the green lawns and see colorful sculptures that look more like large bright candies.
Each traveler can easily find a suitable place for rest in Basel. A great number of modern sports centers, shopping centers, zoos and amusement parks, noisy discos and energetic night clubs … Open
With older children, one can look at the Naturhistorisches Museum. A museum of science, which features an extensive collection of exhibits dedicated to the animal world. Here, one can see models of prehistoric animals, realistic stuffed animals, and skeletons of dinosaurs. In the museum, special cognitive excursions are held for children.
Basel There are shops in the city that will be interesting to visit with children. The young ones with sweet tooth will definitely like Laderach Clarashopping. It sells different kinds of sweets and other desserts prepared from chocolate. In addition to the different kinds of sweets, chocolate bars with rather unusual additives are also sold here. Adults can taste chocolate with pepper, while children will like pink chocolate with nuts more.
