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

Cottbus is a great place to go for a family vacation. Here you will find both attractions and museums that would be of interest to each family member (Branitz Palace and Park, the Cottbus Theater, the PharmacyMuseum) and places for enjoying active pastime (all kinds of entertainment centers). Here you can spend time serenely walking through the park or doing active things (visiting entertainment complexes, cycling).
The main historical symbol of Cottbus is Branitzer Castle, which is considered to be a single attraction with the surrounding landscaped garden. Built in the 19th century for Prince Hermann … Open
The first thing tourists usually do in the city is going to one of the most famous zoos in the region. In Tierpark Cottbus, one can see a variety of animals inhabiting all parts of the world - tigers, porcupines, deer, penguins, camels, tapirs, pelicans, mice. As in any other German zoo, special attention is paid to animal care. Besides that, the number of fences is minimized in the park, due to which the audience gets the impression of going on safari. Well, this place leaves an experience incomparable with anything else.
Another must-have for travelers with kids is Tropical Islands. It is located in the vicinity of the city in the north, closer to the capital of Germany. This is a huge complex that needs no introduction, and even children know about it. Therefore, having found out that there is such a fantastic center just outside Cottbus, they will lead their parents themselves. Tropical Islands is divided into several zones: the “tropical village” (the area stylized as Bali, Borneo, Thailand), the “tropical forest” (where more than 600 unique plants can be seen), the “South Sea” (a huge pool that looks like an atoll), and “Bali Lagoon” (with fountains, water rides and artificial waves).

However, the city has one more pool called Lagune Cottbus. Of course, the scale of this complex cannot be compared with Tropical Islands, but it is still capable of bringing the brightest impressions. Both the smallest children and older ones never have problems with that. In addition to the pool, they can enjoy a jacuzzi, interesting water rides, sauna, spa, solarium. The complex is really beautiful, and not least for this reason parents visit it together with kids - it is fascinating from the very first minutes.
In the vicinity of the city, one can find another wonderful amusement park for children. Its name is Saurierpark. This dino-park is perfectly designed and decorated, the organization is top notch. It is located as if in a tortoise shell, surrounded by sculptures of dinosaurs and mammoths. Entertainment available here includes playgrounds, sandboxes, carousels, fountains, geysers. Kids will also appreciate the opportunity to play with ducks in a pond. Nearby is Irrgarten Kleinwelka, a fantastic green labyrinth.
1. The easiest way to get to the city is by train, as it is surrounded by a well-developed network of railroads and has its own station. Most trains arrive here from Berlin, which is just … Open
Have a great time walking in Fürst-Pückler-Park Branitz. When entering here it seems as if you're getting into another world. The park creates an incredibly wonderful mood. It is noteworthy that at different times of the day - in the morning, afternoon or evening - the park is always different. One of the main places of interest in the park is the water pyramid located on the "islet" around the lake, as well as a pyramid standing on land. Lakes located here make the park especially picturesque. Of course, it is worth visiting the Branitz Museum, one of the main city's attractions. Dining in a restaurant located on the territory of the park would be a great end to a beautiful day spent here.
Altmarkt in Cottbus Flugplatzmuseum Cottbus will certainly please every child, regardless of sex (although boys still love this theme more). A large collection of wonderful military aircraft models is on display here. All comers are invited to get acquainted with the military history of the city. Spreeauenpark is another good place to take children to. The park has its special charm, which can not be compared with any other. One more great place for family fun is Branitzer Badesee, all thanks to the sense of serenity that you can feel when visiting it.
Cottbus is a city in the eastern part of Germany located on the Spree River and three railway lines 100 kilometers away from Berlin. The population of the city reached 110 thousands in 2010. … Open
In the city, travelers can find some other places that would be of interest to any member of the family, and especially to kids. Of course, we'are talking about restaurants and cafes serving delicious desserts. These include Da Capo Eiscafé where ice cream and frozen desserts lovers are always welcome guests. Coffeelatte serves amazing coffee and equally good snacks to it - pastries, sandwiches. In Cottbuser Kaffeeroesterei, you will find a good choice of cakes and coffee. Those kids who can't live a day without pizza would be happy to visit Trattoria Il Sardo where they serve the best pizza in town.
