Don't want to have your day off spoilt by rain and storm clouds? These family-friendly indoor activities in Bavaria are ideal for when the weather is a bit unpredictable.
Below the town hall, 15 gaol cells show what a 14th-century prison was like. In the Middle Ages, long underground passages hewn into the bedrock served as places to brew Nuremberg's beer.
History is tangible right below the Nuremberg old town. There's a spooky feel in the dungeons. Anyone who likes a scare can book an adventure tour in the historic rock passages.
The little town situated on the Upper Main river is the wicker capital of Germany. If you would like to weave your own basket, you can learn from the local artisans.
Dexterity is required in Lichtenfels – anyone who takes part in a basket-weaving course can proudly take their work home with them at the end.
Visiting the town on the southern border of the Thuringian Forest is bound to make your children’s eyes light up! There is much to see at the German Toy Museum in Sonneberg!
This was once home to the biggest toy production facility in the world. The Deutsche Spielzeugmuseum (German Toy Museum) is definitely worth a visit. And when the rain stops, you can walk in the footsteps of history with a guided tour of the town on the topic of toys.
The largest stalactite in Germany. You certainly won't want for things to see in the Maximilian Grotto, which consists of an intricate network of caves and tunnels.
Deep below earth's surface, you won't even notice the bad weather in the Maximiliansgrotte tourist cave east of Neuhaus an der Pegnitz. There's plenty to discover there. Children in particular (and creatively minded adults) will be able to see figures and shapes in the rock – from eagle's wings to organ pipes.
An exciting place for all ages: The Bavaria Filmstadt film studios in Grünwald, right next to Munich, offers guided tours, activities and a 4D motion simulation cinema. You won't tire of this place easily!
It's a classic indoor activity in Bavaria – you'll certainly not be bored. Each member of your family can become a film star in the exciting interactive activities. And even if you don't want to test your talent in front of the camera, there's plenty to see here.
A night in the Heuhotel (hay hotel) in Unterammergau in Upper Bavaria isn't just exciting for visitors big and small, it's also good for your health – camomile, hops and other flowers are mixed into the hay here and help you to get a good night's sleep.
