About Ann-Kristin B
Lives in Hamburg, Germany
Since Oct 2008
I was Born and raised in Hamburg. But after graduationg from high School I felt I wanted to see the world. That is why I decided to take a break and absolve voluntary worjk in Tanzania and a traineeship in South Africa as well as backpack through China and South America. When I came back I moved to the Netherlands to study International Tourism Management. I graduation in 2013 and am now living again in the most beautiful City of Hamburg where I also work in the tourism industry. I'm still crazy about travelling and cannot wait for my next trip :)
Natural History Museums, Aquariums
Observation Decks & Towers
Learn all about the Stone Age at the Neanderthal Museum (as the name implies!). The museum offers special guided tours for children where the exhibited program is easily explained.
The Aquazoo is a combination of a zoo and a natural history museum. You'll find a coral reef and tropical hall showcasing many different fish and marine life. Plus, the museum offers an educational tour so the whole family can learn about sea life and mammals. The Aquazoo is also very active in nature protection so deserves to be supported.
In the middle of the Grafenberger Forest you'll come across the Dusseldorf wildlife park. With more than 100 wild domestic animals to meet — and no entrance fee to pay — it's the perfect destination for a day out with the kids.
Phantasialand is not in Dusseldorf but it is easy to reach by public transport from the city. It is one of the largest theme parks in Germany — there are so many roller coasters and attractions that the kids won't want to leave!
Radstation is a bike rental outlet at the central station and, in summer, also pops-up at the Rhine promenade. The whole family will love discovering Dusseldorf on two wheels following the beautiful cycle lanes along the River Rhine.
The Marionettentheater is a cute puppet theater offering a variety of different plays — from Faust to fairy tales — that you and your family can enjoy together.
The Hofgarten — the central park of Dusseldorf — is a great green space for the kids to let off some steam. There are three outdoor playgrounds and a cafe if you want to grab something to eat — although I recommend you find a nice spot and have a picnic.
The Rheinturm is a television tower, which is more than 240 meters high and the largest building in Dusseldorf. 172.5 meters up the tower is a restaurant, which turns 360° every hour, offering a beautiful, panoramic view of the city for the whole family to enjoy together.
