After a nice hearty breakfast, head to Potsdamer Platz where you'll find the LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Unmissable due to the giant LEGO giraffe out the front, as their website says- stepping inside here, "you'll think you've just jumped into the world's biggest box of LEGO!" Filled with fun LEGO related activities and facts, this mammoth center contains a 4D cinema, play area, LEGO factory and a mini-land amongst countless stimulating activity corners. If you're after a bit of cultural significance, you'll find some of Berlin's best tourist attractions in miniature, LEGO versions here! Fun for all ages, LEGOLAND makes for a great few hours of creativity, imagination and enjoyment.[PHOTO_200091]
Once the kids have had enough, jump on the U-Bahn (U2) to Stadtmitte. Here you can either walk or change to the U7 train to Französische Str. station and exit onto Französische Strasse where you'll find the Ritter Sport Bunte Schokowelt (the colourful world of chocolate!) Ritter Sport is a German brand of chocolate which can be found all over Europe. They make delicious chocolate blocks in an incredible array of flavour combinations, and the Bunte Schokowelt is a museum entirely dedicated to the stuff, much like a German version of the M&M worlds. After a good look at everything 'chocolate' on display, head to the attached cafe for a delicious treat. The cafe offers your usual snacks and hot drinks but they also make some incredible desserts based around the various chocolate block flavours! Vibrant and a lot of tasty fun, the Bunte Schokowelt is not to be missed!Ritter Sport Cafe — Photo courtesy of Ritter Sport Bunte Schokowelt
After you've had all your sweet tooth can handle, head back to the U-bahn and from Stadtmitte station, take the U2 in the direction of Ruhleben to Zoologischer Garten station where you'll of course find the famous Berlin Zoo. Known for being one of the most diverse zoos in the world, as well as being the oldest in Germany, this 34 hectare property contains around 14,000 animals! Attracting around 3 million visitors annually, it is certainly a worthwhile activity for any visitor to the city!Berlin Zoo — Photo courtesy of Heather Cowper
By now it should be getting close to dinner time and no doubt after all this activity and excitement, the kids will be getting hungry! Hop back on the train to Nollendorf Platz station, change to the U1 train line and get off at Görlitzer Bahnoff. As you exit the station you'll notice that you're surrounded by a variety of restaurants, so take you're pick as to what the kids feel like eating. Once dinners done with, head to Görlitzer Park and suss out the Park Cafe. Here you'll find the Schwartzlicht Mini-golf (Black light mini golf) which is essentially a basement with 18 holes of golf, spread over 5 glow-in-the-dark rooms with various themes- starting at the Brandenburg Gate! If you're not in the mood for playing with the kids, head to the cafe and enjoy a coffee and some cake until they've finished playing.Schwartzlicht Mini Golf — Photo courtesy of Schwartzlicht Mini Golf Facebook
After such an action packed day, the little ones will surely be worn out and well and truly ready to get a good nights sleep!
