Summer holiday with children: Adventure for big and small

Children have lots of fun on our large hotel grounds - whether on the Robinson adventure playground with climbing frame, swings, slide and sandpit, a play street with tractors, bobby cars and diggers or a small animal enclosure - there is something for everyone.

There is plenty to do both indoors and outdoors at our hotel: Outside, the little ones can romp around in the pirate playground, ride a pony or slackline.

If it rains for a short time during your summer holiday, the indoor adventure land with bouncy castle and trampoline, the 120 square metre play lounge for toddlers or the indoor romping house provide variety.

From Monday to Sunday, we look after the kids for up to 10.5 hours a day! Meanwhile, parents can relax from everyday life in our wellness area. Fun and games for children, rest and relaxation for parents. You can find out more about our play and sports programme here.

By the way: thanks to the high staffing ratio, your child will be well looked after. If you have a question, someone from our friendly team will be there quickly. Our goal: to make your family holiday as pleasant as possible!

FAQ about your summer holiday with the family 

Where to spend a summer holiday with children?

It doesn't always have to be a trip to the beach! Germany is also a great destination and has a lot of fun and variety to offer.

In Sauerland there are smaller mountains and lakes that invite you to go mountain biking or do water sports. Kids are also well looked after in children's hotels like the Sonnenpark.

What to look out for when it is very hot during a family holiday?

In summer, remember to wear adequate sun protection with sun hats and sun cream, avoid excessive exposure to heat, especially at midday, and make sure you drink enough fluids.

Children should drink one litre per day in summer! Babies, on the other hand, should not be exposed to direct sunlight.

What kind of clothing and equipment do children need for a summer holiday?

Light and airy clothing is recommended to protect from the sun and heat - even if your destination is beyond the sea and sandy beaches. Think about swimwear, hats, sunglasses and sunscreen. Pack comfortable shoes for excursions.

Rainwear or light jumpers can also be useful for cooler evenings during your holiday. Think about snacks, water bottles and entertainment for the road. This way you will be well equipped for your trip.

What to consider when children swim in the swimming pool?

A holiday without fun in the water is unthinkable for many, even in a country like Germany. However, there are a few things to keep in mind, even if your destination is not on a beach, but the little ones are splashing around in a protected children's hotel.

Always keep the children under supervision and within reach. Use flotation devices if necessary and make sure the water is at an appropriate depth. Explain to the children how they should behave in the pool, for example where they are allowed to jump in and where not.

Sun protection, adequate hydration and breaks are important to allow fun without risks. Pre-school children can stay in the water for around 20 to 30 minutes, older ones can splash around a little longer. Afterwards, however, it is important to warm up and put on dry clothes.

From what age is an excursion to the farm suitable?

Most children love animals. From 2 to 3 years, a visit to a farm is a nice experience: from this age, children can see, hear and pet the animals. The excursion offers an educational and entertaining experience.

Older children from the age of 4 or 5 can usually develop a deeper understanding of farm processes.

Practical: Our child-friendly hotel is not far from a farm. We also offer a petting zoo not far from our guests' beautiful accommodation!
