Our nanny is happy to lovingly look after all babies older than six months and children of all ages. From Monday to Thursday, a changeable programme is offered, Friday is always under the banner of the child kitchen.
Within the child programme, tiny figures can make plaster figures or iron-on transfers, draw and decorate treasure chests and create greetings cards. In the child kitchen, cooking and baking creations are tested together.

For free-time activities, buggies, back carriers and sledges (also with small child attachment) can be hired free of charge directly from the hotel.
In the adventure playground, all children can really run wild: Wave chute, trampoline, mini electric tractors and cableways are just waiting to be discovered, and in the play tower there are even sand lifts and conveyor belts. The go-karts are also especially popular and allow you to zoom around the grounds really well.
