I decided not to mention this place to my kids when we first came to Munich, for if I had, there would have been no chance to visit anything else. PLAYMOBIL is a fantastic product, which keeps kids amused at the best of times, but immerse them in a 90,000m2 theme park, and who knows where it will end... The official introduction:
"The PLAYMOBIL Fun Park at Zirndorf near Nuremberg is a great day out for families all year round. Over 90,000 m², visitors can climb, balance and play to their hearts' content. The leisure park’s unique concept focuses on movement and activity, and not on standing in queues!
"In the huge PLAYMOBIL themed play areas, even the youngest children can give their imagination free rein. This is the right place for anyone who fancies themselves as a pirate, dinosaur hunter, knight, noble damsel or princess. In the meantime, Mum and Dad can enjoy the relaxed park atmosphere.
"And if the weather isn't playing ball, the 5,000 m² glazed HOB Center, with its life-sized PLAYMOBIL scenery, extensive play areas, show stage, theme dining and coffee bar, offers more than enough space for endless fun and carefree hours for young and old alike."
The official website is also in English, and it offers a full overview of attractions, accommodation and dining options. Check it out here. Or click here for a virtual tour.
The park is open daily from 09:00 - 18:00 (19:00 in peak season from July 1 - Sept 14) from March 28 to November 8.
A day ticket costs from 9 - 11 euro, depending on the season, with afternoon tickets available for 2 euro less. For details of ticket prices for the day of your visit, click here.
