Travel with Children

Frankfurt is an easy and enjoyable place to travel if you’ve got the little ones along.

The city centre is generally flat, with well-maintained pavements, making it easy for parents with prams to get around. Not all U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations have lifts, so buses, trams or taxis may be more convenient. Baby paraphernalia, such as nappies/diapers and formula, is readily available. Shopping centres have changing facilities, though few restaurants do. Cots are available at many hotels (sometimes for a small extra fee); check when you book. Restaurants typically welcome children but may not have high chairs (confirm when booking).

Parks and playgrounds are plentiful, and several museums have child-friendly exhibits. Kid favourites include the fossils and dinosaurs at the Senckenberg Museum; animals galore at the Frankfurt Zoo; and the PalmenGarten's parkland and fountains. Designed especially for children and families, the Junges Museum Frankfurt has changing exhibitions and hands-on activities.
