It takes a while getting used to most services being shut on Sundays in Germany, but once I got used to it, I LOVE it. I appreciate the fact that on Sundays we get proper family time – not distracted by running errands and shopping.
One of my favourite things to do on such a Sunday is to go to a park. Despite being a concrete jungle, Frankfurt has a handful of green spaces to relax in and Schwanheim Waldspielpark is one of them.
In the summer, the waterplay playground is the highlight for families. We do (un)fortunately get very humid summers in Frankfurt so such playgrounds are great for cooling us down.
It wasn’t quite 30 degrees Celsius when we were there but Theo enjoyed himself running through the water and splashing around.
I reckon his favourite thing to do then was to hold Dan’s hands to run through the water repeatedly. I can’t wait to bring him back to Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay waterplay again!
For those who aren’t fussed about the playground, the trails there are also gentle for most people. The terrains are fairly smooth and flat.
It’s definitely a great place to chill and be away from the hustle and bustle of city life. There is also a small but very interesting tram museum and petting zoo next to the tram stop.
