Sam’s knitting supplies recommendations
Fast online delivery, though she is Bielefeld-based and offers pick-up as an option. More variety in brands than a lot of the “brick and mortar” knitting shops I’ve seen. Speaks English.

Cute store in the Altstadt. Owner doesn’t speak English but is very friendly.

We found two great places to take kids for a fun day out. They both have low admission charges and are beautiful parks with lots of play areas, swimming pools, kids museum, animals etc.  There’s lots of different things for the kids to wear themselves out on while the parents picnic on the grass. Bring a change of clothes and a towel for the water play areas.

Glueckundseligkeit – A converted church with a fun modern atmosphere. There is a kids playroom, outdoor playground and they give out colouring paper and crayons.
Nichtschwimmer –  Modern. Nice outdoor eating area. Also has a kids playroom
Bultmanshof – Old farmhouse with a modern interior, has nice outdoor seating area overlooking a pond and park. Has a good sandpit & toys outside and an indoors playroom.


Cafe milestones – good brunch place, most reminds me of the brunch places in the US.
Bauernhause Museum – has a selection of great cakes and a nice outdoors seating area, sandpit for the kids and you don’t need to pay admission if you’re only visiting the cafe.
