Dino Park

Leave a comment

We went to the Dinosaurier Park near Hannover this weekend. It’s a fun place if you have youngsters interested in dinosaurs. Visitors walk around admiring life sized models in the woods. Some are huge and there are plenty to see, a few can be climbed on. There are a couple of nice playgrounds and several picnic areas.  There were also extra activities for additional charge (panning for gold, cracking open fossils etc). Overall my son and husband enjoyed it but I felt it was rather overpriced. So more of a place to visit as a one off.

To our amusement, we also saw signs to a stork museum and a herring fishing museum on the way.

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.
