If you’re planning to visit Wroclaw with your children, check out this list of activities for kids.
A water park is always a good idea for having fun and the one in Wrocław offers a plethora of attractions for both kids and their parents. There are two outdoor pools but the majority of the activities are indoors so you can enjoy them regardless of the weather.
Wroclaw lies on the Oder so taking a boat trip along the river seems like the obvious choice to see the town and its sights from a different perspective. You can choose between several different ships and routes.
Bobolandia is a large indoor play area with lots of attractions for younger kids. It’s a good place to go when it’s raining or if your children get bored quickly and need more fun activities.
If you’d like your kids to have sweet momories of Wroclaw, take them to Cukier Lukier. This lovely small confectionery shop not only sells sweets but will also show you how to make candies. Free presentations take place hourly.
Humanitarium Ogrody Doswiadczen
This interactive education centre holds interesting exhibitions and offers a number of workshops for kids of different ages. They also have weekend activities for the whole family. If you want to participate in one of them, make sure you book an English-speaking instructor in advance. The main exhibition is bilingual (Polish and English labels available).
This park in Wroclaw displays miniature models of the most famous buildings in Poland. It’s a good place to learn more about the country and take a few nice photos. Before you go, make sure you ask if an English-speaking guide is available. Kraina is only open during summer season.
Loopy’s World is another indoor play area for kids. It offers a plethora of fun activities, including slides, trampolines, wax hands and airbrush tattoos.
Muzeum Motoryzacji Topacz
This museum is probably best suited to older children interested in antique cars and motocycles. It’s located in Sleza which is about 8 miles (12 km) from Wroclaw’s city centre.
Visit this museum only if your children are particularly interested in nature. The exhibitions here feature impressive animal skeletons but the labels are in Polish only.
Wyspa Przygody Opatowicka
Wyspa Opatowicka is one of the inland islands in Wroclaw. It’s a really nice spot to spend time outdoors but the main attraction here is a tree top adventure park. It offers a number of trails for all ages and levels.
Dwarfs (or gnomes) are called krasnale in Polish. You can find these funny little creatures in different locations all around the city centre. Let your children search for them and you’ll all have lots of fun discovering Wroclaw.
Wroclawski Ogrod Zoologiczny
If your kids love animals, visit the zoo in Wroclaw. It has a variety of exotic species from Africa, South America and Asia.
