Find yourself searching for the perfect playground? No worries, I was scouting Berlin looking for the best destinations to have fun with children. From playgrounds, farms for children to the Teddy's concert at Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin or the flashlight tour for children at Museum für Naturkunde; I found so many awesome spots that I decided to publish a new map PlayBerlin for parents and children soon. I hope you enjoy the selection! For now here is the Top 5 of playgrounds in Berlin, but stay tune.
