Werft einen Blick ins Buch:


A shopping trip with mom and dad can sometimes be pretty annoying. So the little ones really deserve a break every now and then. It's a good thing that there are two playgrounds in the Altstadt. After the romp, you can get back to your stroll through the alleys of the Altstadt again.

  • Playground at Franz-Josefs-Kai
    Right next to the Red Cross parking lot
  • Playground at the Mirabell Garden
    Don't forget to pay a visit to the Zwergerlgarten (dwarf garden).
