Can you travel to Germany with babies and toddlers?

Yes, you can!

Visitors of all ages will love going to theme parks, water parks, castles, museums and getting close to nature in the national parks located throughout the region. There is also a wide variety of accommodation on offer from holiday homes, farm stays, apartments and campsites to family hotels and baby-friendly hotels and cots are generally available on request.

As long as they're not running wild, children of any age are generally welcome in German restaurants, especially in informal cafes, bistros, pizzerias or Gaststätten (inns). High chairs are common and the server may even bring a damp cloth at the end of your meal to wipe sticky little fingers.

Many areas will also have ‘Kinder Cafes’, cafes specially designed with baby and toddler play areas where kids can entertain themselves while parents enjoy a coffee, lunch or delicious German pastry. Many cafes, restaurants and hotels will have play areas or sand pits also even if they do not come within the category of ‘Kinder Cafe’.

Baby food, infant formulas, soy and cow’s milk and nappies (diapers) are widely available in supermarkets and chemists (drugstores).

Baby-changing facilities are common in public toilets; discreet breastfeeding is acceptable in public.
