    "This is a fantastic day out with everything a true replica of the real life versions and amazing attention to detail. It is huge and with little ones you need almost a full day to go round (so take a picnic as the cafe is quite pricey). My kids particularly enjoyed the airport (planes take off and land) as well as the fire brigade putting out fires. Great place for kids and adults. Being one of the most visited exhibitions in Northern Germany it can get really crowded so try and avoid peak times - however whilst you queue they do offer you free drinks and ice cream!"

    "Really beautiful place to take a boat trip with the family or to just have a walk/bike ride. There is barbecue area as well as plenty of picnic spots. Dont forget to buy a Alsterwasser (Shandy!). The new statue in the middle is slightly freaky - my children are scared of it! (KP, Feb 2013)

    "Not a massive fan of zoos but of course the kids love them. They get chance here to feed the animals and there is a good sized playground and aquarium. Its quite pricey so make sure you take your own food and drink and avoid the shop at all costs. Try to avoid going November to March as there is generally renovation work going on and parts are closed. They also offer childrens birthday parties (from 6 years old) and a variety of events/workshops for kids" (KP, Feb 2013)

    "Great funfair atmosphere with lots of typical rides, food and drinks. From the Ferris Wheel you have a great view of Hamburg. They have a great firework display at the weekends if you are prepared to keep the kids up late." (KP, Feb 2013)
