I usually associate airports with a lot of stress… starting right from visa issues, to packing, luggage limits, delayed flights not to mention the dreaded take-offs and landings (yes I am that passenger who grips the seat handles and looks away from the window!) Travelling with a child is no piece of cake either!
So I was pleasantly surprised to find a Sommerfest being held at the Dusseldorf airport. It is held every year during summer holidays – a full entertainment package for kids and adults alike.
This is one of things I love about Germany – there are so many activities for children. Fests & play areas that demand active and intelligent engagement on part of the kids and also the parents – keeping them busily excited. Luckily this year our trip has coincided with this festival.
There were also informative activities – A guided tour of the Airport (that we unfortunately missed). Different airport vehicles lined up outside the airport for the kids to see and sit inside… the purpose for each was explained.
