Families can spend many fascinating days in Speyer. They can experience intriguing adventures on the water, explore airy heights in the climbing park, and get to know unique museums and centres of knowledge – all in the middle of a city. For Speyer is a city of possibilities. And with its straightforward approach and inviting parks, it is made for short legs and long respites.


Technical Museum of Speyer

For example, the giant slide direct from the observation platform adjacent to the Boeing 747 is great fun, even for grown-up “children”. Next to a big playground for children on the open air portion of the site, accessible exhibits like the Boeing 747, the Antonov AN-22 and the German Navy’s original U9 submarine appeal to young visitors. 

Best of all, birthday children (grown-ups too) receive free admission to the Technical Museum of Speyer and the IMAX DOME film theatre. To establish birth date, an identification card, passport or driver’s license should be shown at the museum’s ticket window.

Young People’s Museum

This museum is anything but boring, especially since it involves knowledge. Several times a year, the Young People’s Museum of Speyer offers informative exhibitions especially for children. Child-oriented presentations and objects to hold and try make it possible for children to have a playful involvement with art and culture. Families can time-travel into history, explore the life of men and women in times past and compare it with that of today. During a hands-on exhibition in the Young People’s Museum in Speyer, children are the players and designers simultaneously. Fun leads to unforgettable learning experiences.
