Ice skating – In December there’s an ice skating rink set up just for kids above the fountain at Karlsplatz-Stachus.
Festivals – Annual Munich festivals including the Oktoberfest, Auer Dult and Spring Festival all have rides and carousels to keep the young ones entertained, but it’s best to keep them away from the beer tents in the evenings.
I can imagine few things more exciting for a kid than to be taken to the Kaltenberg Knights’ Tournament which takes place near Munich in July.
