Often simple activities like a trip to the park help everyone to relax when you are holidaying with young children. I know, it hardly seems very instagrammable or exciting in comparison with some of the content you get on travel accounts, but if we're being honest and authentic about travelling with children, these kinds of things can turn a potentially whingey day where everyone feels grumpy into something much more bearable, especially if the weather is fine. It's easy to think 'but they can just play in the park at home!', but we have found that finding a good outdoor space to have a run around is a cheap way of reminding our children (and us parents!) that it's their holiday too, plus it helps them let off steam a bit and run wild without having to fall in line with our expectations all the time (often very hard for little people!)
It's a really good idea to do a bit of internet research first as to where the parks are in your destination, because then you can try and combine a visit to one with something that appeals to the adults too. In this case, this one was a winner because it was on the same street as a café we liked and were hoping to visit, but also because it was central and offered some interesting photographic perspectives: one of the things I love about Hamburg is how the city seems to have so many levels, most noticeably because of Hamburg's underground, known as the 'Hochbahn' because, well, most of it is not underground and is above street level. And I just love the way the Elbphilharmonie, lovingly referred to as the 'Elphi' by locals, peeks out at you on the horizon from so many different parts of the city. What simple activities have other parents found helpful on holiday?
