Families and children

Baby changing facilities

Every parents knows that situation: The diaper is full, the baby is crying, and there is no changing facility. Many shops and restaurateurs offer public changing rooms. A service for you and your little ones, so that the shopping trip with the whole family remains relaxed.


Where can you send the kids when you want to go shopping without stress or children for a change? Of course, you want to be certain that your baby is in safe hands or that your three-year-old daughter can still have fun without Mum or Dad.

Play areas

Some businesses and restaurants cater solely to the needs of its fully grown customers. What about when little guests are visiting? How can the kids be kept occupied all evening? Who can be sure that they won’t get bored?


Exercise in the fresh air, creative play, and a safe space for your little ones? You can find that in Karlsruhe city centre, too. If you are having a long day of shopping with the family and want to give the littlest members a break, you should make a stop here. The neighbouring cafés and restaurants mean that a visit here will be an experience for the grown-ups, too.
