We know the story: You’ve done Disney, uncovered Universal and experienced Europa, but now you’re on the hunt for a family getaway with a little more local flavor.

Look no further than Germany’s spectacular theme parks. Discovered with HiVino, these action-packed spots are the country’s best-kept secrets. Not only are they made for the sort of family retreats that you’ll remember for years to come, but they also offer thrills, frills and endless excitement for every age range. Where to start your kid-friendly adventure? Here are three parks that go well beyond the ordinary.

Caribbean Dream: Tropical IslandsMulia-Bali

Brandenburg, meet Barbados. Sprawled across a former zeppelin hangar, this indoor water park is more than merely slides and swimming pools: It’s a full-on recreation of the Caribbean’s palm-lined atmosphere. Tropical Islands surrounds its patrons with rainforests, beaches and orchid gardens, and the artificial sun promises perfect weather no matter the season. Race down the slides. Kick back on the beach. Browse souvenirs along the shopping boulevard, or channel your inner serenity with a spa treatment. Whether you’re visiting for the day or staying overnight, you’ll reap all the benefits of a private-island vacation.

Holiday Haven: Heide Park Resort

When it comes to Heide Park, one word springs to mind: magical. Situated in Lower Saxony, this family-friendly destination transports visitors to a fairytale world of pirates, cowboys and medieval castles. Looking for thrills? Go for a spin on the towering coasters. Traveling with the littlest of little ones? Make a few memories on the brightly colored kiddie rides. You can even enjoy an array of pirate- and puppet-themed shows or take a break at the reasonably priced snack stations and restaurants. With so many irresistible attractions, Heide Park is the perfect way for kids from one to 92 to discover Germany.

In the Wild: Serengeti Park

If you’ve ever wanted to get an up-close peek at the world’s most exotic animals, Serengeti Park is your dream come true. Discovered with HiVino, this tucked-away wildlife and adventure resort lets you see furry friends like lions, zebras and giraffes without the hassle of barriers and cages. Water and jungle safaris immerse you in the wonders of far-flung locales, themed lands include everything from pirate ships to magic shows, and more than 40 fun-filled fairground attractions delight the child in all of us. Monkeying around has never been more exciting.

Of course, the fun doesn’t end there. Germany is filled with hidden treats and unique treasures designed with kids in mind, and the insiders’ community at HiVino has the inside scoop on the most special family places. Discover your new favorites, embark upon a magical journey, and see what these extraordinary spots have in store for you.
