Leisure Tips & Amusement Parks in Germany.

The amusement parks are all easy to get to and many of them offer special discounted tickets via the USO.

Taunus Wunderland

Enjoy a day out at Taunus Wunderland

A host of fun attractions awaits the whole family at the Wonderful Taunus Wunderland


Taunus Wunderland amusement park is located in the Taunus hills, in the pretty spa town of Schlangenbad, close to Wiesbaden and about half an hour’s drive from Frankfurt.

A host of rides for all ages
There’s a whole variety of rides, to suit different ages and temperaments: from fast, adventurous, scary to more gentle, magical, mysterious. Even the smallest child will enjoy a carousel ride, being a pirate, playing on a climbing frame, or challenging dad to a water fight. American Indians paddle their kayaks, dragons hide behind giant boulders, ghosts are lurking in the haunted house!

For the most adventurous, those who dare can plunge more than 22 meters down a giant water slide, the Wildwasserbahn. Who’s brave enough to ride the pirate ship, too scary for me? Listen to the screams! Or the Silberpfeil, the highest slide in the whole of Hessen. Or the Big Scooter, only for those who love the thrill of speed.

Zoo Kaiserslautern

Dynamikum Science Center - Pirmasens

Tinkering, experimenting and lots of fun

Don't touch? Not in Dynamikum!
Who hasn't been to museums where you're requested to walk through quietly and are only allowed to observe the exhibits from a distance?

In the Dynamikum Science Center in Pirmasens, it's very different! Here you are encouraged to explore the 160 exhibits hands on to your hearts content and experience the fascinating phenomena of science and technology.

The overriding theme is "movement" - whether it be in the sense of to set something in motion or simply to move. Consequently there's a lot of great things to discover in the 4,000 square meters of exhibition area: Who wants to run a race with an elephant? Ever tried to roll a ball uphill? How would it be, to find yourself in place of the sun at the center of our solar system?
