Living with your kids in Germany can be an incredible opportunity to explore a new country and culture. Here are a few ways to get out and about with your family, no matter the season or weather.
1) Check out the Ramstein pool (Freizeitbad Azur).
In winter months, the indoor section of the Ramstein pool can help you ward off cabin fever. No matter how chilly or cloudy it is outside, the pool, slides, jacuzzi, sauna and hippo fountain (click for pictures). A lap pool is also available for those who are looking for a little less play and more exercise.
During the warmer months, an outdoor pool and play area extends your fun and can help you and the kids keep cool, especially during summer vacation!
