Rhine-Erft-County for fam­il­ies

Phant­as­i­a­land, kart­ing or kayak­ing

Our tips for fam­ily days out in Rhine-Erft-County: Fun and ad­ven­ture in an amuse­ment park or thrill­ing rides on a go-kart track or white wa­ter course.


There is a huge choice of fun fam­ily activ­it­ies in Rhine-Erft-County. Phant­as­i­a­land in Brühl is an at­trac­tion with name re­cog­ni­tion far bey­ond the re­gion. This amuse­ment park of­fers thrill­ing rides, with new ones reg­u­larly ad­ded, a se­lec­tion of shows, themed res­taur­ants and sev­er­al ac­com­mod­a­tion op­tions.

Mi­chael Schu­mach­er Kart and Event Centre

Equally thrill­ing are the activ­it­ies at the Mi­chael Schu­mach­er Kart and Event Centre in Ker­pen. The For­mula One idol?s home town has a 600-metre in­door track where 8.5 HP go-karts al­low for spec­tac­u­lar ra­cing, which can be con­tin­ued out­side on a slightly longer track with a pit lane. Ju­ni­or drivers have to be at least eight years old and 1.40 metres tall.

Kayak­ing or raft­ing tours on the Erft

If the weath­er is good, kayak­ing or raft­ing tours on the Erft make for an en­joy­able fam­ily out­ing. A num­ber of trips suit­able for chil­dren are or­gan­ized between Bergheim and Gre­ven­broi­ch. Kayaks for one, two or three pad­dlers are avail­able, with the three-per­son boat able to fit two chil­dren along with two adults. An en­tire group can fit in­to the rafts. Since get­ting wet is guar­an­teed, wa­ter­proof cloth­ing and shoes as well as a change of clothes is re­com­men­ded.
