Winter holidays in Wrocław - 7 ideas which your children will love!

Winter holidays are coming along! So take your family to the Lower Silesia! And heading for the mountains, never forget to visit Wrocław! It’s so full of attractions for kids and adults alike! Don’t you believe us? Well, here’s a proof! 

#1 Pergola winter and Wrocław ice rinks

The Centennial Hall is a sheer paradise for those who fancy winter craze more than anything else in the world. Especially now, when Pergola has turned into the largest open-air rink in the city. Yet, time is short so if you want to have some icy fun, you need to make haste! This attraction is available until 28 February and opened from 9:00 am until 10:00 pm. Apart from the main point, of course, free floorball tournaments and skating trainings for the youngest will also take place here every morning. And if you prefer indoor ice rinks, though, there are two covered ones, available to the inhabitants of Wrocław and tourists alike. The bigger ice rink is located in Spiska Street, near the Aquapark. And for you, dear children, there are the merry helpers – Penguin, Teddy Bear and Seal, waiting to stand by your side every time you need them. The other ice rink is in the Orbita Hall, at Wejherowska Street.

#2 The largest LEGO exhibition in Poland

Do you like the Lego blocks? What a question is that? Everyone does! So, if you do, just come to Wrocław! Here, your eyes will see the largest exhibition constructed of these famous toy blocks in the whole of our country! 1700 m2 of the Wrocław stadium shall turn into a fairytale land to remember! The plane Boeing 747, built of as many as one million blocks, being 11 m long and 3 m high is an undoubted star of this place. And such treats as the figure of our Polish football champion, Robert Lewandowski, Star Wars collection with the famous Venator-class Star Destroyer, mock-ups from the Mine Craft,  Friends or Scooby-Doo, interactive map of Europe are quite a fancy, too, ain’t they? And there is sooo much more to come! The exhibition awaits you daily from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm.  

#3 Kolejkowo – the marvellous world of railway in miniature 

All the fans of railways (quite a comfortable means of transport, will you agree?) should visit the famous Kolejkowo in Wrocław! It’s the largest mock-up of railway in Poland with 15 trains and …. one tramway, making their tiny little journey around the Old Market Square. Follow them on their way along the streets of Wrocław, full of colourful tenements, go up to the Świebodzki Railway Station, admire the carefully crafted replica of the Szwajcarka Shelter, with Karpacz, the Śnieżka Mountain and the Meteorological Observatory far way to the other side! Here where day becomes night and night becomes day, our Guests have the time of their lives. Kolejkowo is open every day from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm.

#4 Wrocław ZOO – winter sleep is a myth!

Animals usually fall into winter sleep when it gets cold outside. But our ZOO and especially the Africarium zone are literally bustling with life even now! So seize the opportunity just right away! All the furry and feathery fellows are waiting for you to pay them a visit. Still not convinced enough? So bear in mind that in the winter season, tickets are always cheaper and there’s no summer crowd around you so you can enjoy sightseeing to the full. Have you heard about our little and sweet Zumba? That’s the youngest hippopotamus in the whole Africarium. Such a sweetie, indeed! Oh, and there are also Armstrong the Manatee and our merry penguins. So many have fallen for the place already! Why don’t you join the circle? Our friendly Wrocław zoo invites you to cross its doorsteps from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm on weekdays and from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm during weekends. 

#5 Plays at the Wrocław Puppet Theatre 

Winter holidays are always so puppety – muppety in Wrocław! And it’s all because of the Puppet Theatre with their dreamy-like wonders of puppeteering art. This year, they shall present amongst others: Miraże – Baśnie Ludów Wschodu (Mirages – Fairytales of the Eastern Folks), Palma (Palma) or Piękna i Bestia (Beauty and the Beast). These magical performances take place both in the morning and the afternoon! Top choice! For us, positively the best! Thumbs up!

#6 Museum of Wax and Fairytale Figures 

Destined primarily for children aged 4 – 12, but even adults will find it enjoyable, as we think. The museum is located in the vaults of the Wzgórze Partyzantów (Partisans’ Hill). Look around! Who’s there! Spiderman is hanging just above Batman, the Lion King is catching a royal glimpse of the merry Minions while the Ice Age fellows are having fun with Shrek and his Fiona. And there is certainly more about it all, yet we will be no spoilsports. A value added to that are most obviously distorting mirrors and artistic workshops. 

#7 Hydropolis – discover the secrets of water

The Science Centre Hydropolis is a sheer paradise for adults and children alike! So unique, so one of the kind, the only attraction of this type in Poland! All this large space is dedicated to water alone, the most essential element on Earth. Children above the age of 6 – 7 will simply love it, younger can feel a bit bored, but it’s not always the case. The whole exhibition is divided into theme zones – the planet of water, depths, ocean of life, water and humans, relaxation zone (so fabulous!!!!) and the kids’ zone to crown it all. Your guiding voice around the centre will be the most famous voiceover in Polish TV, Krystyna Czubówna herself! The Hydropolis is opened from Monday until Friday 9:00 am – 6:00 pm and during weekends 10:00 am – 8:00 pm. 


And when the crazy ride around the Wrocław attractions is over, why don’t you cool the jets, taking a peaceful stroll around the Old Town, huh? Maybe you’ll try to find the famous dwarves? One of them, Chrapek (Snorry), is waiting the doorstep of our hotel, perhaps he will be kind enough to tell you the whereabouts of his fellows! We have prepared not only comfortable rooms, but also – for those more demanding Guests – some truly delightful suites. Your children will have a whale of a time in the kids’ zone, and once they get hungry, our special menu dedicated to the very needs of your little ones, will help them regain strength! Let the magic of winter embrace your body and soul! Come to Wrocław today! Find our FAMILY OFFER HERE!
