Black Forest-Baar-Kreis – There are lots of good playgrounds in the Black Forest-Baar-Kreis, but some are very special!



We have listed the five best playgrounds and do the big playground check in the categories fun factor, equipment selection and seating options.

Play as Wickie and the Strong Men

Rarely can a visit to the playground be combined with a nice short walk, which is also suitable for short legs, as easy as with Salvest playground between Villingen and Schwenningen. With the car conveniently parked in the walking parking lot, the paved forest path – suitable for prams – leads up to the Salvest Game Reserve. And there you can not only walk around the fallow deer enclosure, but also have fun: a carousel, a Viking wooden ship, a tree trunk to balance on or a barefoot path – the playground stands out comfortably from the drainage mill’s play equipment on inner city playgrounds away . Lots of wood, in the middle of nature and unusual attractions that encourage role-playing games, the playground scores even without the usual suspicious play equipment. Be on the move for a few hours like Vicky and the strong men on a big ship or do the same as the engineer and conquer alien worlds like Luke and Jim Button, all this is possible in the middle of the breathtaking scenery at Salvest Game Reserve. Speaking of nature: if you have a thirst for knowledge or want to quench your children: everything that has to do with the animals’ inhabitants is clearly explained on large boards in the deer enclosure, there is also a kind of forest nature trail, and for plant lovers it can be worth a closer look at the orchid meadow – beautiful flowers of these rare plants can be admired there. And if you have not exhausted yourself after all that, you can catch up on the way back to the parking lot: numerous small paths meander through the green to the right and left of the main path and let small adventurers on terrain get their money’s worth.

Everything but ordinary – the play barn and Tanniland

One play stable is it just indoor fun? Are you serious when you say that! The small but very cozy play paradise in Unterkirnach proves the opposite and is recommended not only for rainy days but especially for summer days. The reason is in front of the play loading door: Outside, the location entices with a fantastic and unusual play area, Annilandet. A large pond invites you to play and splash around and best of all: the brave can swing over the water on a cable car. Children can jump over the pond on flippers, and once they have conquered the large climbing tower, a fun tunnel slide lures as a reward. The indoor area of ​​the Unterkirnach playhouse also has nothing in common with a regular indoor playground: there are countless play equipment – for example, a roller coaster offers a lot of fun, where children sit in a box and slide down the metal rollers alone or in pairs on a wooden slide hissing Climbing towers, bird-lined swings and lots of wooden play equipment that trains coordination while the children have fun are part of the furniture here – of course there is no reason to do without the classic ball field, nor a small indoor football field or a space tower, but on plastic overloaded large play equipment or noisy attractions. Of course, it is not quiet in the playroom either, but it is less because of the amusement park equipment and more because the children are screaming for fun.
