Taking our kids to the local park down the street was one of the first things we did when we moved to Germany. They loved the playgrounds and there’s so much they can do and play on.
Our American Kids Love Them!
Our family of six loves German playgrounds (Deutsche Spielplätze)! They were one of the first things we went to when we moved to Germany from America. In this video, we share with you how they’re different from playgrounds in the USA, and why we love them! There’s even a lot of research that’s been done on German playgrounds and countries all over the world have been inspired by them. We also discuss the culture of German self-reliance and how children are raised to be much more independent at a younger age here than in the USA.

In February of 2021, we packed up our American family of six, with four kids ages 11 and under, and moved halfway across the world to Germany to follow our dream of living in Europe again! When we were first married, we lived for two years in France and fell in love with the European way of life. Moving to Germany has been a whirlwind, especially with four kids in tow, but we’re already growing stronger and better from the experiences we are having. It has NOT been easy, but that’s how it usually is in life when you go after your dreams!
