beer and kids in Prague & Germany

We'll be traveling this summer with my 6 year old. We're homebrewers and beer people, so definately planning to hit the pubs/bars/biergartens and breweries.

Are kids generally okay in these places? No way in hell? somewhere in between?


p.s. we're specifically thinking Prague, Bamberg, Cologne, and the flying out of Brussels. Probably be hitting the wineries too.

  1. I was AMAZED when I went to Munich last season with my 18 month old and ate in many a biergarten next to many other screaming toddlers as well as children of all ages. There are tons of outdoor spaces there and many have full on children's playgrounds within. Heck, there were even a few places with supervised FREE daycare! It's the most kid friendly place I've ever been. I would think that the rest of Germany is the same, but hopefully someone who knows about those specific cities will weigh in.

    1. You should be fine, especially in beergardens. Pubs, bars, and breweries - kinda depends on how well behaved your 6 yr. old is.

      1. I can't answer this, but I just wanted to say this is the best title for a thread in 2011 so far! ;)

        1. absolutely no problem whatsoever -- beer gardens are very family-friendly...and fantastic places to hang out during the long summer evenings.

          1. As everyone else has said, you shouldn't have problems with kids in any of the places you're going.

            Also, don't miss the "smoked" beer in Bamberg. Most pubs serve it and it's definitely unique.
