During winter I am always looking for indoor places to take D to in the afternoons. On Facebook I came across information about the Salzheilgrotte Frankfurt and saw that it had a salt spiel room for children. So the next day we grabbed some white socks & headed there with some friends to take a look.

Today we decided to head out of Frankfurt with some friends & as both our boys are train mad we decided to head to the Modelbahnwelt Odenwald.
We drove the hours journey whilst the boys had their nap & arrived just in time for lunch. So first stop was the cafe. The cafe served a good selection of food and a great selection of really yummy cakes.
The cafe was super kid friendly, with a table where the boys could draw & play Gruffalo dominoes!
The main entrance is through the cafe & once we were fed & watered off we went to look at the trains! Continue reading “Modellbahn fun in Odenwald!”
