If inclement autumnal weather causes the sightseeing tour to literally get rained out, it is always good to have a Plan B ready. Luckily, the MEININGER metropoles also have plenty of indoor activities to offer in such situations, above and beyond the standard options like visiting a museum or going to the cinema. We have located some of the best action-packed alternatives to the conventional bad weather program in Hamburg, Berlin, Vienna und Amsterdam, against which the autumn blues and boredom stand no chance.
BergWerk in Berlin
For those who don’t get dizzy and are always in search of new challenges, BergWerk Berlin is guaranteed to be the right address. The approximately 30-minute train ride to the east of the city is worth it, since the largest indoor climbing hall in Europe offers suitable obstacle courses for beginners and climbing experts alike. The ropes, ladders, nets and platforms rise up to 25 metres in the air, and are totally unhindered by weather and temperature. An introduction and safety equipment are included in the 2.5 hour adventure.
