The best indoor activities for lousy (autumn) weather

This post is also available in: German

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.

WHY:                 Butterflies in the stomach

WHERE:              Stendaler Straße 25 // 12627 Berlin // Germany


PRICE:                Adults 22 Euros, Children (over 12 years) 20 Euros








Always wanted to go on a laser tag hunt? With its 1000m² indoor range, the LASERMAXX in Vienna offers more than enough space. The cat-and-mouse game through the laser labyrinth calls for tactics and team work. Lots of obstacles, contorted rooms, neon lights and smoke effects provide an extra adrenalin kick.

WHY:                 Be a secret agent for a day

WHERE:              Roßauer Lände 45 // 1090 Vienna // Austria


PRICE:                From 15 Euros per person, 45 Euros

Jumphouse in Hamburg

Up in the air! In the Jumphouse in Hamburg dreams come true. You can really let off steam on the 52 trampolines in the 1600m² space. It is easy to book online for your desired length (1 hour+) and number of people (up to 20) and get airborne. And if jumping on its own is not enough, there are additional special areas to act out your urges to play dodgeball, basketball or American Gladiator.


WHY:                 Air jumps all-you-can-have

WHERE:              Kieler Straße 572 // 22525 Hamburg // Germany


PRICE:        From 12 Euros per person

GlowGolf in Amsterdam

Back to the future! Everyone knows mini golf.

Put simply: Let the glow-in-the-dark party begin!


WHY:                Turn day into night

WHERE:              Prins Hendrikkade 194 // Amsterdam // Netherlands


PRICE:                Adults 8.50 Euros, Children (11 years and under) 7.50 Euros
