Although plenty of festivals in Germany offer a corner to keep the younger visitors occupied, it’s children’s activities that take center stage in Nuremberg this weekend when “Nuremberg Plays” gives kids the chance to watch, listen, discover and enjoy.

The fun begins Saturday at 3 p.m. in Cramer-Klett Park. An area surrounding a circus tent offers costumed characters, balloons, face painting, games and prizes. At 4 p.m., children’s theater actor Paul der Tiefflieger gives a performance, followed by the family-friendly Ritter Rost Band performing songs from children’s musicals.

On Sunday from 1 to 6 p.m., find 10 thematic play areas scattered throughout the city. The Schloss Almoshof area offers activities based on air, such as a bouncy castle, kite flying and bubble blowing; Imbuschstrasse becomes a jungle; Villa Leon offers experimental stations and a ride in a giant inflatable ball; Kulturladen Röthenbach brings visitors to the Middle Ages; Kinderhort Wandererstrasse offers a “time machine”; and Hort am Förderzentrum Sperberstrasse becomes the land of the Incas and Aztecs.

Activities on both days are free. For details and addresses of the play sites, see (German only).
