“Getting Gröpelingen moving” in Bremen wows visitors with its curved shapes, modern colour scheme and striking large-scale steel play equipment.
Three people can swing at the same time on the giant 6-metre-tall swing with a wave-shaped top beam.
Beyond this lies the slightly tilted “Acceleration” play tower. Once at the top, the curve of the net allows you to look down. The freefall slide mimics a free-falling sensation, complete with an exhilarating feeling, while also serving as a stimulus for play. The wave slide also offers an extra dimension to play, as its shape minimises the effect of gravity.
With its curved structure, the pull-up bar is suitable for fitness exercises. After warm-up exercises on the pull-up bar, the balancing trail offers different degrees of difficulty for children to master. They can test their dexterity and coordination skills on balance spots, ropes and pipes. The wobbly balancing beams and jumplines test their sense of balance, as they have to find their balance as they swing back and forth.
After play or exercise, the modern, sculpted seats with a comfortable reclining net make a nice change and invite you to relax. These also feature a curved design.
