Glasstadt Zwiesel



Zwiesel Kinderland Association

In the Bavarian Forest, the Kinderland Bears, a brand introduced in Bavaria which is synonymous with family friendly holidays. Your host uses this common brand for classification of accommodation, places and facilities as a clear symbol of their special equipment and services for families with children: they belong to Kinderland Bavaria. And we know in Zwiesel that children are demanding guests. That is why there are stringent requirements for farms, holiday apartments, hotels or campsites to fulfil in order to receive three, four or even five bears.

The places classified by Bavaria Tourismus Marketing GmbH must meet over 50 criteria, to be awarded at least three bears. To get four bears they have to be even more focussed on families. And five bear places have offer everything which children desire.

They have to always provide thorough advance information for the whole family, personal care during the holiday and regular information on special offers, even when the family has long been back at home.
