The Lighthouse & The Fishermans House
The fishing boat is equipped with a rudder and compass, so that the children have acces to all the tools they need to navigate the boat safely into port.
The bravest of the children can balance and jump from bend to bend, but be careful you may get wet feets! There is a fishnet on the tires where children can balance, climb or just relax. In the center of the playground you will find the 5 m high lighthouse as the landmark of the playground. A spiral staircase inside the lighthouse leads up to the 3 m high slide. From here you will have a full view of the playground.

There are many different ways to reach the top of the lighthouse. If the stairs seem too easy, the children can take a shortcut to the top along the rope ladders on the side of the lighthouse. The fishermans houses are designed with windows and large openings with disks, from which kids can sell the fresh fish. Inside the houses there are tables and benches where children can invite their friends for a cup of coffee or a freshly cooked fish.
