Family Activities

Young visitors can have fun on the Vitra Campus too

Are you looking to explore the Vitra Campus, along with its architecture, art and culture, in a child-friendly manner? There are plenty of activities such as guided tours, workshops, family events and attractions such as the little elephant garden or the popular Slide Tower, which are specially designed for young visitors. The campus has something for all ages.


Kinder schauen genau hin, sind kreativ und schöpferisch. Diese Anlagen nutzen wir, um auf spielerische Art Formen, Materialien und Farben zu erkunden, zu vergleichen oder auszuprobieren. Design- und Architekturthemen werden aus einer kindgerechten Perspektive betrachtet. Dabei wird die Fantasie geschult, manuelle Fertigkeiten sollen entwickelt und die Grundlagen von Konstruktion und Statik vermittelt werden. Wir haben es selbst in der Hand, unsere gestaltete Umwelt zu verbessern und zu verschönern – diese selbstbewusste und verantwortungsbetonte Haltung lässt sich in Design- und Architekturworkshops auf ideale Weise erlernen.

Slide Tower

Reaching 30.7 metres in height, the Vitra Slide Tower is simultaneously a viewing platform, slide and work of art. It consists of three diagonal steel columns that meet at the top, with a large revolving clock measuring six metres in diameter mounted at their point of intersection. The tower construction is accessed by a switchback staircase with intermediate landings positioned between the slanted columns. A viewing platform at a height of 17 metres offers an impressive view of the Vitra Campus and its surroundings and is the starting point for the 38-metre-long corkscrew tube slide. We hope you have fun!
