Childcare during School Holidays

It can be especially challenging for staff and students to organise childcare during school holidays.

Therefore, in cooperation with other institutions, the University of Kassel, offers a variety of options for holiday childcare. You can find current information on this page.


 Due to the Corona pandemic, the Stadtkinder will not take place in 2021.


 Due to the Corona pandemic, the Sternental Children’s City will not take place in 2021.


During the summer holidays, the Children’s City Sternental welcomes children between the ages of six and 13 years. Here they can learn through play how social, political, and economic life works in a city. This popular holiday activity takes place at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Kassel. Up to 150 children can take part in the colourful city life here and try out different occupations. No city would be complete without a university and so the University of Kassel also participates in activities at the children’s city.
