News | 04/06/2023 How Liebherr also inspires little ones: adventure playground opens in Ravensburger Spieleland

Ravensburger Spieleland and the Liebherr Group are joining forces: the new Liebherr adventure playground opened with the start of the theme park’s 2023 season on an area of over 1,300 square metres. At the “Liebherr-Erlebnisspielplatz” in Ravensburger Spieleland, visitors young and old can immerse themselves in the fascinating world of Liebherr. Numerous machines invite them to romp around, and visitors can also find out about the Liebherr Group and Liebherr as an employer on display boards.

At the Liebherr adventure playground, children learn about the Group's product world through play.

On 1,300 m2 romping, climbing and playing is the name of the game. A tower crane, a mobile crane, an excavator and a truck mixer were specially built from wood for this purpose.

Even the little ones can try their hand at driving an excavator.

The Group presents itself with information boards and accompanying games, such as a product segment memory.

With the digital "BioFresh" touchscreen game, children learn about the storage of food in refrigerators.

With a circuit board sliding game, it's time to dive into the world of electronics and components.

With a ropeway, children can jump out of a helicopter. Inside, there are exciting things to discover about Liebherr-Aerospace.

The playground can be seen from afar at Ravensburger Spieleland.

"Liebherr and Ravensburger have a lot in common. Both fascinate people with their products and both have deep ties to the region. There are numerous Liebherr sites in the vicinity of Ravensburger Spieleland – from Upper Swabia to Allgäu and Vorarlberg," says Iris Beyer, Director of Human Resources, Liebherr-Electronics and Drives GmbH. Ulrich Thalhofer, Director of Human Resources, Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, adds: "The playground is also something special for our employees. In many families, entire generations have already worked at Liebherr. At the Liebherr adventure playground, they can show their children what they do at work."

Experiencing Liebherr through play

At the Liebherr adventure playground, a 4.5-metre-long truck mixer with a driver's cab, many play levels and a slide awaits guests. From there, children can go straight to the next highlight, the 2.5-metre-long excavator, via a climbing course. From the excavator shovel, they go over the boom into the interior of the excavator and its driver's cabin. Next door, climbing is the order of the day on the 4.5-metre-long mobile crane with its steep ramp. A view over the entire playground can be seen from the five-metre-high crane with nest swing. The container playhouse next door offers climbing and playing fun on two levels in an original shipping container. An original tyre of a T236 mining truck invites visitors to play hide and seek. A jump on a plate swing directly from a helicopter is also part of the playground. In addition, the variety of products Liebherr develops for the aviation industry can be discovered in the helicopter.

In addition to the playground equipment, visitors can learn about Liebherr's wide range of products in an XXL-memory®. There are also knowledge games on the topics of logistics, electronics or Bionics. Young visitors can also immerse themselves in the world of refrigerators and freezers: among other things, with the touchscreen game “BioFresh” about the correct storage and the sustainable handling of food.

One year of planning and development

It took just under a year from the initial idea to the opening of the Liebherr adventure playground. Different Liebherr product segments were involved in the project. Together, they came up with many different ideas for games and activities. Liebherr apprentices were especially involved in the creation of the playground. Beside ideas for games and wall charts, they made benches in two of Liebherr's apprentice workshops. One resembles the chain-linked crawler track travel gears on which some construction machines move the other is a refashioned part of a concrete pump, that apprentices equipped with wooden seating.
