Guided tours for children


90-minute workshop for children of approx. 7-13 years

Children come into contact with money at an early age by shopping with their parents or spending their pocket money. The workshop is designed for pupils of primary school age and is intended to give them an understanding of the function and significance of money. The development of the financial world is explained to them in a playful way.
