Il Castello Centro Commerciale, Ferrara, Italy

The undisputed centrepiece of the shopping mall in the Italian city of Ferrara, which opened at the end of 2017, is the “Castello” – an expansive play castle complex designed by Richter Spielgeräte GmbH. It consists of five different Castle Towers, which are connected to one another via bridge elements. Here children can climb, crawl, hide away and get immersed in knightly role-playing games to their heart’s content. The may conquer the top level of the castle complex by clambering up various climbing modules, such as Climbing Trunks and Climbing Poles as well as nets and ladders, and then enjoy the view from the top. A long Tunnel Slide allows a quick getaway to the ground. There are also Swings, Swinging Horses and Triangular Platforms with Slides and Climbing Nets in the centre of the “castle courtyard”, which are also suitable for smaller children.
