Nice ideas for family outings in Luxembourg
Despite its small size, the Grand Duchy is full of open-air activities for small and large budgets. Refine your selection with this checklist of getaways to test with your tribe to go green before the summer.
Moving with your family ... with a child under 3 years old
Although it seems ambitious, this challenge is not unachievable. Even six months old, a baby appreciates contact with nature. With its nap and outdoor dining options, a visit to a zoo or animal park makes sense. The official website generally details the equipment provided. Find out, because some places have play areas dedicated to 0-3 years.
The educational farm also has the advantage of interesting the whole family. Discovery of products from the earth, tasting of raw vegetables ... When is everyone's favorite moment: the caresses to the donkeys and the crazy cavalcade behind the chickens!
Another option is recreation centers, which always have a covered area in case of changing weather conditions. The swimming pool and the varied animations will satisfy young and old. The temperature of the day seems stable and lenient? Put on long clothes, a K-Way, and go for walks on the hiking trails or thematic circuits conducive to discoveries and beautiful moments of complicity.
A breath of fresh air, in the forest or on the water
Small walkers will obviously prefer marked trails, flat or uphill. This does not prevent you from having a good time. Go with a box and a landing net, available at toy stores. They are a relevant tool to tame the fear of insects, specialty of 3-6 years. The greatest will be delighted to deepen their knowledge in natural sciences.
Do not forget the high shoes: Tick-borne diseases are widespread in Luxembourg. Mandatory shower upon return: check carefully for the absence of a small "black ball" hanging on the skin. Bring water bottles, change of clothes and paper towels. The little ones will be able to touch the leaves, to smell the earth, to roll in the mud if they want it ... without worrying too much their mother.
For those who prefer to give in to the mermaids of idleness, there are many nautical bases and outdoor activity areas. At the edge of the water, quiet, you can picnic on the grass or install your barbecue. Why not take the opportunity to go for a boat ride, paddle boat or kayak? Some sites have chosen to associate several disciplines: climbing walls, ziplines and safe play areas mingle with animals.
What good plans does this spring 2019 reserve?
For those with a tight budget, here are the top 3 "free admission" walks to organize a trip to very sweet prices.
1. Ask about nighttime gatherings. Often organized around historical monuments, they are the scene of superb sound and light shows.
2. A great conviviality reigns in the traditional festivals, braderies and flea markets which bloom in the four corners of the country when the good days return. Combine the pleasant to the practical by selling the objects that clutter you, and make the happiness of the youngest ones who will adore "playing the merchant"!
3. Luxembourg does not count anymore the exceptional natural sites. Aficionados of cycling and mountain biking will be delighted to cross the many greenways that cross them. Enjoy this disconnected day with the sweet sound of birds singing, way back to the roots.
