The ABCs of a Child-Friendly Weekend in Luxembourg

Animals at Parc Merveilleux

Parc Merveilleux is a wonderful place for children and adults alike in the way it bring wildlife and nature to your fingertips.

In this case, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Come face to face with animals big and small, enjoy a walk through nature–or a train ride, have a picnic along the way or perhaps a relaxing drink at the cafe while kids go wild at one of the many exciting playgrounds.

Brunch at Le Paris

Le Paris in Mondorf is another place for everyone, with a fine-dining feel, (some) affordable food, and an outdoor play area for children.

Their menu is reasonably varied and has at least a few vegetarian items on it; by holding the cheese, they can easily be turned vegan as well.

Celts at Bealtaine

On May 19 and 20, the Bealtaine Festival was in Luxembourg town.

Whether you’re a medieval nerd, a sword fanatic, a leather head, a metal head, a child, or none of the above, you’re certain to find entertainment among the various stalls, activities, and shows at this Celtic-themed festival.

At Bealtaine, you can converse with the craftsmen and women on their trade, take your child  from activity to activity, drink local brews, and watch scantily clad grown men play at being gladiators–don’t worry, it’s child appropriate (enough).

If you’re willing to wait until the woods darken, you might catch a fire show as well.
