Ultimate Guide to Summer Fun

by Elfi Koufogeorgou

There are endless activities and ideas for summer fun in, around and beyond Luxembourg. To get you started our partners at TravelmatKanner have compiled a list to get you started on your summertime adventures!

Summer in the City

Despite the fact that the Schuberfouer is cancelled because of the pandemic, several spots have been reserved in the city of Luxembourg for attractions for families and little ones. You’ll find carousels, different games, rides and more to enjoy scattered across Luxembourg. Most of the attractions are free, and there will also be some delicious gastronomic choices on offer.

Also be sure not to miss the open air cinema in Glacis, the Beach at the Place du Theatre and various attractions at Park Kinnekswiss.

More details and the full program is available here.

Visit Minett 

Different themes available, for different budgets and in various languages. Visit the website and have fun discovering all that is on offer.

Dinosaur Expo in the Rockhal 

Expect dinosaurs in real sizes making sounds and moving. It’s a virtual reality experience with an area for kids to search for dinosaurs fossils. You need to reserve your tickets online

Les Nuits de Lampion in Wiltz

(17&18) September 

The 12th edition of this amazing festival is coming back this year on September 17th &. 18th. You’ll find glowing installations, concerts and much more. For all details and COVID 19 restriction applied to the event, check the Facebook event page.

Original ideas as recommended by TravelmatKanner

(Luxembourg)

Idea #1:
Take the kids to enjoy time with the goats at Gremmlichter Geessenhaff. This farm is located in Grummelscheid Luxembourg and the little goats are blessed with what we call “cuteness overload”. For the parents there are also goat products to purchase like Yiammi goat cheese!

As with all venues contact the establishment before visiting! 

Idea #2:

We love to visit the most adorable miniature donkeys in Luxembourg and think you should pay them a visit too. Linda and Sasha’s farm in Platten is a great way to spend quality time with your family. Before your visit contact Linda via the Facebook page LAMs Miniature Donkeys  The farm is open during the month of August! 

Idea #3:

Visit a nature reserve. Luxembourg has many nature reserves with rich fauna and flora. They make a great hiking destination and in some of them, like for example in Schlammwiss, you can have a family guided tour to get to know more about birds in Luxembourg. 

All nature reserves in Luxembourg are listed here!

Idea #4:

Visit Luxembourg’s first mindfulness trail in Schuttrange. The trail was inaugurated just a few days ago and although we haven’t visited it yet, we love the concept so much that we definitely wanted to include it in our recommendations. 

Idea #5:

Visit the Grand Ducal Palace in Luxembourg. Yes it is possible, and it’s a great opportunity as the guided tours only happen during summer months. For details and bookings you can check here as well as the Tourist office of Luxembourg City.

Idea #6:

Take a hot air balloon ride. TravelmatKanner recently wrote about their experience flying with New Spirit Balloons. Indeed this is a unique and once in a lifetime experience so if you have it on your bucket list we highly recommend taking flight
