    What are some things to do with Children in Luxembourg, southern Belgium, and south east Germany?

    Hello I am the writer of the blog mentioned in the previous post http://www.abitoflux.com (thanks!). A few things to do in Luxembourg would be to visit Parc Merveilleux, visit a castle (Vianden), take a ride on a steam train from Petange to the Fond de Gras steel/industry museum (kind of small but if you go on one of their 'family fun' days it's a great half day out ( http://www.train1900.lu ). Les Thermes is a nice indoor swim complex with slides and wave pool ( http://www.lesthermes.net/en/arrival.html ). Not visited yet but in Germany there's a place called 'Happy Land' which is a big indoor soft play place with trampolines etc http://www.happyland-bitburg.de , and also Eifelpark nature and theme park which i've heard is worth a visit (http://www.eifelpark.de/index_en.php). In Belgium you could visit the European Space Centre. I have a friend with kids from 6 to 12 (boys and a girl) and they really enjoyed it (http://www.eurospacecenter.be/englishv.html). Brussels is FANTASTIC and well worth a longer weekend trip. Check out a chocolate demonstration, the Museum of Natural sciences (http://www.naturalsciences.be) or Autoworld (http://www.autoworld.be). That should keep you going for a bit! about 7 years ago

    Any good suggestions on things to do in Luxembourg?

    Jim I write a blog and have recently moved to Luxembourg. It may be of interest to you and other readers as we try to get out and about. It's a lovely country as is Belgium and Germany (still not gone down into northern France much yet). Still so much more to discover (and many places do close over winter) but you may want to check in every so often for ideas. http://www.abitoflux.com about 7 years ago

    What to do in Luxembourg for a weekend?

    I would take a walk around the old town and Clausen (chocolate box pretty). Visit the Casemates and Notre Dame cathedral (if that's your thing). Go then see a few museums - the Lux History Museum, check out contemporary art at Casino Luxembourg and MUDAM (and adjoining Fortress Museum Dräi Eechelen). Eat at a michelin starred restaurant or two. If you go in summer, go up to Vianden Castle and ride the cable car, or somewhere like Echtenach which is pretty and has an Abbey, churches and a picturesque market square which hosts a small brocante on occasional Sundays. Go out east to the Moselle area and sample some Cremant (it's essentially Champagne and really very good). Go to a concert or play at the Philarmonie or National Theatre, and then head for Clausen for a convivial and boozy night in the picturesque old town. Stay at hip hotel Melia in Kirchberg. I write a blog and hardly ever get to do these things because I have young children (!) but that's what I would do if I had the time..we try to get out and about as much as possible however and there's some ideas for things to do with kids.
