During childhood, chances are high that kids will develop an interest in LEGO, Playmobil or Dinosaurs - or all three!
And apart from playing with them, there are several other experiences for children to enjoy their favourites in and around Luxembourg.
Lego Discovery Center in Brussels, Belgium
A brand new venue for the LEGO lovers and not only that has everything for a fun day: many bricks of course, 4D Cinema, Mini Word, Creative Club, Play area Build Adventures, Minifigure Creator, LEGO Café, the Tree of Imagination, Spaceship Build and Scan, Workshops and even a Duplo Park for the smaller children.
I know, you are reading this and you are already planning your next visit to Brussels. After all, it is not so far from Luxembourg.
More information about this amazing LEGO experience here.
Lego Store Saarbrücken, Germany
Although it is a LEGO store, it has nice play corners, the staff is very friendly and children can really spend some quality time inside the store to play with LEGOS. Like this they will also forget that you spend the rest of the day shopping and they are tired…just kidding…
You can find more information here.
Bricks4Kidz.lu offers workshops and activities, children birthday parties and holiday camps, with LEGO Bricks and is located in our Luxembourg. My kids loved it and I think your kids will like it too.

Children and adults can enjoy dinosaurs in many natural history museums around Luxembourg, for example, in Brussels and Paris.
However our list here has some Dinosaur Parks where you can see real life dinosaur animatronics, offering a more interactive visit than most museums for your dinosaur-obsessed little ones.
Dino Park Teufelsschlucht, Germany
The most well known Dinosaur Park near Luxembourg is the Dino Park Teufelsschlucht.
Very close to Echterrnach, in Germany, this outdoors dinosaur park displays various dinosaurs in real life size with information given in playful ways. It has playgrounds for children and areas where the children can dig fossils, it organises workshops, has a small shop around the theme of dinosaurs, and a family friendly restaurant. In addition it is surrounded by beautiful nature.
A trip to the park could be combined with a visit to Echternach lake or a hike in the natural area of Teufelsschlucht.
Evening events are organised also when the park is beautifully illuminated.

Gondwana - Das Prehistorium, Germany
A great interactive museum about dinosaurs, with a great indoors playground, family friendly restaurant and a nice show with dinosaurs that almost feels like a real Jurassic Park.
In the area you can also visit the Wassergarten der Grube Reden. As described on the website,it has five cascade-like pools of water splash, murmur and steam over a total of 29,000 square meters for the eyes and ears of visitors.
