Are you and/or your children a fan of the Harry Potter world? What if there's a possibility to be a part of that magical world, just a 2h drive away?
A few days ago, I posted on the TravelmatKanner facebook page about my family's experience staying a weekend at the Harry Potter tent, which is located approximately a 2hr drive away from Luxembourg, direction Nancy, France.
I received many messages from people saying they loved the idea, some parents saying they would gift this stay to their children and others who asked me to write an article about it, so more people can experience the magical world of Harry Potter!
So, if you or your children, or your friends are fans of the Harry Potter books, movies and the magical wizard universe, this is definitely something for you!
Plus, you don't have to travel far to enjoy it...
You will be delighted to know, that approximately 2hrs from Luxembourg (direction Nancy, France) there is a lovely natural eco-lodge site called Etat-Nature, where you can find a Harry Potter tent that can accommodate 4 people. It's guaranteed to mesmerize you, and all the guests at first sight!
Everything is Harry Potter related.
E v e r y t h i n g!
The eco-lodge site is located at an idyllic place next to the lake, with rail bike installation. There you can find the "Harry Potter" themed tent, a "Tippi" tent, a wooden caravan, a wooden house, a larger round tent, a Jacuzzi, and of course an equipped kitchen. Toilets, showers, and even a small restaurant are all on site.
The scenery is lusciously green, surrounded by many beautiful trees with a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Basically everything you need to disconnect for a weekend in nature, while making everyone else harrypotterishly happy, including yourself.
When we opened the door of the tent, a whole Harry Potter Universe opened before our eyes:
Harry Potter Decorations, Harry Potter Board Games, Harry Potter Clothing, Harry Potter books (in French), Harry Potter bed sheets and more…
The children were spellbound and happy. We played every game, we took lovely photos, we did role play, read parts of the books, walked in nature …
And when the night came, the tent transformed became more magical, with the Hogwarts logo lightening up the tent, our laughs and giggles echoing through the evening. We could also hear owls (real ones), it was quiet, and beautiful…
The tent is equipped with bed sheets, towels and also a heating system, including breakfast; you can also pre-order your dinner when you make the booking.
If you want to explore more around the area, here are some ideas of what to do and see:
1. Visit Nancy
Nancy is a beautiful French city, famous for its remarkable Stanislas square.
2. Visit Baccarat, worldwide famous for its crystals
The city is known for the French luxury brand and manufacturer of crystals.
3. Spend a great day at theme park: Fraispertuis City
That's actually what we did! A great theme park, only a 20 minutes drive away from the Harry Potter tent. Children as of 1m height can enjoy almost every ride either alone, or accompanied by an adult.
The theme of the park is Wild West and Pirates! Just make sure to check opening hours and days, as the park opens seasonally. In September it's open only during weekends.
The park was recently awarded 2 trophies for its newest ride "Draisines", at the Park World Excellence Awards. Indeed, it’s a great ride!!! We gave it a go and we can vouch for it!
Known for its ski resort and beautiful landscapes, but most importantly, not that far away either!
5. Epinal and its spectacular planetarium
And last but not least, there is another great Harry Potter themed event coming soon not far from Luxembourg, this time in Brussels:
From 5 November 2022, A Forbidden Forest Experience Awaits:
You can check all details and book tickets here.
We hope you find this useful, if you do stay at the Harry Potter tent let us know how you and the children liked it!
Some extra love: The owner of Etat-Nature and the Harry Potter Tent, Mireille, will offer an aperitif to the first 5 people who will book with reference “TravelmatKanner”!
Enjoy and let’z TravelmatKanner
