Pumpkin kisses, harvest wishes! It's time to walk through pumpkin farms, pick up some apples at the orchards and enjoy that freshly pressed apple juice!

Oh how much I love this time of the year :)

The trees are changing colors, the weather is becoming more rainy (not necessarily a bad thing, water is so important for nature, humans and animals, especially after the dry summer we had). Plus, mushrooms will finally make an appearance in the forests again šŸŒ³ together with lots of cute little snailsšŸŒ.

But it is also the time of new beginnings, or endings and the time when apples šŸŽ and pumpkins make their grand appearance...

Would children love to pick up apples and choose their own pumpkins ? Oh yes they would love to! It is always a great family activity that guarantees unforgettable memories and amazing pictures!

Here are some ideas for apple and pumpkin picking in Luxembourg:

1. Open days at the Vergers de Steinsel on 24 and 25 September, from 10:00 to 18:00

It's a huge moment of joy for the kids to be able to touch and feel the pumpkins, chose the ones that we like and see how they grow in the ground. If you go to this farm, I am sure you and the children will love it!
