1. The Model Museum, for lovers of History

Who has never been fascinated by models? While your grandkid will be fascinated by the realism of Luxembourg's castles built to 1/100 scale, you will learn more about their history during the visit. For an hour or more depending on your interest, you will benefit from audio and visual information to complete the visit. This will also make it easier for you to explain the life of yesteryear to your grandchildren.

Opening hours: from 10 am to 6 pm, Tuesday to Sunday (from May 1st to October 31st). The rest of the year, the museum is open to the public during the weekend. Free for children, 3.50 € for adults. 

2. Nature as a playground: a geocaching hike!

Geocaching has become more and more popular with families in recent years. It combines the pleasure of walking with the excitement of treasure hunting. The principle is quite simple. First of all, you have to register on the geocaching.com website. You will then be able to discover all the objects (called geocaches) hidden nearby. Make a note of the GPS coordinates of the geocache you wish to find,... and the hunt can begin! All of them have a level of difficulty, corresponding to their size and the difficulty to find them. Each geocache contains a notebook in which you can report your passage and sometimes even small gifts. 


3. Workshops to rediscover regional know-how

At the Robbesscheier, we stop time for a day to rediscover the local craftsmanship. Your grandchildren will enjoy the various workshops on offer. You will learn how breads and pastries were prepared and baked at the time (and tasted), as well as the work of the forge is the preparation of horseshoes. You will also be able to create your own candle from beeswax or wool weaving. About fifteen workshops are thus proposed for you to choose from. It is possible to do up to 4 workshops in one afternoon, but be sure, the children will be asking to go back!

Opening hours: Open all year round. You can choose between a day or an afternoon of activities.

4. Photography accessible to the youngest

The exhibition The Family of Man at the Château de Clervaux offers special tours for children. Don't miss this opportunity to treat yourself by browsing the galleries of this Unesco memorial while sharing the experience with your grandchildren. At the entrance, ask for the small Family of Man for Kids kit, which contains a backpack, coloured pencils and an expedition book. Through the stories it tells, the younger ones will have the opportunity to learn about the works in a more playful way.

Opening hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 12 noon to 6 pm, March to December.

5. Mini-farm, playground and toy museum

A few years ago, the Toy Museum in the town centre of Clervaux moved to Munshausen, to the Robbesscheier estate.  The mini-farm is also open to the public as well as the playground. You can therefore come for an afternoon stroll in the gardens and enjoy the facilities of the Domaine. The Toy Museum is always a real moment of escape for children who enjoy discovering the games of yesteryear. At your exit, goats, rabbits, donkeys, chickens and others will be waiting for you on the course!

Schedules: Open all year round. Ask for access to the Toy Museum at the reception desk.

6. A game of fun, mini golf

Haaaa miniature golf. This may be one of the favourite activities of 7 - 12 year olds. And the recently renovated mini-golf course in Clervaux is a little gem. The 18 holes run through gardens and lakes, all in a relaxed atmosphere. Situated in the centre of the village, on the campsite site, you just have to go to the reception to get the clubs and balls.

Hours: The miniature golf course is open all year round and is located in the centre of Clervaux, next to the official Clervaux camping.
