Last time updated

While some people want a special experience and adventure, others want to celebrate with their families or are looking for a special event for children. We've put together some options for adult children to make your birthday party special.

In swimming pool or SPA

You can spend the day in one of the indoor swimming pools of the Grand Duchy. For example, visit the water center in Mersch. In addition to pools for every taste, this aquatic oasis offers various saunas, Turkish baths, and whirlpools, as well as a poolside bistro and a daily buffet from 12:00 to 2:30 pm for 15.50 euros. In summer, you can sit on the outdoor terrace, which offers a panoramic view of the entire valley.

If you are thinking about how to enjoy your child's birthday, choose the Centre de Nation An der Schwemm in Bettembourg. The swimming pool offers a special activity which is an unforgettable birthday party for children. The party itself lasts for 3 hours and the maximum number of participants is 15 guests.

Thermals, aquatic centers, swimming pools, and SPA - there are plenty of places in Luxembourg where you can relax and swim. Our article «Swimming pools of Luxembourg: places to relax and swim» can help you compare the different options and choose the right one.

At home with an animator

If you like a homelike atmosphere and gathering with friends around the table, then this is your option. You can call in animators for both children and adults.

In a cafe, restaurant, bar

In Luxembourg, you can find restaurants for every taste – Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Peruvian, Brazilian, Mediterranean, French, Italian, and any other cuisine available to gourmets. Here are just a few possible options.

If you are going to come to any of these restaurants, we advise you to book a table in advance.

Luxembourg's national cuisine

At Restaurant Mousel's Cantine you can taste Luxembourg's national cuisine. For example, you can get a tasty and lean knuckle or a meat platter with sauerkraut and finish it all off with a strong Luxembourg pine-flavored liqueur. For those who don't appreciate liqueurs, there is an alternative in the form of local beer Clausel.

French cuisine

And if you're a connoisseur of French cuisine, spend your special day at Restaurant Clairefontaine. Impressive interior, delicious foie gras, chicken and shrimp. As dessert, parfait, cupcakes and soufflés. And, of course, good wine, champagne or liquor.

Italian cuisine

Enjoy Italian cuisine at the Cavalli Room Restaurant. Tortellini, terrine, pizza, and various drinks, like wine and beer for your perfect party.

Greek and Mediterranean flair

For Greek and Mediterranean flair one should go to Ambrosia Restaurant where you can enjoy perfectly cooked moussaka, grilled lamb and calamari. You will also be offered good homemade wine, liqueurs and white wine.

Brazilian cuisine

If you want something special, you can stop by Batucada and experience Brazilian cuisine. The romantic atmosphere of this place will suit those who want to celebrate a birthday only with the other half. It is worth to try ribeye, grilled octopus, salad with salmon, and from drinks - mojito or liquor.

In climbing center

Would you like bright emotions and adventures on your birthday? Take a climbing lesson, it's available for both adults and children (keep in mind that kids up to 14 years old need to be accompanied by an adult).

For example, you can visit the largest climbing center in Luxebmourg RedRock, or Wall d'Coque in the sports center in the City, or the climbing wall of the youth hostel in Echternach.

In the quest room

In case you are not ready for active sports, but want to have a new experience, join a quest. Relive the adventure in a new reality, limited to a few rooms with puzzles and riddles. You can choose a quest, for example, on the website of Crocus Quest Games.

On the trampoline

Birthdays are our favorite childhood celebrations. Take your friends and go to the bouncy park with trampolines. Kids will enjoy this place as well. However, keep in mind that they must be over 3 years old and will be allowed only when accompanied by an adult. You can order a party with a birthday cake with candles and have a great time in the cool company of friends and family.

You can also spend your special day however you want and tell us about your experience via Telegram or email
