Children's free time is usually difficult to arrange. Adults can change places or activities they do not like without disturbing anyone. Children go to their parents when they are unhappy.
We have collected a few options that will help you spend the weekend with the whole family and, most importantly, save energy and your nerves.
Travel to the countryside
An affordable way to spend time and a great way to get to know the Grand Duchy. The perfect option if your children love to travel. Put them in the car and let's go.
The easiest way to find accommodation outside the city is to visit a specialized website. There is a huge choice of hotels and campsites where you can stay.
It all depends on how far you are willing to travel and your personal preferences. However, there are some popular places.
