The last thing parents want to think about in the summer are those nasty rainy dayswhere you feel trapped inside. Sure, you could watch a movie or do a fun craft, but Delano has a few indoor options that still get you and your family out of the house.
ZigZag brings the outside inside with two large playgrounds. Minizigs is the perfect place for kids under 3 to gain confidence in themselves and learn to socialise while having fun in a fully padded area.
The older kids, up to age 10, have their own space with 3 floors including an obstacle course, foam slides, a ball pool and more, making it a great place to run off all of that pent-up rainy-day energy.
The only down side: they’re closed from 31 July to 15 August.
Mudam has a year-round programme for 6- to 12-year-olds called Mudamini. The programme offers guided tours, an interactive trail called “Mudam Go” and creative workshops.
Meanwhile, the younger ones who are between 3 and 5 years old can take a fairy tale tour which includes a selection of artworks, each one with a special story. The programme has events going on throughout the summer. Tours are offered in multiple languages, including English.
If the kids are begging to go swimming despite the chance of a storm, take them to one of Luxembourg’s indoor pools such as Les Thermes. There’s a 25m swimming pool, a pool for beginners and a baby pool. They even have a wave pool and 30m turbo waterslide.
The place also includes bars and restaurants and a full spa, that is, if you can get the kids to leave the water.
