The Ville de Luxembourg is once again providing free sports equipment to visitors to the Kinnekswiss meadow in the city park.
The Kinnekswiss meadow in the city park, near the Glacis, is one of the most popular hang outs for residents of the capital on a warm summer day. The Ville de Luxembourg erects a shed there during the school holidays allowing visitors to rent for free sports equipment that they can use on the meadow.
As well as familiar sports such as football, badminton and Frisbee, the kiosk also rents out equipment for Indiaca and what will be new games for many, such as Viking chess (or Kubb), a cross between skittle and chess, which is becoming very popular among students and hipsters everywhere it seems.
Equipment can be hired out for free every day between 11.30am and 7.30pm.
The Kinnekswiss is also the venue for weekly courses in qi gong on Fridays at 12.30pm and tai chi on Wednesdays at 6pm.
Meanwhile, the Ville de Luxembourg has also made available individual chairs to anyone looking to spend a few minutes, or even an hour or two, relaxing in the park. The chairs are available at the Kinnekswiss, near the pirate ship playground, in Merl Park and in Tony Neuman park in Limpertsberg.
Users can move the chairs to wherever they feel most comfortable--in the shade or in the sun--but are asked to respect the service and return them after use.
