Kids are off school for a two-week Easter holiday, which is great for them but sometimes a struggle for parents looking for ways to entertain them.
Utopolis comes to the rescue, offering matinee screenings daily at 10.30 a.m., except for holidays, with films like Zootropolis and Kung Fu Panda 3. There is even something for the very youngest fans--short animated films for tots aged 2 to 6. Older kids and parents will get an early Easter treat--the Batman v Superman avant-première at midnight on 22 March, but after that the film will start its regular run, surely to packed audiences!
Besides the trusty cinema, the annual Aktioun Bambësch comes to the rescue, too. Kids who live in Luxembourg City can register for activities from 29 March to 1 April.
Once school’s back on, primary schools will each have a designated day off so that kids can take part in the Octave pilgrimage to the Notre-Dame cathedral. It’s a tradition that started in 1666 and this year runs from 16 April to 1 May. During that time, you can take the kids to the sprawling market that has evolved from a few simple stalls set up to offer the pilgrims’ sustenance--we suggest trying the fried fish.
Kids will probably like another kind of fishing--the kind involving plastic ducks and lots of your pocket change. Indulge them while you can; next thing you know, they’ll be fishing for your car keys.
