A family day out

error while rendering document-generation-link

Louvain-la-Neuve is the ideal place to stroll with children, where they can run free in the streets and squares without danger.

10:00-12:00  Special family visit to the Museum L. 
The L Museum offers a fun game for children to explore the museum in an amusing way. Drawings, riddles and observation-based questions will make the museum visit a really fun experience. Don’t leave without testing the « labs » which allow you to get really close to the artworks.

12:00  Picnic or lunch in the city centre. 
Several shady tables await you in the Park of the Spring (parc de la source) for a quiet picnic opposite the Hergé Museum. Or if you prefer something ready-made, you should find something you like in one of the many snack bars and restaurants in the Grand’Rue…

13:30-16:00  Louvain-la-Neuve lake and the Forest of Dreams (Bois des Rêves).
Take a walk or get on your bike, scooter or roller skates to go around the lake. You will see many species of bird and you can also have a break and sit on the grass or play !
In 30 minutes you can walk from the lake to the Forest of Dreams and its enormous playground, which the children will love. The playground is free and has a huge car park. In the middle of the park, the Water and Fountain Museum (Musée de l’Eau et de la Fontaine) immerses children in the aquatic world and the use of water in our everyday life during fun workshops on Wednesday afternoons and at weekends.

16:30 Tea break.
If the Carette ice-cream van isn’t nearby, you can go into the centre of Ottignies and sit inside or outside. Pancakes, ice-creams and milk-shakes should satisfy even the hungriest… a «must-go» place we are sure you will love !
