Now that the sun’s appeared are you ready to take your chances and host a birthday party outside? City Savvy’s Tina Pace took her search outdoors in the Duchy to find the perfect spot.
Alpaca Petting Party
This pedagogical farm is the only one in Luxembourg that can offer your child the chance to look after an alpaca for their special day! The children get to muck out the stables, make up the special muesli and then walk their alpacas whilst listening to a talk on the origins and behaviours of these cuddly creatures. Your child will also have a chance to meet dwarf goats and Galloway cows. Two adults maximum are allowed for the party, but the owners will take great care of your kids! Maximum 10 children; from 3-year-olds and upwards.
The Thein family opens their farm for kids birthday parties that include feeding and petting animals, a tractor ride and learning about everyday life on the farm. Bring your own food, drink and cake. A reservation is required during summer months.
Where: 5 rue bei Berck, Goeblange
Damage: 11-19€ per child

Children are given a tour of the mill and will see how bread is made. They will then get to make their own rolls, pastries and pizza, followed by a duck race on the river and a treasure hunt.
If you’re looking for something more adventurous, Parc Le’H Adventures has outdoor climbing and obstacle courses for all ages and levels. You bring the cake, they’ll provide the climbing equipment, meat, BBQ or pizza.
The youth hostel in Echternach will help you organize your child’s birthday party to your liking with activities such as geocaching, wall climbing and trampoline jumping. While some activities are suitable for children starting at age 4, the 6+ crowd is really going to enjoy this venue. Open from 1 May to 31 October.
