Are you planning a trip with your children to the wonderful city of Liege? It can be hard enough to entertain them at home so we have put together a handy guide with lots of activities to keep you both busy!
One of the top activities with children in Liege is hiking. This will give you all a chance to explore the beautiful scenery and tire out the little ones so you will have some peace in the evening! Vallee du Ninglinspo (30 mins drive from the hotel) is one of the top locations for a manageable and interesting walk with plenty of waterfalls and other natural attractions along the way. We know how expensive entertaining children can be, luckily this one is completely free! Pack an inexpensive lunch and enjoy your day in the wild.
Keep yourself and the kids active with a trip to Patinoire Liège, our huge indoor ice rink and sports centre. Local ice hockey teams often practise there so if you time it right you may be able to catch one of their exciting matches in person. You can visit all year-round, hire skates on site and have a day of fun and exercise. There are often family-friendly events arranged too so keep your eye on their website.
If you want to discover the delights of the world, without getting your feet wet or dirty, the Aquarium- Museum is the place for you. They have an astonishing 20,000 specimens of animal and marine life to view and study. The museum is a colourful place, ideal for children to learn and discover all sorts of new and interesting facts about their favourite animals, and some they didn’t even know existed! The museum is suitable for children of all ages.
Another great museum to keep the little ones occupied and entertained is Musee en Plein Air du Sart-Tilman which is a short 20-minute drive from us. It is no ordinary museum, no boring or dusty exhibitions in an old building. Musee en Plein Air is exactly what it describes, an outdoor ‘museum’ in a picturesque forest giving visitors the opportunity explore and view an interesting collection of historic sculptures and beautiful walkways. It is a novel and unique experience and it’s possible to visit in all weathers.
The first thing to think about when planning a trip with your family is where you will stay. You need a hotel that is safe, secure and family-friendly. Luckily the Ramada Plaza Hotel Liege is just that. We offer the luxury adults love when they visit hotels and the space children need to be their fun-loving selves! We even have a special family offer which includes a B&B, a welcome drink and a fun-pack for the kids, it might keep them occupied for an hour!
Our friendly staff are always available, either to make a booking or to find out more about the hotel or the area. We look forward to welcoming you and your family.
