I’m a sucker for the Ardennes, I love it. The air is just so fresh and clean, nature at its best. This educational park is located in a large forest with a large playground, climbing walls, a worm box (my daughter loves worms) and lots of paths to run around. It’s fun, it’s educational, it’s nature, that comes with a cafe that serves alcohol. What more could you want out of a Saturday trip?

The menu at the cafe is fairly reasonably priced so don’t bother lugging out a cooler and a packed lunch unless you really would like to (ex, kids menu: sandwiches are 4 euro, meatballs and fries 6 euro). But I would bring snacks and water from home.
The park is designed to walk around in a set path explaining things in the natural world, but if the kids are just not into it, you can go straight to the playground with no problems.
