Discovering Luxembourg and Surroundings – Rosport fun by the lake

Hello there! Yesterday we decided to explore one more family-friendly place in Luxembourg. I confess that I’m quite surprised when I realise that even after almost 5 years living in the Grand-Duchy (how times fly…), there are still so many fun places to discover!! 🙂

So let me present you the lovelly village of Rosport and it’s amazing promenade by the Saurlake.


So, grab some snacks and your picnic blanket and head to Rosport (address below). As soon as you arrive, you are presented by this gorgeous nature view… And, as soon as you park your car (and even before that), you’ll spot the huge playground, with an “adventure park” style.



There are some picnic tables here and there and a huge table by the fortress (perfect for big groups) and plenty of space for picnic blankets with good shadows if desired. There were also some groups doing bbq (you need to bring your own – if you don’t have a portable bbq, just buy a cheap disposable one – many supermarkets and gas stations sell them).

The playground itself is very well structured with different areas suitable for different ages. There is also a water play area (yesterday the water was still off, but should be on soon), though I freak out with the slippery side of water play areas… A cute detail is an open-air (and free use) library with some nice wodden lounge chairs (behind the amphitheatre). Finally, a very important detail to know of is that the is also a public toilet (quite clean) by the library.

Address: rue du Barrage, Rosport

Summer in the city!

Are you here during the summer? If so, I believe you’d like to know there are some very good and free initiatives around the city:

New playground (spillplaz) in the centre, right next to the Theatre des Capucins (rue des Capucins). Good to know if you are shopping in the city and the kids need a little break 🙂
