Every year, as part of its "Aktioun Bambësch" programme, the City of Luxembourg's Service Foyers scolaires – Département CAPEL (Childcare Department – Creative Learning Centre) organises its now traditional "Kanner in the City" games festival. The popular event, held on the last weekend in July, is one of the highlights of the Luxembourg City Tourist Office's "Summer an der Stad " / "Summer in the City" programme.

For the event, which revolves around a different theme each year, the city centre is transformed into a giant playground for children, featuring a host of games and workshops to delight children and adults alike.

The festival provides a great opportunity for children aged 4 to 12, and their parents, to romp and rollick to their hearts' content through a host of activities run by "Aktioun Bambësch" coordinators and street performers from all over Europe.

Entry is free.
