The City of Luxembourg is offering a range of fun outdoor activities, including a number of sports, at Kinnekswiss (situated between Champ du Glacis and Avenue de la Porte Neuve) in the municipal park from 12 July to 5 September between 11:30 and 19:30 (weather permitting).
Get moving and have fun, there's something for everyone
The programme includes a number of increasingly popular sporting activities, such as football tennis (which combines elements of the two sports), slacklining (which consists of walking or balancing on a slightly elastic length of flat webbing suspended between two anchors) and cross boccia (a modern version of pétanque). It also includes more conventional sports (such as football, rugby, badminton and volleyball) and other lesser knows sports (such as frisbee, indiaca, croquet and field hockey), as well as a host of fun activities (such as crossminton, rope-skipping, bassalo, smolball, indiaca-tennis, mini-golf and sack races), games requiring dexterity and coordination (such as pogo stick, plumefoot, XXL Mikado and Leitergolf) and circus activities.
All of the sporting activities at the Kinnekswiss will be supervised by trained sports instructors and coordinators.
Participation is free – simply show up and have fun
There is no need to sign up in advance and participation is free. The sports equipment required will also be provided free of charge. Participation in the activities is at your own risk, though, and parents and educators are responsible for children in their care. In addition, participants must adhere to all applicable public health measures.
Trampolines in Merl Park
The "Jump for fun" trampoline box in Merl Park will be back from 16 July to 12 September 2021! Both kids and adults can bounce around for free on the 12 trampolines that are open to the public every day from noon to 20:00 (weather permitting).
The "Kinnekswiss: sport et détente au cœur de la Ville" (Kinnekswiss: sports and recreation in the heart of the city) and "Jump for fun" projects are joint initiatives of the Service Sports (Sports Department), which oversees the sports and leisure programme, as well as the Service Parcs (Parks Department) and Service Hygiène (Sanitation Department), which maintain the city's parks and raise awareness among the public about DOs and DONTs in these shared spaces.
