Walk around Château de La Hulpe. We did a 4km stroller friendly hike around the 19th-century castle with lakes and forest.
There are many trails to walk around. We followed a 4km, stroller friendly trail (walk on the paved trail around the lake if you’re with a stroller). You can find it in the last pic or download it here.
Fondation Folon is also in the domain and is worth a visit. It is a wonderful museum to visit with kids. The works of art provide a good starting point for discussions with the vivid colors and the novel designs. Here’s a short guide on Fondation Folon with tips on visiting with kids, so that you know what to expect
