Val de Wanne is an activity center in the Ardennes, where kids can have lots of fun!
Here’s a (very) short video to prove it 🙂
You can sled or ski at the slope. There is a blue slope (beginners) and a red slope (intermediate). There are two lifts, 0.5km and 1km. There is also ski rental and two cross-country ski pistes (3km, 8km)
The real fun is the toboggan!! You cannot possibly capture how much fun this is in a picture, the video does a better job 🙂
In the summer, you can ride down a devalkart (4 wheels, as of 8 years old) or a trike (three wheels, as of 14 years old).
And there are playgrounds and a trampoline for the kids
There is also a wooden maze with 4 towers and a small mountain bike track. You can rent mountain bikes for a guided ride too
The café / restaurant has a great view over the valley. There is hot chocolate and Glühwein, pancakes and burgers
Overall the location is great! There are also horses and other famr animals in the area.
*Open: check here for the opening hours
*Cost: the puzzle pack is a good deal, with EUR 14 you can do everything the whole day
*Stroller friendly, this is best for kids 3+ years old. Youngest siblings can enjoy the small playground
*The road via Trois Ponts is easy. If you go via Wanneranval and then Wanne, it is narrow and steep, best to avoid (ask me how I know 🙂 )
*Free outdoor parking next to the street
About 1.5 hour drive from Schuman, Brussels (or 2.5 hours by public transport)
