10x Christmas break activities for kids

Ice skating, visiting theaters, magical light art, game halls, and drinking lots of hot chocolate: the Christmas holidays are almost here! It's time to go out and have a good time. Here's some inspiration for the whole family!

Show off your ice skating skills 

Looking for a great winter activity? Then ice skating it is! In case of no Elfstedentocht (again) this year, there's always IJsportcentrum Eindhoven. Looking for a winter wonderland? This year, you can race against other kids or show your figure skating skills on the ice rink of Winter Garden

Grab a hot cacao and chill

Need something to warm you up between activities? Let's grab a hot chocolate. It's not only delicious, but it's also a moment of zen for the parents. Drop by at Meneer de Boer or Sissy-Boy, or check out our complete list of hot chocolate spots

Visit the Christmas Winter Circus

The Christmas Winter Circus has been a top activity for kids (and the rest of the family, of course) for quite some time. With funny clowns, breathtaking acts, hair-raising stunts, and more. This year, they're celebrating a brand-new edition at Parktheater. Get your tickets while they're hot!

Philips Museum

Exciting scavenger hunt at Philips Museum

At the Philips Museum, children can go on a scavenger hunt every single day. Using UV lights and a treasure map, they can search for clues to find the hidden treasures during Mission Eureka. Once found, a pleasant surprise is waiting for them. Bonus tip: the Museum Kids Factory.

Motion Winter of Lights

Step into a fantasy world full of imagination, emotion, and fun. Each season, Motion Imagination Experience transforms into a luminous paradise, from eating next to the Mona Lisa to swinging on a glacier. Every Wednesday afternoon or on weekends, there are extra activities for the kids.

Bring on the winter

Dreaming of a white Christmas? At the Genneper Parks Pavilion it will be one big Winter Wonderland. For the kids, the park has bouncy castles, marshmallows, a playground and you can practice your schwung during a game of mini golf. Hole-in-one!

Go on an adventure at De Ontdekfabriek

Another fun activity: going on creative adventures! Discover, play and experience. At De Ontdekfabriek at Strijp-S, children can go wild. Good to know: they'll open their doors more often during school breaks! 

Ontdekfabriek Strijp-S

Sparkling visit to the past

Find yourself being mesmerized by millions of lights at Lumina Park. After big cities such as Prague and Budapest, now the garden of the Evoluon is turning into an enchanted forest full of illuminated artworks with a nod to history.

Jump around!

This activity will get the kids going, for sure: trampoline jumping. From skits and somersaults to jumping as high as possible and a 'Wipe Out', it's all possible at Jumpsquare or Bounce Valley. 

Gaming, gaming, and more gaming!

Attention teenagers! Gamestate is a gaming Valhalla. They've got a wide selection of arcades: from Mario Kart to pinball. So, upgrade your playing card and game on!
