8x Christmas break activities for kids

Ice skating, visiting theaters and 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. Race other kids on the 400-meter track or show your figure skating skills on one of the ice rinks. 

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 their 50th edition at Parktheater! Get your tickets while they're hot!

Philips Museum

Natlab theater show: When it snows

Are you looking for an activity for preschoolers? Look no further! On 28 December, attend a playful theater show called When it snows at Natlab. About dreams, travel, and snow!

Exciting scavenger hunt at Philips Museum

At the Philips Museum, children can go on a scavenger hunt almost every day. Using UV lights and a treasure map, they search for clues to find the hidden treasure. Once found, a pleasant surprise awaits them.

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. A bonus: they open their doors more often during school breaks! 

Jumping & bouncing at Jumpsquare

An activity guaranteed to get the kids going: trampoline jumping. Skits, somersaults, jumping, it's all possible nearly everyday at Jumpsquare

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!
