Brussels for kids and teenagers

Still looking for some fun activities to occupy your kids? From toddlers bursting with energy, to fussy teenagers and from little scientists or budding artists to incorrigable gamers, children will never be bored this spring in Brussels!

...and especially not this time of year when a whole host of irresistible events are planned!

A Smurf village, the circus and a science festival are coming to town, as are parties, cosplay, and animated films... diaries at the ready! 

  • April is all about science, Star Wars and even more circus shows!

  • Brussels is steadily making a name for itself in the world of circus, that much is clear. In April Hopla will be taking over the neighbourhood around place Sainte Catherine. Free activities and entertainment, along with shows by circus artists await; who can resist? 

    You must come from a galaxy far far away if you don't see the attraction of the Star Wars saga. From April to September, Belgian and international fans can marvel at costumes, props and other relics from the cult series thanks to STAR WARS™ Identities.

    The I love Science Festival, Brussels' brand new science festival is a must for children and adults alike. Finally you'll know how science impacts your daily life and how in the future it will reveal even more.

    A bonus tip for those who are looking for an ecologically responsible outdoor activity: from 11 April, kids and adults can head to Le Sortilège for an exciting adventure straight out of the Middle Ages!

  • May: it's party time!

  • Brussels is in party mode in May as it celebrates the Iris Festival, the Brussels-Capital Region's diverse and free birthday party! Then one week later, it's time to join in the fun, once again, for the Zinneke Parade.

  • June: come to Brussels to meet the Smurfs!

  • In June our favourite little blue characters will be moving their whole village to Brussels for 6 months, to celebrate their 60th birthday at the Smurf Experience.

    Every year, the Carolus Family Day shows that history isn't just interesting, it's also fun and surprising. Don't miss this golden opportunity to get your (grand)children excited about Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, his palace and the origins of Belgium and Europe as a whole.

    Last but not least, SuperVliegSuperMouche - Brussels' coulourful art festival for kids - also takes place in May. Here your little ones can get stuck in and let their creative side loose.
