Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • An ideal location for discovering Luxembourg City

  • Choose from a range of hiking and mountain biking trails

  • Hop into the saddle with horde riding on parc

The moment you arrive in Larochette, you realise why they call it Little Switzerland. And you’ll understand why this beautiful location makes Birkelt parc such a great idea for a family holiday. For a start, there are those meadows. woodlands and peaceful rivers all around. And that’s before you even get to the parc. Once you do, and the kids see that domed, all-weather swimming pool with its retractable roof, you’ll all be hooked. Although it’s a municipal pool, you and the family can use it free of charge and the roof only opens until the end of June. This futuristic looking pool complex is only one of a long list of impressive facilities, which includes free Wi-Fi. There’s also horse riding, kids’ disco, games and sports, play area, plus an excellent bar, restaurant and take-away. Little Switzerland is a big surprise…

Pools

This parc offers the pool complex from the future. On long summer days, the doors retract to reveal the hot sun. The children are then free to play outside while the adults sunbathe on the terrace or swim a few lengths. With a snake-like waterslide and an outdoor toddler pool, this parc is perfect for little water-lovers.

Weather not so good but the area around the campsite was beautiful. We needed a bit more sun to dry out the muddy paths. Decided to leave early partly because of the weather but also because Sunday travel was potentially easier.

If you're looking for a location with plenty of nightlife this Park, and Luxembourg in general, probably is the wrong choice for you. If on the other hand you're looking for a quiet, relaxing break in stunning countryside book away.
A well run park, set amongst trees, spotlessly clean and with everything you need for a quiet holiday getaway. Opening hours of the shop are somewhat quirky (closing at 5pm means that you cant buy provisions after a day out) and the site needs to look at how some large touring groups do tend to block the roadways - minor niggles though.

This parc is in a lovely area - everywhere in Luxembourg is only a short drive away. The campsite itself is well laid out, with quite a lot of privacy for the individual units. The camp staff are very friendly and helpful and the small shop on site stocks pretty much everything. We are really looking forward to a return visit next year.
